Birthday – July 3rd 1978
Sign – Cancer
Role – My title is Filmmaker/Editor/Motion Graphic Designer, but my role is assigned per project.
How did you get to JPixx?
I applied via LinkedIn.
What aspect of production are you the most fond of and why?
I love all of it, but pre-production is what I dig the most. If allowed to take a project from A to Z, a well planned production is a true treat to execute on.
What do you enjoy most about working at JPixx?
No two days are the same.
What has been your favorite shoot so far and why?
I would have to say DC Bar. Those skits were very fun.
What do you believe you bring to Jpixx?
Here it goes… This is what I quietly geek-out to.
I am highly experienced in recording audio, conditioning environment for audio recording, audio post-production and delivery methods. My degree is in Audio Engineering (concentration in acoustics) and I’m also a member of the Audio Engineering Society (AES).
I have plenty of experience designing motion for delivered vector art. I have worked mostly for Publicis owned ad-agencies through my creative studio, kreazione.net and for Chamoycreative.com Some of the brands worthy to mention include:
From pre-production of photo shoot to post production and retouching of photography, I love it all. I’ve been published on various websites and a few magazines.
Started as an audio post production artist at Ratio Post production house under the director Kreg Lauterbach (EMI award winning director), was quickly promoted to video editor and eventually to shooter. I have since worked for many production/post production companies. I have also shot for local to national clients.
How important is staying up to date with new industry tools and trends to what you do?
I try to keep up with the times, from hacking Microsoft Kinect for 3D video mapping, to now, AR, VR, MR, and 360˚ photo and video capture. I love to play and figure out the latest trends in Audio, Motion, Photography, and Video. From interactivity to experiential brand activations, I will give my all to stay up to date.
What’s something that JPixx has showed/taught you?
Jon is a phenomenal director. It’s inspiring to see him in the zone.
Proudest moment as a JPixx team member and why?
Whenever I can add value.
What advice do you have for people new to the industry?
Listen, think, then execute.
As of now, making sounds on a modular analog synthesizer, and shooting 120mm film stills. Haha, what a hipster thing to say.
whoof… there are many. Pulp Fiction? Birdman? Amelie?
