ENSONO MIGRATING TO CLOUD

Stop Motion

How do you take a complicated idea and make it fun? Tell it with stop motion! My talented colleague, David Wall, gets all the credit for the animating, but I lent a hand (literally) during the whole production process to create this fun explainer.

CAREERBUILDER DEMOS

Always Willing to Lend a Hand

From scripting to production, I was fully hands-on for every part of this project (literally.) First, I worked with CareerBuilder to re-write and fine tune their script. Next, I painted the backdrop to match their branding and propped out the set. Finally on production day,  I served as the hand model in these demos.

Jill of All Trades

As a producer, I definitely consider myself a jill of all trades. Throw me in as your casting director, wardrobe stylist, prop stylist, craft service...you name it. I'll guarantee the client loves the end result.

SMOKEBALL

Perfect Execution

I put my design chops to work creating this set for Smokeball. We shot this in one day with a crew of four in our client's conference room. I propped it out to make the room go from a messy law firm to a clean, minimal one.

One of Chicago's busiest holiday destinations, the Christkindlmarket, offered a new experience: a sit down Stammtisch dinner in the main lodge. We coordinated with German American Events to be there during prime time to get real testimonials from attendees.

FRESENIUS KABI / VETERAN'S DAY

My journalism degree comes in handy during projects like this one, when I interviewed veterans about their impact serving our country, both in uniform and while working for the pharmaceutical company Fresenius Kabi.

KITCHENAID COLOR STORIES
