PROMOTIONAL & MUSIC VIDEOS

The Rhythm Sisters recorded an audio CD in an old country church and I videotaped the process.  Combining the recoding session video with live performances and syncing that with the mastered CD audio a promotional video was made to distribute to festival organizers and booking agents. Available on DVD.


Carole Allison wanted to capture the easy-going, relaxing vibe that he song "I am Contented" brings forth.
We headed up to a scenic property on the Bruce Trail and waited around for the sun to rise.
The footage and audio from that trip comprises the video. "I am Contented" on youtube.
Colour
& Black and White versions online.



Local artist and musician Aaron Lozynsky needed to spread the word about his guitar lessons.
I created a video promo that could be accessed online to a wide audience.

Aaron and I collaborated again in the fall of 2012 to create this music video.
He is performing a cover song of "Car" by Built to Spill.

ANIMATIONS AND VIDEO EFFECTS


Author & Artist Georgia March wanted to bring her cat character to life.
Here I have animated the cat, to have flair and attitude as it dances and plays the cello.
The cat is a main character in her new book, The cat, the belly-dancer and the cello.
