Top Secret Project Revealed!

bloggeroutfit As I posted on Facebook earlier today, yesterday we wrapped a full day’s shoot for this amazing promotional video project I’ve been working on. Since mid-December it’s been in pre-production, all in order to showcase this fun and FABULOUS watch brand to a fashion-loving audience. I can’t WAIT to share the finished product with all of you! Yesterday was like clockwork: we had the best crew ever (we’re talking serious film credits here), the GORGEOUS and talented Meredith Adelaide as our actress, a beautiful location just on the edge of the Pearl District, and our Production Designer who whipped a blank slate into a fully-furnished room in just over an hour.

I was posting updates on Instagram throughout the day – you can check some behind-the-scenes sneak peeks out here. What could be better than gorgeous fashion, a fun day shoot, a talented and upbeat crew, and Modify Watches, the BEST COMPANY EVER to partner with to do all this??!

watchesintrayJust look at those colors!! Go Modify!!

Stay tuned for the finished video, coming up soon!

DIY Pretty Pearl Ring (with Video Tutorial!)

So finally I’ve finished a DIY video for my latest creation: a Pretty Pearl Beaded Ring. It’s taken a super-long time from the planning to the execution to the editing, and I definitely couldn’t have done it without the help of my co-creator, Emily Dokken. (She’s just awesome – she has a discerning eye for framing artistry and a wonderful energy. Check out one of her other videos: Burning the Behemoth on Vimeo…it’s a fascinating story of an artist’s journey to burn his wooden mammoth creation in Washington.)

I had waited to release this video until after I had re-branded with my new logo and everything…plus finding the music took searching through 600+ tracks on the FreeMusicArchive.

Thank you so much, Emily, for your amazing collaboration!

Portland Saturday Market Hustle & Bustle Fashion Show Video

As some of you may know, I’ve been working part-time at a local video production company and stage rental house.  We did a promo video for the Portland Saturday Market Fashion Show (Hustle & Bustle) last month, and I wanted to share the results.

I did all the titling and motion graphics for the piece, so I’m showing off a bit.;-)

A little bit of Portland fashion for ya.
