New York 2016
A video collaboration between several classmates and I, illustrating our New York City trip for Armory Week 2016. We used footage and photos of the various art exhibitions, shows, and studios we visited to fill digital spaces that represented the real locations.
We worked on separate assets and scenes, then worked together to transition between them, edit details, and composite everything together. The scenes I worked on were: the opening train sequence, Pulse Art Fair, Dream House, Electric Objects, and Spring Break Art Show.

Neighborhood Bike Ride
This video illustrates my most surreal memory: a time when I went biking up and down my quiet street on a Sunday afternoon, lost in thought.

Time seemed to stretch on for much longer than a normal afternoon should have. (2015).
