Music has always been one of my favourite things – in life. And the creation of music is always satisfying – being able to take notes and make it evoke emotions has, and will always be powerful.
Over the years, as a creative content producer, I have dabbled in music production here and there, and here are some beats I have put together from about 2018-2019. No, I’m not a Pharrell, but hopefully somewhere in the field — even if its on the bench, on the practice field away from the main game.
Feel free to connect for this and all your other music placement needs.
Since there will most likely not be much football this year, I decided to take a project on of merging NFL endzone celebrations w/ a Video Motion Graphics technique called ‘Scribble’. I now have much respect for video animators; a seemingly short animated sequence takes a long time.
All video footage is copyright to the NFL and its media partners.

When you can’t use the source footage for whatever reason, but you still think what you spent hours/days on needs to be seen – voila, use a cartoon effect and savage some of your soul. The trials and tribulations of video production Music: Goose Goddi Productions Editing: Me (c) 2017
Sometimes you have to show a potential client the vision before they agree to pay you – however, in this case, though I think I was able to edit and splice together some visually engaging clips, it still didn’t lead to new business. C’est la vie.
Plugz – Real Talk
This was a fun video shoot jumping across rooftops with camera equipment in Kensington Market in Toronto several years ago.
NSNG stands for ‘No Sugars, No Grains’, coined by celebrity Trainer Vinnie Tortorich, is a nutrition plan (don’t like using the term ‘diet’) that is great for keeping the weight off. The idea behind NSNG, is that sugar and grains are hard for the body to process and burn off; thus an excess of sugars and grain products lead to weight gain. And when you think about it, I’m sure you can see the parallels of eating too many grains like your cereal in the morning with that bagel — this mix of ‘Simple Carbs’ takes hours if not days to fully burn off if you are not physically active for the day. So removing or severely reducing the amount of sugars and grains from your palette will help keep the weight off. Now, by ‘sugars’, this refers to any added sugar (natural sugars from fruits are okay).
So WTF to eat?!?!
I realized that I haven’t wrote a blog post in awhile, and just wanted to write a quick post. Last post was in May 2016, and a lot has happened in the world since then — a lot.
However, in such a tumultuous state of time, we have to stay true to our goals, dreams, and desire – that’s been a constant battling theme with me. And for those that are battling the same, keep your head up, and keep moving the feet forward … even if it is a slow pace.
