Documentary by JABMP (Documentary and Short) Director, Editor, Producer My final Project for BUCDIA (Boston University Center for Digital Imaging Arts). "Waltham's Watch" is a history documentary on the Waltham Watch Factory, that existed in Waltham Massachusetts during the 1850's through the 1950's. This documentary motion picture discusses the factory during it's golden age, which took place during the nineteenth century, and how it contributed to American Industry and American History.
Film (short) by Boschen Productions (Comedy, Family, Animation and Short) Writer, Director, Animator, Producer This is a 10 minute stop motion animation "Screen Symphony" cartoon I made during my Sophomore year in high school, which deals around the antics of a bunch of toys on Christmas Eve; synchronized to Tchaikovsky’s “Waltz of the Flowers". (The short was highly influenced by theatrical christmas themed cartoons of the 1930s, 40s, and 50s). The antics of the toys were photographed with a digital still camera, and the pictures were arranged in Microsoft PowerPoint. In addition I created titles and added special effects to the photos in PowerPoint. To record the show, my computer with the PowerPoint was hooked into a VHS recorder along with a CD player and then recorded onto a VHS tape. Though somewhat crude and ridden with flaws, this is a production that I label as my first ambitious professional film. Even though I had made many other videos and animations long before this production, this was the first one I extensively pre-productioned and story boarded, made to be synched up with a specific music score. The completed short was showed to my TV news teacher in High school, causing him to immediately make me the executive editor of the news television show. In addition, it was also showed to several individuals at the local community access station, prompting them to make me a producer, videographer, and editor of several cable access productions.
