While living in New York, I befriended a Dutchman, a Norwegian and a Floridian. New York City Explored (NYCE) was a passion project that gave us an opportunity to experience and film the city around us. Though we have all moved away, they remain my close friends and I love to look back at the fun we had together.
Since then, my wife and I revived the project with Travel for Tiu, as we explore cities like New York and beyond. This is an ongoing endeavor where we can practice new techniques in editing and filming.
Our latest travel video done in partnership with Sam and Courtney Hanson documenting the majestic country of Iceland.
This project was a motion experiment that got way more views than we thought it would. Using the Plexus 2 plugin, we tried to make interesting abstract objects and movements. For having set out to do nothing other than making dots move, this turned out to be pretty fun.
Adidas needed an instructional piece for their new, non-connected activity tracking watch – The Sprung. Before it went to stores, a video was needed to introduce and break down the setup of the watch. Shooting a wrist just didn't feel like it was enough, so we decided to light the watch and add some slow turns to spice it up. Who says an instructional video can't be a little sexy?
Taking a lesson from VinhSon Nguyen and adding a couple tweaks, this was a fun foray into the Element 3D plugin, color, and a little bit of sound design.
Fossil tasked us with doing a little featurette of one of their talented leather engineers, Cody Amos, as he hand crafts animals made of a single sheet of leather.

Big Thought is seriously a wonderful organization that works to bring underprivileged youth memorable experiences and engaging learning opportunities. This video was made in tandem with an updated brand book that expressed unleashing a child's imagination and setting no bounds to what their future has in store.
Welcome to our brain. Here's brief collective of projects and tests we've done for nothing more than the sake of learning during our spare time.
The National Cheerleaders Association has established a strong presence across several social platforms and we've put out content on all of them – all positively received we might add. But we decided to go a step further by taking the NCA Brand Book we previously created, and bringing it to Instagram in a new, creative way.
We crafted a fun idea for the National Cheerleaders Association involving a cheerleader's progression through a tumbling pass, but altering her attire as she went forward. The concept being that the NCA isn't just about building great cheerleaders, but ultimately building strong-willed individuals. In addition to writing the piece, I brought a camera along to document the making of.
Long Cove is a lakeside community for those looking to build a vacation home far enough from the buzz a city, yet close enough to drive to. It caters to a wide range of Dallas families including Tony Romo. The ask was that we simply capture the amenities and the beauty of the property for them to use as a sales tool. Instead of stale shots and rough cuts that the industry is used to, we tried to push the concept and story of seamless transitions from one amenity to another.

Dance has always been a big passion of ours. In particular, hip-hop dance. Going to college in Utah, we were always surrounded by a dance and arts community, but we felt a missed opportunity when we moved to New York. We decided to make it a priority to document a crew where hip-hop was born.
Before Andrew started Motion Butter, he had to hustle his way into ad agencies as a copywriter. This little video was his first foray into editing and it worked out surprisingly well. The idea was to show who he was and the work he did. A few agencies like the execution, one of which brought him to Texas to begin his career in advertising and eventually – production.
