Featured Project 01
Formerly Casting Pitt, I developed SetReel as a free casting network for the Pittsburgh, PA area. It serves thousands of actors and filmmakers, as well as organizations including American Eagle and the University of Pittsburgh. In 2014, I partnered with Pittsburgh Filmmakers / Pittsburgh Center for the Arts as an official sponsor of the site. At its peak popularity, SetReel had upwards of 5,000 daily active users and 100,000 page views per month. Because of my success with SetReel, I was asked in 2015 to speak at Pittsburgh Filmmakers about auditioning talent.
Featured Project 02
Infinite Indie was a platform for independent video game journalists that focused on the indie games market. I created the website in January of 2015 and acted as an editor to more than 15 independent authors and over 110 articles. Infinite Indie saw relative success and had established relationships with a sizable number of developers and PR reps. It can still be viewed via the Wayback Machine on Archive.org, though some content may be missing and some design elements may be broken.
Featured Project 03
Scorecery was a platform for independent game journalists and a follow-up to my previous project Infinite Indie. Scorecery's design was a massive improvement over Infinite Indie's, including a more streamlined back end for writers. It was also a departure from only reviewing indie titles.
Featured Project 04
FrugalFlix is a concept for a free streaming service where users can easily find and watch free movies and shows from around the internet. The website does not rehost any content, but simply embeds existing content as individual nodes to create a lightweight platform that provides convenient searching and filtering features.
Featured Project 05
I was commissioned to create Zerotres.mx for an architect in Merida, Mexico. The obvious challenge here was designing a website in another language. Unfortunately, the site was left unfinished due to the client changing career directions mid-project.
Featured Project 06
EditBetter was a crowdsourced collection of video editing tools, plugins, apps, and more.
Featured Project 07
Sometimes I like using plot generators to help inspire ideas whenever I'm working on a new script, so I thought it'd be fun to try making my own. FilmPlot.io is a simple, one-page film plot generator that lets users generate both simple and advanced plot synopses. Users can also lock each plot element individually to prevent them from being changed on the next generation.
Featured Project 08
Six Indies was a minimalist gaming blog that I designed for a friend.
