The Trailer for the Graphic Novel Prydwen

Over the years I've gotten involved in quite a number of video projects both for myself, businesses, and other creative individuals, and it's always been quite a pleasure trying to bring these often very diverse projects to life.  Some have been quick and dirty editing jobs, while others have been a bit more involved, but whatever the project, it's been a ton of fun trying to learn something new along the way.

For this particular project, I tried my hand at gently animating panels in the graphic novel, so as to infuse just a touch of life and motion in the various scenes. It was a fun experiment, and definitely something I'd like to try to hone-in on in the future. I've seen some incredible effect work done in Adobe After Effects, and I'd love to learn more about it! In particular, I think it would be a blast starting a new art project and setting up the layers and files so that down the road, I could really dig into it in After Effects and bring the scene to life.

One day... one day...



Prydwen Volume 1: Gods and Monsters


It is with the utmost excitement that back in 2012 I also shared a trailer I created for Lynn Hogan's newly released graphic novel, Prydwen!






Lynn put a lot of love when into the graphic novel, so I did my best to try to make the trailer just as exciting and compelling. I’m hoping if I ever do another one of these, that I can continue to up the ante on the presentation.

The audio is original music composed by Fox Amoore that I audio-edited to suit the timing of the trailer further.
