This is my commercial motion work up to date with samples from clients ranging from the Art Director's Club to Comedy Central and BET Networks. To bring my client's creative vision to life, I mainly use Adobe After Effects, Photoshop, Illustrator and Cinema 4D.
Some of the key skills showcased within my reel are:

I've teamed up with my friend Danny Gil to offer an incentive for Millennials to vote in the upcoming elections. A self produced love child project we hope will help make a difference.
This is still a work in progress and is the first of a series we will be working on.
Client: BET Networks
These series of logo designs were made for BET Network's current running series Zoe Ever After. The challenge was to design both a logo for the show and the line of cosmetics inside the sitcom itself.
This first design to the right was one of 2 choices on the final round of approvals.

I was asked to conceptualize story boards for BET Honors 2016 hosted by Arsenio Hall. Using Cinema 4D and compositing in After Effects to make my ideas come to live, I chose to present two concepts for the awards show.
The first uses a split screen idea with Glass and Rock as the strong foundation for Honors. The second idea is meant to be a more elegant approach that fits this particular awards show.
These are image driven Network IDs I worked on for BET's sister network Centric. The first ID featuring moms and their daughters earned me a nomination for a 2016 Promax BDA in the Best Art Direction/Design category.
I processed and cleaned up all images/footage and animated the content with the newly re-designed fresh look of the network.
Hosted by Anthony Anderson, the 2015 UNCF's scholarship award event's promo was shot entirely on green screen.
I teamed up with designer & animator, Jaiman Yun to create several spots for the event. In this :30 second spot, I keyed and rotoscoped 17 of the shots used for compositing into the background.
Client: Art Director's Club
This initiative aims to make women's role in the design industry more prominent. It has been one of my very favorite projects to volunteer for.

BET asked me to create brand integration options using footage provided by Disney to promote the movie Big Hero 6. Under the direction of Dana Kinlaw, I created several versions to choose from that were sent out to Disney for approval. The first is the final approved adaptation followed by the rest of the versions I created for BET to choose from.
This one was an amazing amount of fun as I got to use a lot of compositing skills and Dana gave me a lot of freedom to pretty much use my imagination and manipulate the footage as needed.
This one was a really fun project to work on. My job was to key the first 2 action shots. I was asked to place the actors on an over-the-top, fire/action/explosive background because one can never, EVAH! have enough fire and smoke on an action shot.

Client: Comedy Central
Gabriel Iglesias Show Open for Season 2 of his Stand-Up Revolution Show was completely built from the ground up. I was given 3 musts: MUST have the VW Bug, MUST travel from point A to point B and lastly, MUST have his friend Martín included within the promo.
I started by creating 3 different narratives and the second story line was picked by the clients. From there, style frames for the look and feel of the piece were built. The talent came in for the photo shoot once a style had been chosen and stills were shot on green screen.
Following the photo shoot, the cleaning up process started as well as the creation and break down of the pieces for animating the backgrounds, the talent and all other creatures and people seen in the final version.
After this, I teamed up with Brandon Campbell to cover the considerable amount of animation needed for the final product. As extensive as this project was, it was a great learning experience since I extended my skill set to include directing a photo shoot with the talent. It was a lot of work, but a lot of fun and I'm really happy with the end result.
Community comes to Comedy Central. Yup. It sure did. My challenge for these promos was to key, clean, and compose the footage shot of the main characters of the series into backgrounds I designed with hand drawn elements.
Client: Comedy Central
Based on classic jewelry commercials, this spot aims to display South Park's line of products made for smart phones, tablets and electronics as "high class" items that can be found at your nearest Best Buy.
Footage was shot in-house and I color-corrected, manipulated and composited the pieces to have a dreamy/glossy feel to the showcased items.
