Certificate of Appreciation, Merry Christmas from INSPI

This past weekend I attended a Christmas Party / Potluck at INSPIMIND.  I completed a Video Production / Multimedia Internship with them this past summer.  I drove all the way up from Glassboro to Paterson during finals week to bring my Guyanese Chow Mein dish.   As expected, I had a total blast and I commend this organization because I identify with their mission and will continue to support the cause.  To my surprise, both the Outreach & Retention Team, and the Programming & Research Team awarded me with Certificates of Appreciation.  Happy Holidays!

Unity3D, Semester Reflection – RTF 03394 – New Media Production

Over the past few weeks, I looked into the various ways Unity3D has been used in the industry.  One of the things I found most appealing and interesting about the possibilities and uses of this platform is mobile technology.  Unity3D accounts for 50% of mobile games.

Check out this clip of my first rodeo in Unity.  This game is unpublished, still a work in progress and I’m still learning how to use the game engine.  I call this game “Runna Boy.”  Eventually, I’ll work on developing an infinite runner game (think Subway Surfers and Temple Run).  This New Media Production course was great overall, because in addition to working my usual Adobe Apps (Premiere Pro,PhotoShop), I was able to delve into Fuse, Mixamo, Unity and work in HTML tocreate an interactive narrative.

Career Update: Studio Photographer (New Jersey)

I recently accepted a permanent photographer role in South Jersey.   In this role, I will creatively pose and photograph individuals, infants, kids, couples and families.  Additional responsibilities include editing, framing and mounting as well as meeting with clients post shoot to sell prints and digital images.

Please note, I will still continue to accept freelance photography and videography projects.  In coming months, I plan to add a scheduling interface to this site to ease scheduling and provide availability.  I am excited about the prospect of increasing my volume of completed shoots, using equipment comparable to what I own and usefor private projects, and supplementing my income while working in creative arts.

The studio is located inthe Deptford / Woodbury area.  Feel free to reach out for special pricing and seasonal studio shoots.

INSPIMIND – Motivational Student Leaders: THANK YOU

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank INSPIMIND for allowing me to work with their non-profit educational leadership organization this summer.  Being a content creator is truly a wonderful experience when capturing imagery of positive deeds intended to uplift underserved communities.   I enjoyed the time spent engaging with students at Becton Regional High School, Montclair State University, William Paterson University and others.   The programs on College Readiness, Drug and Substance Abuse, Peer Pressure, Mental Health, Stress Management, Depression and Anxiety will certainly benefit the outreached students. 

Although the internship has come to an end, I will continue to patronize events and contribute however possible.  Special thanks to the production team, and founder Wilfredo Betance for being welcoming and providing an excellent educational experience.   Learn more about INSPIMIND.
