  • True North

    True North

    The Project This video was created to introduce a new sermon series on the topic of apologetics entitled “True North”. The project centers around a compass that loses its effectiveness as confusion and noise about what the truth really is begins to get louder. This project was concepted and created in 5 days using Blender…

  • Samson


    Intro The goal of this project was to create a video highlighting the story of Samson in the Bible. The idea was to take elements of the story and film visual representations of each element. Before the project officially began, the first step for the team was to simply go back and re-read the story…

  • Desire


    Camera: RED Scarlet W Lens: 70-200mm with 4x diopter Collaborative project with Tim Searfoss The challenge and inspiration with this project was to find a way to create a narrative story without leaning on the crutch of dialogue and without the use of a “normal” wide-angle lens. Everything in this video project was all shot on…

  • God Is

    God Is

    This week I managed to finish up a project that took the better part of a month to go through the concept, design, testing, and final delivery. This project was created for Grace Family Church to introduce a series entitled “God Is” which details the attributes of God and the bigness of God. My objective…

  • Here Is The Church

    Here Is The Church

    For this project, Tim Searfoss, Dan Fajardo, and myself had a very cool opportunity to work with the talented Quina Aragon, on a project entitled “Here Is The Church”. The project featured a spoken word piece performed by Quina and focused on the power of the church when it shows up in real life situations.

  • Make It Yours

    Make It Yours

    This project was, I think, the first completely 3D animation produced as a bump for a sermon series. It was easy enough to source the assets, but the biggest challenge of this project was completing it in a week or two on mid-2010 Mac Pros. This project was more of a makeshift exercise in render…

    Low Poly Nature Animation

    Earlier this month I was asked to create a video to compliment an Easter graphics package designed around the theme of “Hills and Valleys”. Graphically, the idea was fairly minimal, with a simple blue/purple gradient behind white text. Below are the original mockups. With the white silhouette of a mountain, and a blue/purple gradient, I…

  • Hunted


    This is a VFX shot and edit sequence created for a short video in late March 2019. We couldn’t find the ideal location (an open field surrounding a lone tree) for this shot, and I needed too many specifics to match any stock footage. Short on time, I turned to Blender for the solution. All…

    The Gift (3D Animation)

    Flatlay photo to 3D animation This year’s Christmas graphic package was a collaboration between photography, arts-and-crafts, and 3D modeling and animation. From Christmas Graphic to Christmas Animation Once we had a flatlay that was acceptable for print, we needed to use the same objects or similar objects that reflected the same style to bring an…
