I finally got the time to get this one finished – at last. Carter Legacy a mini-documentary that tells the story of how East Tennessee State University was founded and the role its benefactor, George L. Carter, played in making the school’s founding a reality. John Fleenor, Media Collections Manager at ETSU’s Archives of Appalachia, provides narration of a story by Ned Irwin, University Archivist. David Currie, Josh Elliot, and Jason Jones assisted with the live action shoot and all still photography was provided by the University Photo Lab, the Archives of Appalachia, and the website Johnson’s Depot. Thanks & props also goes to ETSU Digital Media Services who produced the project and aided in the distribution. I served as director, editor, visual effects artist, and producer utilizing Premiere, After Effects, Photoshop, and Audition on a Mac & PC.

This project required a massive amount of Photoshop & After Effects work for the 2D/3D shots which I’ll go into a little more in a future post. It will be featured during ETSU’s Centennial Celebration next month. Check it out below.
