“SHAME2LOVE: KIANA’S STORY” – Shame2Love.com is a charitable organization that connects victims of childhood abuse and trauma with counseling and recovery services. This short film was made in order to raise funds to enable a young woman to enter a counseling program to recover from a tragic incident. Dave Hogan conducted the interview and directed the film. All post production was done by Ztech Media.


“TWO CITIES” – This is a short documentary about Park City, Utah and its dual nature as a simultaneous mining ghost town and modern ski resort. It was commissioned by Another Language Performing Arts Company as part of their Ghost Town project. Written, directed and edited by Dave Hogan, “Two Cities” was produced under the banner of Boxelder Films.


CLIP FROM “HUMBLE PIE” – This is a clip from an animated short film for which Ztech did all post production including editing, sound design, After Effects and voice work. It has now played in festivals around the world. It is over 3 minutes long, but we can only show a sample of it because it is still playing in film festivals.


NIVA TRO’S “CHEMISTRY: A MOLECULAR APPROACH” – This is one video of a series of 20 produced for Pearson Publishing. The series serves as a companion for a chemistry textbook. Ztech produced the animated segments for the entire series. The artwork was either taken from the textbook itself, created in Photoshop, or drawn by an illustrator specifically for each scene. Ztech also did the sound effects editing, but was not involved in shooting the live action sequences.


GORDON ACTION PRODUCTS “AIRPLAY” DEMO – Ztech was given already-shot footage of kids playing with this manufacturer’s products and asked to create a video to be played in a loop at trade shows. Ztech edited the footage and also created the motion graphics and transitions. A special note: at about 1 minute into the video, there is a product for which they only had still photos. Ztech edited the photos as to give a bit of movement, since there was no video footage available. This was also done a few other times when there was insufficient footage of a product.


CLIP FROM “SHILOH” STORY REEL – This is the opening sequence from an unfinished animated film story reel. Ztech was responsible for compositing storyboard elements, editing (both picture and sound), and a few visual effects.


CLIP FROM “JJMS PROMO” – This is a small section of a promotional film that was produced for James Jordan Middle School, a charter school in Los Angeles. The film was used for parent and student orientation.
