Project overview

I spent four months at Downstream, a Portland-based interactive studio, creating animated content for Johnson Controls Executive Briefing Center. This is a reel highlighting some of my work on the project.

Downstream focuses on creating digitally augmented environments. The Johnson Briefing Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin uses several interactive tables and touchscreen kiosks, as well as projected video content, to immerse the visitor in the experience. Below are photos of the space where you can see the tables and kiosks in use.

My tasks ranged from the production of a stand-alone, two minute, narrated video, to the creation of sets of animations to be used on interactive tables and kiosks. I also oversaw and assisted in the production of a piece called the Global Welcome Wall – a looping, branded entry animation that the visitor sees as soon as the elevator doors open. In addition to animated content, I was tasked with rendering a dozen high resolution 3D images.
