Chance Emerson Promotion

My cousin is a musician – you can find him on Spotify. As his favorite cousin and official Director of Media and Marketing, I’ve worked with him on all sorts of projects, from music videos to social media campaigns.

Here’s some of that work, sorted chronologically.

2021: Spotify Canvases, Remote Editing, and VFX

The official Spotify Canvas for ‘Gloria Gracie’ which I pulled from the music video due out soon. While I couldn’t film this video (they shot in Taiwan due to the pandemic) I modified my work on the bridge VFX to make this endless loop.
VFX for an upcoming music video I edited remotely, shot by Chance and company in Taiwan.
One of my shots at a pre-pandemic dining hall gig with Chance and his band.
More VFX – full video coming soon!

March 2020: The Raspberry Men Marketing Campaign

This one has two parts – first, a coordinated 9-day marketing campaign promoting Chance Emerson’s then-upcoming release The Raspberry Men.

See the full 9 days on instagram – it’s the multi-panel collage from March 2020 that makes up the album artwork.

The campaign also included targeted Facebook and Instagram ads designed for a few specific demographics, including alumni of Brown University where Chance attends school, listeners in our age group, and people likely to interact with his pages. The ads reached an audience of 100k+ and generated above average interaction with his profile.

When I was a student at Andover I worked in collaboration with the Department of Admissions, Student Activities Center, and other campus groups to create a slew of various promotional content. Here’s some of what I worked on:

Working with the Phillips Academy Andover Department of Admissions over Winter 2016 and 2017, I created a series of five ‘department intro’ videos designed to give newly admitted students a sense of what Andover offers by giving them an intro to various academic and extracurricular departments on campus. Here’s one of the five.
