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:

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 logo for the upcoming Centric Reality Show was created working closely with my current art director Raul Alejandro.
My role was to use textures and fresh colors for the logo to be presented for the approval process. The final logo uses the textures I made for the logo.
Client: Daniel Rivera
This Show Package Design's creation began with the logo. I started by giving the client choices for the typographic treatment of the logo and continued developing and designing the logo itself after the style was chosen. Once the final 2-D illustrator piece was approved, I brought it into Cinema 4D to extrude the type and composite it into style frames for the Show Open.
This piece is currently filed as a Work in Progress but I loved the style frames I created for it. I was really happy to have modeled in 3D the microphone used on the 3rd set of style frames aaaaall by myself.
Client: Jimmy Gil, writer
Working closely with the client, we already had a solid concept in mind for his logo but we quickly realized, it'd work better as a logo for his upcoming writing blog instead. The concept is based off the highlighting and options when writing on smart phones and tablets. The very early explorations feature the client's name and occupation only.
I will be updating this project as we are currently developing what his blog will look like. Stay tuned.
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.
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.
Client: Comedy Central
For the first season of Drunk History, the idea was to ask the inebriated to describe the show in their own words. I animated accordingly to match the voice over.
Again, a fun project that I loved working on.
Client: Posse Foundation/Comedy Central
Working as a team with Julie Verardi, these cards were developed for the 25th Anniversary Gala for the Posse Foundation videos. They were made using stop-motion animation.
I physically built some of the buildings used for the "Alumni Stars" card and many other items were also made by hand. I shot most of the stop-motion pieces that were used to then be composited into the cards.
After the photo shoot, I masked and cleaned up to prep for final compositing. I created the final "Graduation" card myself.
This is the wall in my new apartment. I'm currently still working on this. It is glossy black paint over black eggshell matte finish. This Shakespeare quote has always been one of my favorites.
