WHAT I DO I'm a freelance videographer specializing in video coverage for events, music videos, promotional content for brands & organizations & talent, behind the scenes coverage and video editing of ALL kinds. I'm a visual storyteller, and I love what I do. REELS :: Production & Editing Reel:: http://....com :: Fashion Reel:: http://....com WEBSITE http://....com VIDEO PORTFOLIOS http://....com http://....com My experience in the past 6 years includes these video types: - Entertainment & NightLife - Fashion - Corporate & Commercial - Weddings & Special Occasions - Education - Product/Business/Brand Marketing - Music -------------------------------------- :: MUSIC VIDEOS :: I provide affordable music video productions for local up & coming artists from all music genres. I am able to work within your budget and that will determine how elaborate the production will be. This includes the following things: -- Number of Locations -- Amount of hours spent on location/s -- Multiple day vs single day shooting -- Travel -- Complexity of editing Here are a few examples of music videos produced with this system I've set up: ZIMRI - "REM" (Pop) **Shot at various LA locations including Santa Monica Pier http://....com George Miguel - "I'm Back" (Country) **Full day in San Diego area at various beaches http://....com Shane Savy - "Chill Mode" (Rap) **All shot at Balboa Beach in Newport within 3 hours http://....com : Acoustic Covers Destiny's Child - Say My Name [Bricia & Acacia Cover] https://....com Rachael Starr - "To Forever" [Joni Llamedo Cover] http://....com I DO NOT have studio access at the moment so all shoots must be on location with no need for green/blue screen or an infinite white background. If a studio is provided then we can move forward. If the music video has already been shot, then I can definitely be your editor! This includes footage from all kinds of cameras including DSLR, HDV & RED :: FASHION :: I HAVE 4 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE IN THE FASHION INDUSTRY My fashion reel represents the best of my work with various brands in SoCal http://....com I produce fashion videos to promote up & coming brands by showcasing their outfits, accessories & the lifestyle. This includes high fashion, beauty treatment in post production, full lighting setups and on location shoots at Fashion Shows, High Production Photo Shoots & Lifestyle Events. I always strive to create the most edgy & exciting fashion videos by incorporating live event footage, interviews, music & acting. These collaborations feature established Models & SuperModels with massive followings on social media, and have reached mainstream credibility by working with Maxim, Playboy, Victoria Secret, TV & Film. With Instagram being such a popular form of social media for models and designers, it's a great way to show off 15 second video clips from photo shoots and even mini look-books that I can put together as part of my editing package. Story-driven fashion lookbooks, important causes and tutorials/DIY are also fair game! ~ EXAMPLES ~ Bombshell Sportswear | Behind The Scenes [Luxury sportswear company featuring super models] http://....com Sample Product Video for Website Product Page http://....com International Salon & Spa Expo [Hair & makeup trade show in Long Beach] http://....com Bonnie-Jill Laflin Presents Hounds & Heroes [Former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader promoting her charity with a fashion product] https://....com 420 Collection [Video lookbook featuring the latest ganja-themed apparel] http://....com Tianna Gregory Calendar Photo Shoot [Featuring a professional model/host with 13 different looks, she has 1 million followers on Instagram] http://....com Fashion lifestyle promos for multiple apparel companies, featuring dance performances & music festivals Let's Blaze | Fire POI http://....be DIY/Tutorial Videos How to Wear your Seamless Mask Bandana http://....com How to wrap your Wraparound Halter Top http://....com :: COMPANY BRANDING | BRAND AWARENESS | PRODUCT MARKETING | GENERAL PROMOTION :: To all up and coming entreprenuers out there, small business owners, inventors and anyone wanting video exposure for their business, I have done a great deal of video marketing projects for different product campaigns and company branding projects. When people go to the company website and the first thing they see is an engaging and exciting video that shows potential clients what you're all about, it takes someone like me to produce it and make it happen. The combination of candid everyday footage of employees, product demonstration, testimonials & interviews, genuine reactions and interactions from people on location and effective call to action with text all encompass what it takes to successfully promote yourself! And if your company has an Instagram profile, that is another great way to reach your audience with 15 second clips showing off what you do and why you're awesome ~ EXAMPLES ~ LendFoundry Commercial | Corporate website video for a marketplace lending company http://....com The eLite Element V2 | Product video including demonstration and full overview http://....com Electric Styles | Rocking Light Up Clothing in Downtown LA [Company commercial for night life fashion] http://....com White Rabbit Group Presents Havoc Thursdays | Yost Theater [Promotional video for nightclub event company] https://....com :: WEDDINGS | SPECIAL OCCASIONS :: My passion for wedding films and other special occasions videos stems from a combination of different passions. These passions include live events, joyous occasions and storytelling through video. These events offer all of this, so each one I shoot is fulfilling every time and this influences the quality of my work. In addition to this is the ability to capture genuine moments that will be eternalized, so people will look back on these moments years from now with a smile. After covering over 3 dozen weddings these past few years, I understand the dynamics and always get in touch with the coordinators,DJ's, bride & groom to ensure the best shot at the best time!
