Another unique challenge from the museum world. Produced for the Harry S Truman Library & Museum by Monadnock Media, this film is about President Truman and the United State's recognition of Israel as a nation/state after WWII. It's a very interesting piece of history, but what made it challenging editorially was the decision to treat one HD projection as multiple screens. Using the Star of David as a base, the exhibit designer broke up the 1920X1200 projection into a bunch of triangular shapes. I treated each shape as its own "screen" to hold different imagery, or parts of an image that occasionally fills the entire projection. This was a fun project to be a part of. Worked with a great group at Monadnock.
SPAULDING REHABILITATION HOSPITAL
When the Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital moved into a brand new facility in 2013 they asked Forge Worldwide and BPI to create several multi-screen video presentations for use throughout the facility. The six-screen version can be seen in their lobby. Other versions, from five screen to single screen cut-downs, are sprinkled about in hallways and conference rooms. Each video features a former patient doing something physical after their time at the Hospital. In this sample, the skier wearing the blue and black lost a leg in the Boston Marathon Bombing. The videos have no sound, just imagery. The videos were primarily shot in 4K which gave me the flexibility of changing compositions and framing during the edit based on the number of screens the shot needed to cover, etc.
THE ROBOT REVOLUTION
The Robot Revolution is here! For this project, a traveling exhibit produced for the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry, I had to re-write the script, help organize a new shoot with 4 humans and 1 robot, as well as design, create, and animate the futuristic background set and all the different robots and video-screens that appear within the final composite. Hopefully, when the Robot Overlords take over they will look kindly upon me.
BIG CAT THEATER
An oldie but a goodie. This three-screen show was done for the Philadelphia Zoo in 2007 as part of its Big Cat Falls exhibit (which would win an AZA award in 20017.) It was supposed to just be some eye-candy that was placed in a pass-through section of the zoo, but it proved so popular that they ended up installing seating and turning it into a mini-theater and it stayed at the zoo through 2016.
