Here's the latest creation made for Trout Lake Camps! I have been a camper at Trout since 4th grade and on staff there in more positions than I can remember. Nice to still be able to collaborate with them since going full-time with Olsen Media. If you have kids I fully recommend this camp, it's the best!
Here is a sermon starter that I produced for Friendship Church's summer sermon series on Proverbs. Loved doing some stop motion animation and yes, those are my hands!
I had the privilege of working with MN Teen Challenge on a short video that would open up their Gala this month but also ended up being used on their social media to promote what they do and have done to help those struggling with addiction. Since my main goal for for each video is to cause people that are watching them to feel something, it was great to see this video through from beginning to end. Thanks to Erica Christenson for hiring me and also to the actors, who are actually in the program!
Here is the link to MN Teen Challenge's Facebook Page to see the video:
Pastors Mike Sager and Greg Atkins contacted me a while ago to see if I would come along side them as they rolled out a fresh redesign of their logo and mission statement. They wanted a video to capture who they are and what is important to them as they go forward. I really like how their video turned out and I hope it serves them well to greater serve the community in Austin, MN.

I had the privilege recently to film a promotional video for Zach Marino's first book. He is a youth pastor in Waseca, MN at Christ Community Church. I got to see him in his element and it's always awesome to watch people in ministry doing what they are passionate about.
Check out the video below and also check out riseupalive.com for more information about his ministry and to order the book, which should be available in the next couple weeks! Thanks Zach!

Here's another one of the videos I produced for the Minnesota Iowa Baptist Conference. This one comes from Rhythm Church in Mason City, Iowa. The youth ministry is called Verge Ministries led by Beau Stringer. Enjoy!
I was recently hired by the Minnesota Iowa Baptist Conference (covergemibc.org) to produce three videos that tell the stories of three different churches to be shown at their Connect 2014 Biennial Meeting at Bethel University's Benson Great Hall.
Here is one of the three videos, the others will follow shortly. They were really fun to put together and it was great to be able to tell their stories!
Here is a short teaser video I put together for the District Blitz Conference. This was made entirely in Motion 5.
Really fun editing project right here. The footage was taken by Trout's summer staff over the 2013 summer and I edited it together and added the motion graphics. The moving pictures in the beginning took by far the longest time but I think it was a neat effect that conveyed messages well. Let me know what you think!
