Human-Centered Design

A video I produced for a presentation I gave to AmeriCorps VISTAs at Michigan Community Service Commission.

Policy plea/political Video Editing

A video produced for Real Progressives. I used animation and clips to form this production. It’s the first time I have used a lot of these tools.

It is not complete as it will get call-out graphics, branding, and elements for youtube and social media. I hope you like it and it makes ya think.
