Just completed this video to promote the George L. Carter Train Museum at ETSU. I originally intended for this project to incorporate alot more 3D elements, but, after going the the footage multiple times and pumping out multiple renders, it just seemed more effective to simplify the project and allow the footage to promote itself rather than focus on the packaging. Additionally, I broke this project apart from the short-form documentary about George L. Carter because I felt that the tone of this piece was much “lighter” and I didn’t want to compromise the Carter historical project in order to make them fit together.
As to the credits – the footage was filmed by Jason Jones, Josh Elliott, and Andrew Simmons of the Office of eLearning at ETSU and the opening clip of the train was provided by John Fleenor of the Archives of Appalachia. The onscreen talent included Kodi Ledford, ETSU president Paul Stanton, museum director Fred Alsop, and various members of the Mountain Empire Model Railroaders (the group that sponsors and maintains the museum). I performed all post-production duties with Photoshop, Illustrator, Final Cut, Premiere, After Effects, Cinema 4D, Audition, and SonicFire Pro.
