Launch of “Pull Focus” Series

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!


“Watching and Waiting” Wins TIVA Peer Award

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.

Interactive Music Gallery wins Silver at SEMC!

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
 this march.

I Don’t Even Have To BE THERE To Teach You

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!
