PORTFOLIO

I went to film school when we shot on actual film! I recently went back to school to study Digital Media to start a podcast and shoot my own films.

SPRING 2020 COLLEGE OF SAN MATEO Digital Video Production. Me directing my Project #4.
SPRING 2021 CCSF Digital Portfolio. Here’s one of my podcast episodes I posted on my YouTube channel. I chat with Masashi Niwano, Festival Exhibition Director, about Center for Asian American Media’s annual film festival CAAMFest. I book guests, write, record, edit with Adobe Audition, mix, upload to the host site, and manage the social media (website, Twitter, YT channel) for my podcast.

FALL 2020 CCSF Intermediate Adobe Premiere Editing Cutting to a Beat. I shot all the footage in 4K on my iPhone, transcoded, and edited it. We had to add bars and tone, a countdown leader, 10 seconds of black, and a title card at the beginning. After the critiques, I added a spinning effect between the the upside down shot and the parking lot shot, used a motion graphics title card instead of plain text, broke up longer shots with additional shots of birds, wetlands and flowers, increased the vibrance and saturation in each shot to make the colors pop.

Fall 2020 Intermediate Adobe Premiere Cutting to a Beat assignment. I edited this before my instructor changed the parameters of the assignment. We now had to use 4K footage and transcode before we edited. Since this was already done I posted it because it was so fun to do, and cutting to a beat was trickier with this one.

Fall 2020 CCSF Pro Tools with Plugins. I did the sound design for the first 10 minutes of this movie. The movie music and dialogue were fixed, so I couldn’t change them. I added or changed the following in order:

SPRING 2020 COLLEGE OF SAN MATEO Digital Video Production Project #4 SHOOT AND EDIT A SEQUENCE. The assignment was to shoot a short sequence, like opening a can of beans. I came up with a short story called, “Dude, where’s my phone?” I did the storyboards, shot on a SONY AX2000, directed the actors, edited in Adobe Premiere Pro. Music by Henry Mancini and Django Reinhardt.
