Director of Photography, Producer & Editor

In 2020 I oversaw the production of an updated intro sequence for the Modern Workplace series. For this particular project, we partnered with the Studio Ranger & Fox to make the update.

Microsoft’s web series ‘Modern Workplace’ takes a more in-depth look at what modern businesses are doing to stay on the cutting edge of productivity and efficiency. The 2020 season showcases how new enterprises are using technology to transform their workplaces and culture, and how they’re staying secure in the ever-changing digital environment. We tasked Ranger & Fox with creating a brand new show package that would encapsulate the overall ‘transformative’ theme.

With this season's theme being ‘transform,’ our approach was to create a physical representation of the evolving business landscape. The surface is continuously rotating, shifting, and sliding to reveal new information and drive the story. The surface is always alive, filled with energy, and exists in a full graphic form or subtly behind the footage, where it can flip and rotate to bring on supporting show package elements.


Below are some of the storyboards, animatics and test animations that were created while working through this project. I oversaw the Post Production work on this particular project by providing direction and producing support.
