Not a promo - but a great example of storytelling.

In the very brief clips - you get what's happening in the scene and connect -- because its familiar.

Artist Needed in Sacramento (And you get to work with me!!)

Smart?  Talented?  A little “off-center”?  Read on!

1331Creative, the marketing team at KOVR/KMAX in Sacramento, CA is looking for a highly creative artist to join our award-winning group.

This CBS-owned duopoly is not your typical(boring) TV station.  Nope.  We have fun.  We take chances.  We even make a few misatkes. 

We do it all in the spirit of creativity.  Our goal is to produce smart work, exceed client/viewer expectations and have a blast doing it.

This position will work on high-end projects with the station’s commercial production team as well as the promotion and art peeps. 

We’re a little weird.  A lot geeky.  And we love to laugh… often.

Sounds like your kind of place?  Before you march into your boss’s office and quit… here’s what we need from you:

  • A killer reel! (you’d be surprised how many resumes we get without a reel… we need to see what you can do!)
  • Expert knowledge of After Effects, Photoshop, Illustrator, Final Cut Pro and Star Wars
  • A passion for producing motion graphics that break through the clutter
  • You MUST be a team player who enjoys collaborating and brainstorming while discussing Sharknado
  • C4D & compositing experience bumps you to the top of the list
  • Ability to shoot video and still photography along with experience directing talent is a huge plus
  • Sharp attention to detail and accuracy;  ability to make tight deadlines
  • Agency or post house experience preferred

Head to for more details.  It's a great place to work... in a great place to live.  

**Note:  Star Wars knowledge can be substituted with SNL knowledge, if you want to really get in good with me.  :)
