FOR THE LOVE

KELLIS MEDIA TOP 5

 

Creating meaningful media isn't just a fun way for me to make my truck payments and buy Red Robin burgers. It isn't just a marketable skill that i've developed since I started designing baseball cards for my little league teammates at 9 years old. This isn't just my favorite hobby. It's my passion. I find myself wide awake at 3am deep into projects like these thinking, "How did I never eat dinner?"

I love what I do.

WORK HARD. PLAY HARD.

 

 
 

BYU LOGOPALOOZA FIREWORKS

In the summer of 2015, this unique fireworks video caught the attention of Cougar Nation without adding any VFX. All FX were done 100% in-camera. 

RESULTS: 40,000 views, 400 shares 

 


BABA YETU

 

Baba Yetu, the Lord's Prayer in Swahili, was my biggest project.

I like to say it was my unofficial senior capstone project. Over 400 people were involved in these 2 music videos and their releases. Baba Yetu was the result of over a year and a half of writing, pre-production, licensing music, traveling to and from Africa, filming, post production, coloring, FX, marketing, branding, etc.

Roles: Associate Producer, Associate Writer, Director of Photography, Glidecam Operator, Editor, Graphic Designer, Color,  and Marketing.

Keep an eye out for the icons and other decorative design elements towards the bottom of the landing page.

BRANDING/WEBSITE OVERHAUL

For a short time, I worked with the former Vice President of PEPSICO to rebrand and overhaul the creative direction of his private venture Center for Leadership Solutions. Responsibilities included creating a branding guide and mockup for  new website. The new look, along with the new online software is currently being implemented by developers and designers in Italy.

NOTE: The landing page to which you will be directed was the only page which was necessary to be completed for this project. All other pages were left incomplete.

RESEARCH PRESENTATION DESIGN

In collaboration with Explosure Media, my task was to persuasively design and organize information from an intensive research on Sizzler's marketing efforts. The goal was to convince the executives at Sizzler to hire Explosure Media as marketing consultants and the presentation went fantastic. Keep an eye out for big changes over at Sizzler!

Here are some of the finished slides used in that presentation
