Business Card

I had a need to create some business cards for a recent trip I took with the BYU–Hawaii SIFE team. We went to Washington DC and Philly. Didn't end up giving many of these out, but it was fun to finally make a good business card!

Samoan Club 2009

Heres a fun project! I created this for the Samoan club to preceed our performance at the BYU Hawaii culture night. The videos purpose was to show that no matter where you are from, you can be a part of the Samoan club. We also hoped to inspire people to join the Samoan club. Finally, we just wanted to blow people's minds away and get the crowd going before we came on stage! It seemed that such was the case last night!

This was shot using a Sony Z1 Camera. I edited it using Final Cut Pro and used After Effects for special effects and compositing.

Thanks to everyone who helped make this, especially Aljay. Aljay did a great job choreographing the dances also, and he alone should take credit for a great performance. The crowd loved the entire show!

Quick Logo

I made this logo real quick for a friend who was entering a business contest. It wasn't real complex, but I had to do it quick. I probably spent just over an hour on it after revisions and stuff. The lines on the globe actually represent a Chinese character which stands for language and culture. The company's proposal was to assist companies in globalizing and then localizing their company to specific markets, primarily Asia.

Arbinger Web Layout Concept #1

This is a concept interface design for a web based training program I am getting involved in at school. This concept didn't fly so well with them, they want a more "organic" feel, but thats the purpose of these drafts is to help people figure out what they want.

I know its simple, but I felt it was still worth throwing up here since I haven't posted in a while.

The Arbinger program seeks to help people view one another in ways which promote strong relationships. You can learn more about their programs here. They are quite involved with BYU Hawaii because of my professor, Dr Chad Ford, so this is the reason they came to us for assistance in this program.

Signature animation

I created this to test out my new Wacom tablet that I got for Christmas, as well as play with After Effects again...its been a while! Its nothing amazing, but I thought I'd throw it up here anyway.

Laie Point Photo

I added this photo to my personal blog, but it got good enough feedback I decided to throw it up here also. I took this at the Laie Point, Oahu. The time was around 6:45 am. This is the view that I see from my house. I can see most of this panorama sitting on the couch in my front room, while looking out the door! This was a beautiful sunrise.

Laughing Samoans video

This is the video I created for the Laughing Samoans when they came to Honolulu. I didn't realize I was going to be editing this, but it was pretty fun. They are including it on their DVD coming out soon, later this month hopefully, as a special feature. I got paid just a little. Hopefully I get some exposure with it. The video has been hit quite a few times on Youtube. Much more than any other video I have on there!

PCC Villiage Demo Video Intro

I was asked very last minute to come up with this intro video. As you can see, I took still photos and gave them a 3d perspective look, which is not easy. It involves countless hours in photoshop erasing around objects and then using the clone tool to fill the gap. But, I like how it turned out. The full length clips of each of the 3 photos is really cool. It really has a 3d look to it!

Now its time to hurry and get the next project out!

LPoint Productions Logo

I have recently become a part of LPoint Productions LLC, a company that does video production for clientele ranging from bands, to sports teams, to corporations, to weddings. At this point, we dont really have an identity, so I am working on coming up with one. This is our first step: a logo.

We still may revise this, so please comment!
