Garmin Traffic System - This is the first video I was responsible for from start to finish. I used Studio Max and After Effects. It's nothing special, but I learned a lot. The plane, clouds, and blue orbs are 3D. The rest was generated in AE.

Garmin promo for Speed Channel - This was a little bumper for Speed Channel. Nothing special, but fun.
Garmin nuvi 800 tv/web commercial and animation - This was BIG project. All in-house except for voice talent, I created all of the 3D animation used in the tv spot as well as what's seen on the website. My animations were assembled in After Effects. The out of the blackness theme was a derivation of a test animation I created. It became the entire campaign. I also created a set of vehicle icons themed for this high-end device. Check it out! www.garmin.com/nuvi800

CES booth video - Every year Garmin has a booth at CES in Las Vegas. There's usually a few flat panel monitors mounted throughout the booth which play videos featuring new products. I worked on one of these videos for the 2008 CES. I created a 3D cartoon environment in which live talent interacted with virtual objects. Check it out at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CE54IGpdfZY
