MY EXPERIENCE

ADDITIONAL SAMPLES

Visionarium - Freelance Client

 

After Effects, Illustrator and Photoshop were used to create this 3 minute video for Cisco. There was quite a bit of motion tracking taking place in this project.

Cisco Business Critical Services

 

This one minute thirty second video was produced using After Effects and Illustrator. There were some challenges with the animated path that we set to morph seamlessly from scene to scene while keeping in sync with the voice over.

Demo Reel - 2017

 

This demo reel is a collage of some of my older samples with Barona Casino. Almost all of the logos were designed in Illustrator and animated in After Effects. Photoshop and Premiere were also used in some clips.

Scott Reinhardt

Director of Marketing at Taylor Guitars

 

David is a creativity machine. That simple. Fueled by his artistic talents, his unbelievable command of the many pieces of software he's able to leverage, and his drive to do great work, the stuff just flows from him. He works so fast, and responds just as fluidly to requirements and direction as he does to the challenge of a blank slate. If a hard-working and gifted creative talent is who you seek, then look no further. You'll be glad that you rolled the dice on David.

Brendan Cahill

Creative Director at True North Agency

 

I've worked with David on multiple motion graphics projects over the years, and he's rock solid. Typically, I'll art direct and bring David on as an animator to execute. That can be a tough position because it requires understanding and being faithful to someone else's vision, while at the same time bringing your own perspective and good ideas. That's exactly what David delivers. Also, and not to be undervalued, he's a friendly guy and super easy to work with!

Marco Panattoni

President at Visionarium Inc.

 

David is an extraordinarily talented animator. I have hired David continuously since 2013 to animate videos for the largest tech companies. He always delivers the goods. David is conscientious, responsive, and fast. It's been a pleasure working with David for 8 years and I'm looking forward to lots more.

Joel Gaspar

Social Media Marketing Specialist

 

I had the pleasure of working with David while at Barona Resort & Casino for almost 7 years. I've worked with him on numerous video projects. His animation and video work is top-notch. He keeps pushing the limits with his skills and is willing to try new things. David works effectively and is always willing to help. He's a team player and would make a great asset to any team! I highly recommend David Walters!
