2007 - Present

Broadcast Designer

Maryland Public Television

For in-house production of MotorWeek, create animated segment titles, show opens, lower-third graphics, special features, moving presentations of graphs and/or statistical data and illustrations.

Under the Creative Services department, the bulk of my work involve producing program opens:

- submission of 3 logo/title design proposals done in either Illustrator and/or Photoshop

- the chosen design will then be exported and animated in Adobe After Effects or Apple Motion

- if needed, a separate 3D animation is created using Lightwave 3D

- voiceover and scoring is layered in

- final composited output is a Quicktime movie submitted to the editor

Likewise, I design other program elements like lower thirds, special lead-in transitions, animated illustrations, animated bugs, rotoscoping and promo sponsorships.

Other creative duties include:

- animated flash or still graphics for clients of MPT's website

- print production posters, flyers, brochures

- DVD covers and labels

- scanning slides, books and photos

- photo retouching
