Bomber’s Basketball Hype Video.

Bomber’s Basketball Hype Video.

The coach of this team was the host to a bible study group I attended and when I mentioned that I was shooting videos for a college course he offered me the opportunity to shoot this hype video. Thanks brother. Anyway, Lets watch it shall we?

On a somewhat related note, but completely different focus …

I used to play basketball when I was a little kid; about the same age as some of these girls, but a little younger. However, I was not nearly as good as them. I was the kid who joined a team way more experienced than I was, but the coach let me in because my nephew was really good at basketball and we carpooled together anyway.

Long story short, it was the first time, not the last lol, that I was laughed at by an entire crowd during a live game. I had huge anxiety growing up so instead of blocking, or guarding my opponent, I chose to hide behind and pretend to block. I kind of ran around in circles and tried to pretend they werent laughing at my lack of skills. Needless to say, that was the last time I played as a kid.

When I was in middle school I ended playing everyday since it was the only fun thing to do while I waited for my parents to get off of work. I got pretty good and its the only sport game I truly enjoy playing for fun other than skateboarding. I don’t skateboard anymore though because I lost so much teeth from the falling and the speeding down hills.

The One With the Teacher Taking My Yo-Yo.

The One With the Teacher Taking My Yo-Yo.

It starts with a solicitor given permission to present yo-yos to the entire 3rd grade class. Everyone buys a yo-yo, including me, and they become an instant hit. I start learning tricks and sharing techniques with my classmates.

The teacher confiscates my yo-yo because I wouldn’t stop playing with it in class so I run home to my dad and cry hysterically. I ask my Father if he could get my yo-yo back, and he agrees, grabbing his keys, and loading his piece; a handgun.

I created a monster. My Father was an alcoholic and drug addict, and had been known to make questionable decisions. Bringing a loaded handgun to an elementary school was one of them.

Trying to deescalate the situation I tell my father that it’s not a big deal. We continue to walk around campus, we walk through the halls, and literally no one is to be seen. I tell my father again that I don’t need my yo-yo and that the teacher promised to give it the next day.

We go home. The end…. Kinda.

TL;DR

Watch the video!

MMM…COFFEE!

This video showcases a 10 second mock-up of a coffee advertisement. I want to give a shout out to Kyle Novak! I don’t know if he’ll ever see this, but I would like to give him credit. He was the one who taught me how to create animation with After Effects. There is music, and it might be loud, so be aware of your volume levels. Yay for coffee!

Presentation on Communication Techniques.

For my Advanced Public Speaking course at CSUN, I had to organize, coordinate, and create a presentation. My team and I decided to do it at the Boys and Girls club  and make the presentation on Communication Techniques. Sorry for the bad video quality. I had to be especially careful not to video tape any of the kids, and I was new to filming. Other than that, enjoy!
