I'm Jake VanHuss - a designer, production and post-production artist. I've been doing the freelance thing on the virtual and local level for a little over 3 years now on projects ranging from graphic and web design to interviews and promotional videos. Presently, I also work as an Editor, Post-Production Artist, and Videographer in the Office of eLearning at East Tennessee State University - where I received my Master's in Engineering Technology and Digital Media in 2008. In my spare time, I've created short films, animation projects, 3D designs, and, in the very near future, my first full length independent feature. My design skills range from modeling, texturing, and rendering in 3D to photo restoration, logo and promotional design, and web design. My production skills and experience include screenwriting, directing cinematography, lighting, and special effects makeup. My post-production skills consist of editing, compositing, visual effects, motion graphics, matchmoving, and encoding. My weapons of choice include After Effects, Maya, Premiere, Final Cut, Cinema 4D, Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver, Boujou, Flash, Audition, SoundForge, and Fusion among others.
