Final Bout II / KDF

Client . Keep Drifting Fun / Final Bout
Role . Motion
Date . 2015

Long time mentor / friend / overall rad guy Will Roegge and friend / beard god / video game partner Joshua Herron recently covered the grassroots drifting event Final Bout II, a carnival of beautiful cars getting silly on a racetrack. I was honored to be asked to design some titles for it. 

I was asked to do something short and sweet, but I had way too much coffee and the footage was way too fun not to do something really special motion-wise.

So with a dash of comic books, and a bit of King of Fighters, I present Final Bout II : 

Formula Drift / Long Beach 2013

Client . Formula Drift / YAER Productions
Role . Motion
Date . 2013

Formula Drift is where I began my video career. I've been covering it since 2005 and have missed few events since then. 

I was asked, on behalf of YAER Productions, to spice up some Formula Drift videos in 2013 with motion graphics. Here is the first of those pieces. 

Vaughn Gittin R/C Car Chase

Client . K&N Engineering
Role . Director / Camera / Editor / Graphics
Date . 2012

A collaboration of three directors, Andy Laputka, Will Roegge and Skylar Smith, this project for K&N Engineering was a viral success. Formula Drift champion Vaughn Gittin Jr. chases an HPi R/C Car version of himself around the manufacturing and distribution facilities of K&N Engineering, a high-performance air filter company. 

My responsibilities for this production were co-directing, shooting, editng and providing motion graphics and animations for the final piece. 

Keep Drifting Fun

Client . WR+Co.
Role . Camera / Editor
Date . 2011

A long time friend, and mentor, Will Roegge asked me to help him put the finishing touches on his grassroots drifting documentary Keep Drifting Fun. Him and his cohort Joshua Herron had been traveling the country in a VW Bus covering small drifting venues and cultures. 

I was brought in to help edit the final piece, and to help film and edit the final segment in Phoenix, AZ.
