Through my connections to AU as an Adjunct Professor, I had the honor of acting as Creative Director the relaunch of the CMSI web series Pull Focus. Aside from acting as script supervisor and animator for this initial installment, my task was to formalize fonts, colors, and graphical styles for text, archival video, captions, interview IDs and the like. I look forward to seeing the students run with it!
I’ve had occasion to work on a few short pieces that let me explore different aspects of animation from my long-form museum work. Here are a few small samples!
This show was produced by Hillmann & Carr for the Oklahoma City Memorial & Museum. We used a combination of first person testimony and archival news footage to tell the story of how Oklahoma and rescuers from across the nation responded to the attack on the Murrah Building in 1995.
I was the editor for this film. It previously won a Bronze Telly, and this weekend was the winner of the TIVA Peer Awards Bronze for Editing. What makes this impressive is that this show was cut on Avid, which is more like a torture device than an editing package.
Hillmann & Carr won Silver in the Southeastern Museum Conference Gallery Installations competition! The “Making The Music” Gallery was a part of the full media production we performed for the Birthplace of Country Music® Museum in Bristol, VA/TN.
Produced by Hillmann & Carr for the Birthplace of Country Music Museum, I was the UX/UI designer and the Music Producer for this interactive station. We worked with the software developers at Brightline Interactive on the final execution of these stations.
This exhibit also won the Award of Excellence
from the Tennessee Association of Museums
It’s official! I’ve received my Certificate For Online Learning at American University. This means that I’ve completed coursework that covers the pedagogy and technology of creating and teaching asynchronous online courses. I’m pretty excited. I hope to have the chance to try it out soon!

I was really pleased to find out that a spot the Foundation Digital Media was nominated for a 2014 Regional Emmy in Sports Editing. My contribution was the motion graphics. The good folks at FDM did the rest!
I’ll be sure to let you know if we win!
The film I edited for the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum, “Watching & Waiting”, has just won a TELLY award! This is a Hillmann & Carr production, and we dug into a mountain of primary source news footage to tell the story of how Oklahoma reacted in the initial aftermath of the bombing, and prepared itself for the long journey to recovery.
