Favorites from March 2014

Here are some of the frames I enjoyed from March. Better late than never. I also had the opportunity to do a few multimedia pieces in March. The first video I did was a quick hit video for a large package we did on the heroin epidemic in our community. I also did a video for St. Patrick’s Day on how to pour the perfect pint of Guinness.

Others simply captured an excellent moment. My first round of edits left me with near 100 images. I was able to whittle it down to 45 that I really enjoyed […]
