Lacking Pizzazz; a dangerous spot.

If it happens in a split second and you missed it, well- You're Toast! Ever experienced a deep hollow emptiness down in your gut, knowing full well you presented a less than stellar project to your client. It only takes once to know better.

Ever heard: "Oh yep, we can do that, no worries!" Best walk away. Made a mad dash to an experienced solution who knows- Your need for Pizzazz!

So what's holding you back from having a visual presence on the web? Deliver a personal message for your employees that hits home with a bang instead of a dull thud. If you're still afraid to jump from the dangerous- same ol' spot to a place of Pizzazz, where cracking a whip of enthusiasm means a positive rate of climb! Stick around, grab a rocking chair- retire.  Oh, c’mon- Jump! You've got so much to gain and nothing to lose. It's fun out there!

Years of working with Adobe After Effects for numerous clients leaves me with just one thought. Whoa, I did all that? I have only touched the tip of the iceberg when it comes to working with After Effects. I agree that plug-ins help create a more impressive flash to many projects but it's the layering and pic whip usage that impressed me the most. Learning code to increase layer collaboration and the ability of lights and internal camera's inside After Effects takes the Adobe product to an extreme limit that many editors can get lost in.

Add that to your minds imagination and there is no stopping the talents of creation within the confines of the boxed media we call video. How do we think outside the box? We do and we don't. We think outside the box in our minds eye but we place it all inside the box for our viewers to consume. The human mind will take your visual medium in a box and expound outside those limits- and that is where dreams reside.

Here is just a sample of the tip of my iceberg and I have so much more to learn. -Ward
