Updated After Effects work for 2016-17

During the past year and half working at Griffin Communications in Oklahoma has opened the door for me to execute some of my After Effects talents. Enjoy some of the work.

nFocus Media is testing the new MEVO remote camera. The Sony 4K chip and quality lens provides 150 degrees of high definition visual landscape. The application for camera controls is provided by the Apple IPhone/ IPad, making it a total remote recording and live steam system.
