Wow, its been a few months since my last post. For starters, I hope all of you had a great Summer! I decided to take some time away from the blog and the website to work on some other projects, but also just to take some time and relax, the first half of this year was very busy and I needed the break.
As I mentioned in my last post, I was going to start digging into The Getaway, which I have. I've also made some more progress on the "Ghost Hunt" project, and I hope to have something to share from that soon.
Aside from that, I've been keeping busy at work - I recently wrote a blog post on their website about one of the bigger projects I was a part of over the Summer - you can check that out here.
Over the summer is Clear Creek Community Theatre's summer program, as well as their annual production of a Shakespeare play. This year it was Macbeth, again directed by my brother Robert Meek. The show was fantastic, and I recorded a few key/popular scenes that I plan to edit soon and be able to share with everyone.
I also made an awesome teaser trailer for that show - check it out below:

So lets jump in - NAB is now long behind us, and as usual I jumped right into something new as soon as I was back in town.

Sometimes simple is better than complex or even "over-produced", in today's blog post I'm going to break down what went into teaser trailer I made for Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. So if you haven't seen it yet - check it out:
Pretty cool right? Sure its not "amazing" by any means, but its eye catching, and it gets your attention. And I made the whole thing in Adobe After Effects in about an hour - it was pretty simple - let me show you:
