James Emmerich 2014 Editorial reel
Added on 3/13/2014
This is a compilation of various projects I edited recently. I performed in-depth color correction for all the on-air spots (MTV, USA & Chiller) and also rotoscope work on the Martin Codax label at the end of that spot (replaced old logo on bottle). I recreated the graphics seen in the Chiller spot and edited all the music for each piece.
