Men As Allies Branding

Men As Allies Branding

Men As Allies Logo, Branding & Print Men as Allies is a new event/group bringing awareness and support to domestic violence in Columbia, MO. When True North of Columbia‘s Director, Barbara Hodges, asked me to work on a logo that incorporated their established branding along with a new concept for a special event I was honored. I’ve had the pleasure of serving on the committee for their annual Little Black Dress event since 2014. Below, you can see my creative process for this logo. At right is a finished ad published in a Spring 2015 issue of Inside Columbia magazine. The first round of rough designs were an exploration of font choices and arrangements with the True North star. The second round of rough designs narrowed the font choices and explored how the logo would look at a small size since it was going to be used for promotional items. The third round of design solidified the font, arrangement and added a grounding design element: the circle background. This project was completed during my time at Joe Machens Dealerships. It was completed under art direction from Barbara Hodges of True North of Columbia and Mary Jo Henry of True North/Joe Machens Dealerships.      Imagine a Safer Community   Hotline: 573.875.1370 or 800.548.2480 Help Your Community...
10th Anniversary Barrel

10th Anniversary Barrel

10 for Ten Barrel Selection Video Production, Photography In the end, after much deliberation, we chose barrel number ten.  Only after cheers, congratulations, pictures and hugs did it hit me. We picked number TEN, celebrating our tenth anniversary, it was meant to be! – Reine Knobbe About This Video I had the pleasure of accompanying Chariots of Fire Customs, LLC owners Jan and Reine Knobbe (aka my dad and mom) on a special trip down to Lynchburg, Tennessee to help select a barrel of Single Barrel Select Jack Daniels to celebrate their 10th Anniversary in business. I captured a ton of footage using their DSLR camera and did some editing in iMovie. It was a fantastic trip and it gave me a chance to work on my video editing skills to help promote their commemorative bottle sales too!     Kind words from Dad go here… Jan Knobbe 49% Owner, Chariots of Fire Customs, LLC I Want More Like This?    I make short promotional videos for products, companies and events.

Dogwood Solar Drone Video

Dogwood Solar Drone Video

Dogwood Solar Drone Promo Video Video Production I first met Marie when she worked on a project of ours before she was publicizing her design firm. We worked well together and I really enjoyed the way she went through the creative and design process. Since that time, I have hired her to help me learn Adobe Creative Suite as well as a number of other projects. She is professional, prompt, and an excellent designer. I’d highly recommend you contact her for your next project. Dan Shifley Owner, Dogwood Solar Drone Footage The footage seen in this video was provided to me by Dan. It was captured over the course of a day while they installed solar panels for a client. The footage and still shots in the slideshow at right were captured by a drone. This is the first project I’ve done video editing for footage I didn’t take. This is also one of my early projects using motion design on the logo in the closing. My process involved watching all the clips provided, dropping the most interesting ones onto the timeline, selecting audio and importing to the timeline and then proceeding to clipping and adding transitions and effects. The closing was completed last. Ideally, the audio would have also received some treatment to lengthen it to the full clip time. *Nerdy Details: Audio is Progressive House from iMovie. Logo fly-in effect created in Adobe After Effects using this tutorial from Mattrunks. Editing was completed in Adobe Premiere Pro.       I Want More Like This?  I make short promotional videos for products, companies and events. Let’s chat! Take...
Volkswagen GTI Walk-Around

Volkswagen GTI Walk-Around

2015 Volkswagen GTI Walk-Around Preview Video Production Walk-Around Video The above video was shot on location at Joe Machens Volkswagen of Columbia together with Marketing Manager Sarah Hassemer. Final edits were completed in iMovie with audio from iTunes. This was our first production and my first video project. We had taken the vehicle out for a photo-shoot prior to filming to get a lot of the stills (seen at right). Filming lasted about 2 hours with another 6 hours of editing and post-production. Since then, filming and post-production has become much more efficient and we’ve invested in a mic to capture better audio.     This project was completed during my time at Joe Machens Dealerships.
