Menu About me My equipment

introduction

I originally got into video editing in 1997 when I made several music videos for a local convention's opening ceremonies using 2 VCRs.

Since then, I've made a number of music videos for conventions and the many panels I have done and hosted. Most of my work is done to Science Fiction movies and series such as Star Trek, Star Wars, etc, but In 1994 I also made 3 vides using anime for the local club I was involved in.

In 1998, I got a digital editing card from my PC and since then I've been editing my videos digitally and I have also ended up re-mastering several of my old videos.

When I went to AnimeExpo in 1994, I almost entered two of my anime videos in the music video contest, but I missed the deadline and didn't realize they were taking entries right up to the first night of the convention. When I returned to AnimeExpo in 2000, I entered two of my anime music videos and ended up in the finals with one of them. Since then, I've entered into quite a number of anime music video contests and have ended up winning several awards. I also have entered on of my re-mastered Star Trek videos into a Star trek music video contest and to my surprise it won.

Since then, I continue to make music videos to expand my editing and software skills. In my recent works, I've been trying different things to push the envelop of digital editing and my capabilities.

Originally I started editing graphics back in 1987 when I first got a Mac. Then when I upgraded I crossed over to a PC platform in 1992 on which I spend 6 years doing desk top publishing. I got my first video capture card in 1998 from which time I started into digital editing. I also have several additional computers, one being a high capacity server with a running a RAID 5 ATA disk array for backup and video archiving, as well as a AMD processor based system for my general internet, word processing requirement.

Note: I have made available a selection of videos for downloading. I have limited the amount of users who can connect to the FTP site to 5, so if you cannot connect please try later. I also have a bandwidth monthly limit that once reached I'll take the videos down for the rest of the month. Please download no more than 2 videos at a time to give everyone else a chance. Please right click on the links and use "Save as" to download (no video streaming please).

I originally made this video for a panel I did on Star Trek back in 1994 with two VCRs. I wanted to portray all the red shirt deaths seen in the original Star The series. I played the video at several Star Trek conventions as well and the crowed seemed to love it every time. When I got my first editing card back in 1998, I decided to re-master this video.
