My name is Jon Brown and I make media. My career has been a mix of both on staff and freelance, for-profit and non-profit. Here are some broad strokes:
KQED (San Francisco's PBS/NPR Affiliate) - Interactive Media Producer for Arts Education | Produced, shot, edited, animated short-form documentaries on artists and art practice | Won an Emmy for craft achievement.
Instructables.com (Autodesk Inc.) - Media Producer | Over a hundred videos published | Tens of millions of views, building subscriber base 6X.
ModCloth.com - Creative video team manager | Helped to build online video strategy from the ground up | Hundreds of videos published.
VR/360 Video: I was a part of a team of producers at KQED exploring and experimenting with VR technologies. This process has given me experience with a variety of camera systems, post-production tools and theories as to how to make use of this spherical medium.
In my portfolio, you can see that I have experience directing, shooting, editing, producing, animating and consulting. Some projects I’ll do all of the above, other projects I’ll do one of the above.
