Some of the projects I have worked on

Inteplast Group IBS Grocery/Retail 2023

Collaborating with the team at Inteplast Group IBS for this year’s “Year in Review,” we embraced an exciting superhero theme. The initial concept revolved around a group of heroes, each representing a different product, uniting to overcome various challenges. These challenges, symbolized by the nemesis, included obstacles faced by the business such as the single-use plastic ban in Canada. The video aims to highlight the company’s innovative adaptations and the eco-friendly products they offer to their customers, emphasizing their commitment to sustainability and greener business practices. After several meetings, it was agreed that there would be one superhero, Captain Bundle, to take the viewer through the story. This was a really fun project to work on.

Windsor-Essex Community Opiod and Substance Strategy (WECOSS)

This video production by our company Pangraphica provides a virtual tour of SafePoint at 101 Wyandotte Street East, the first health facility offering supervised consumption services in Windsor. The purpose of this video presentation is to inform potential clients, businesses, and residents about the operations and services provided at SafePoint. I designed and created the title sequence, the callout drone footage and the 3D floorplans that highlight the different areas of the Safepoint site.

Inteplast Group IBS Grocery/Retail 2022

Following the success of last year’s presentation, Inteplast Group IBS Grocery/Retail enlisted our assistance once more for their 2022 video review. This year’s theme revolved around a road trip, and prior to our initial production meeting, I developed delivery van concepts that showcased the challenges they faced. There was a plethora of images to incorporate, which they graciously provided. Their primary obstacle in 2022 was the implementation of a single-use plastic ban in Canada. They were highly impressed by the concepts, and the animations swiftly came together based on these ideas. To emphasize the van, it became the sole object adorned with vibrant colors in the scenes. Despite working within a tight timeframe, we expediently delivered the final product. As before, effective communication played a pivotal role. Their video presentation garnered positive feedback, and I eagerly anticipate future collaborations with them.

Gordie Howe International Bridge Project

Working on the Gordie Howe International Bridge Project (GHIB) has been the highlight of my career, and it’s one of my favorite projects. The complexity of the work for the Windsor Detroit Bridge Authority (WDBA) keeps everything fresh. We’ve covered events, interviews, news, and even filmed and photographed the wind tunnel testing and construction of GHIB. Our close collaboration with the WDBA communications department ensures a seamless production process. Not only have they been extremely satisfied with the results, but our motion graphics have also added a new level of visual appeal. The Annual Public Meeting Presentation videos, in particular, have received positive feedback and become the centerpiece of the events, eliciting enthusiastic responses from the audience members. Our work for WDBA has even been recognized by CTV News. For instance, the video I’m sharing, the 2019 APM with the theme “Building Foundations,” showcases my contributions such as the 3D title, Four Components, and the video wall and end titles.

Inteplast Group IBS Grocery/Retail

Our client required a video review of 2021, they provided all the images. The premise of the video was to highlight the difficulties they faced during the COVID-19 lockdowns. The initial idea was to reflect living and working in box and how they broke out the box to exceed in sales, despite the lockdown.  A box was the hero of this project, however there were a lot of images to show, so we had to think outside of the box. No pun intended. I wanted the animation to flow through the video with the narration, the video needed to be 3 minutes long, so there wasn’t much time for transitions. So, it needed to move fairly quickly. There was a lot to iron out during the process and constant communication was key. I’m really pleased with the outcome.

Putting Académie Ste-Cécile International School on the map

This project was somewhat of a challenge. Académie Ste-Cécile International School (ASCIS) needed a virtual tour for their website. Due to the COVID-19 travel restrictions they were unable to present their school around the world at conventions and needed a presentation to attract students, not only internationally, but also locally, here in Windsor ON.

We filmed this at a time when many of the students were learning remotely due to the pandemic, we were also in mind that Ontario was heading into yet another lockdown. Considering the amount of work we put into this project this was relatively a fast turnaround. We produced two videos for them, one for the upper school and the other for the elementary school.

On top of being in the field, filming the interviews, drone footage and B-roll, I also worked on the title, infographics, video wall and end titles. The focus had to be on their logo, it is very important to the school and reflects the four values of ASCIS.

Fast turnaround for TERSANO

Our friends at Tersano were in a bit of a quandry. Due to the pandemic, sales for their product iClean mini had increased. The product is an alternative to conventional off-the-shelf cleaning products, which are used for sanitizing work surfaces. The problem they had was that their current blow-up diagram didn’t reflect the product and they had received feedback from their customers. They needed to act quickly so this had to be a fast turnaround as they needed to update their website quickly.

I picked up the job on that evening and had the diagram delivered to them the next day. I reproduced this in Adobe Illustrator, there was no template available so everything had to be built from scratch and all I had to work on were reference shots and the original diagram as a guide.

Getting Paul seen around town

I don’t get much call for 2D illustrations, but when I do, I jump at the chance. Paul from Insulating Insulators needed a van wrap and an illustration for the van doors. He wanted to be seen on the road, being a small city advertising in this way is a great way to create business. We were happy to help. I didn’t have much to work with, all I knew was that he wanted a superhero and it needed to be eye catching. I decided to model the character on him, he loved the initial sketches and palette. From the initial sketches I rendered in Procreate I reproduced the character in illustrator. Paul has already getting great comments from onlookers and customers, which is exactly the feedback we wanted.

Doug and Andy’s Wedding

Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. Both avid Doctor Who fans, they wanted the ilustration to reflect this. I took a cue from the Doctor Who episode, The Big Bang.

Traci Gould’s Memory Book

In loving memory of our dear friend Traci. We had the idea of creating a book of memories that we could share with her family back in Australia. The illustration was Mary Poppin themed, as Traci was everyone’s favourite Nanny.
