About the author

Hi! I'm Mike Egan.

I'm a video editor / motion graphics animator by day, and sometimes also night.

I've been making moving pictures for the information superhighway for over ten years! 😬

I also love writing, photography, video games, and making little websites.



Video Editing: Adobe Premiere; Short-form social videos, vertical video, promos, commercial ad campaigns, brand films, short films, short and long-form documentaries.

VFX/Motion Graphics: Adobe After Effects, Photoshop, Illustrator; Chroma keying, motion tracking, rotoscoping, motion design, animation.

Writing: Dream Avenue; Non-fiction and fictional video scripts, reviews, editorial, aggregation.

Photography: 35mm film on Olympus OM-1 and Jazz Jelly 207, largely w/ Lomography film; Digital on Canon 70D and iPhone 12 mini.

Web Design: Not much more than what you see on this website.

Languages: English (fluent), Japanese (beginner), German (high school was a long time ago).
