I produced this behind the scenes look at the creation of Ballet Austin’s upcoming production of The Magic Flute. To say that it’s ambitious of them to take on this opera is an understatement. With the backing of the Austin Symphony and the aid of giant shadow puppets, Stephen Mills and company have turned an 18th century Mozart masterpiece into a contemporary feast for the senses. Being there to film this process unfold was an incredible experience, and I can’t wait to see the final show for myself.
I worked with Sparksight, a great local company, on this brand identity project for one of their clients. They provided me with the voice over track and music, and I created the video from the ground up using stock photos and some original digital creations.
That's the great thing about Adobe After Effects, the program I used to make this. It →
I've always loved cooking shows. I used to watch Julia Child and Jacques Pépin on PBS when I was a kid. When I was in high school, my then girlfriend (now wife) used to watch rising stars like Emeril Lagasse and Ming Tsai on the Food Network after school. And now, I can't seem to go a →
It seems as though I blinked my eyes and ended up in December. 2010 is coming to an end, and I'd like to thank all of my wonderful friends and family for their love and support, and my amazing clients for the fun and fascinating projects on which I've been fortunate enough to work. I've seen my one-man business grow →

Ballet Austin hired me to create a short promotional video in the run up to their 48th annual production of The Nutcracker. If you dance ballet as an adult, then chances are you've been dancing in The Nutcracker for most of your life. This behind-the-scenes look into the production includes interviews with dancers at all levels of their career -- →
My wife, Virginia, and I love music, so it really worked out well for me when she decided to start a blog devoted to the subject in April of last year. The passion and hard work she dedicates to each and every post benefits any and everyone scouring the web for music news and commentary in Austin, in Texas, and →

I hear that tickets are still available for the shows, which run from September 24 - 26.
Description from Ballet Austin's website:

I was up late this past Friday night, and flipped on the TV looking for something to entertain me for a little while before I hit the sack. I was expecting the usual late night fare of kitchen-gadget infomercials, so I was pleasantly surprised when I landed on KLRU-TV and saw they were rerunning an episode of Austin City Limits →
Now that some of the dust has cleared around the relaunch of this website and the official conclusion of Docubloggers, I found a bit of time to create a new logo. The old one was something I put together hastily last year when I launched Seanningham.com version 1.0, and I've been itching to change it ever since. I know, I →
