My video work

I love making interview-style web videos for small businesses and charities. Since I work alone, I use a modest but professional setup that makes the interviewee look and sound great: sharp, in-focus, well-lit, with a nice blurry background whenever possible, and always with great audio. My current gear list can be found here.

I shoot in 4K, though most of my output is published on the web in HD (1080p). For years I used Vegas Pro to edit my videos, but in the last year or so, I've switched back to Adobe Premiere Pro.

Similarly, for years I mostly used Sound Forge to edit my audio, but more recently I've been turning to Adobe Audition as my main audio-editing tool.

For software demonstration videos, I use Camtasia Studio to record and edit my screen captures.

And, I occasionally use Adobe After Effects to tweak a lower third or a transition that I've purchased.

Examples of my videos

Title: "Introducing DynaSCAPE Software"

Client: DynaSCAPE Software Corp.

With more than 24,000 views to date, this is probably my most-seen video. I edited it, recorded some of the software sequences (with Camtasia Studio), and posted the final video on YouTube. I also wrote the script for this one.

Titles: "Rudhro's Story" & "Thelma's Story"
Created: 2019

Two examples of a series of PSA videos that I made for Asthma Canada. I recorded the interviews and edited the videos.

I recorded the interviews, edited the video, and posted it on YouTube.
