I'm Jake - a designer, production, and post artist. I've been operating my freelance business, VFXJAKE, on local and remote basis for over 6 years now on projects ranging from graphic and web design to interviews and promotional videos. I've spent the past four years as a media specialist in the Digital Media Services department of ETSU's Office of eLearning where I've worked on a range of projects including recording live events, producing promotional videos for university departments and third-party clients, video and sound editing, graphic design, and video encoding as well as managing archived projects. I also do contract work for StudioNow in Nashville, TN as well as New Patients Inc. in Las Vegas, NV. In my spare time, I've created short films, animation projects, and 3D renderings as well an independent feature.
My production skills consist of screenwriting, directing, leading creative teams, cinematography, lighting, and fx makeup. My post-production skills include editing, compositing, motion graphics, visual effects, video encoding, and DVD design. My design skills range from modeling, texturing, and rendering in 3D to print and web design.
