Let's Ask (Series)
Let's Ask is a passion project that explores the people of New York City in a emotional, self-analytical way. The idea is simple: I walk up to random strangers and ask them where they're from, and a second - more thought provoking question about themselves. This is Episode 1: Let's Ask: What's Your Most Favorite Thing About Yourself?
I don't incorporate enough animation work into my projects, and that's because it's my weakest skill set. I'm making it my mission this year to change that by teaching myself more After Effects. This was a fun animation project I made during a short hiatus from making content.
My Morning Routine
2018 was off to a slow start, and I needed to make a change if I wanted it to start right. I needed a new morning routine, and so this video is a product of that. Here's a birds eye view of what the beginning of (most of) my days looks like.
IG Shorts (Instagram Series)
Cinnac is a social network, designed as a mini-blog service where users can upload photo 'Sets' — a blog of up to 20 photos. From there, the community can decide which image(s) it likes best by swiping left or right. That way, users can see how the community rated the images. I worked with the Cinnac team in Germany to create promotional Instagram Stories for their account(s).
Cinnac IG Story Campaign
Instagram's Stories has changed the way we consume video content. Everyone now has a smartphone, and so we have to adapt to having vertical video. This is a compilation of IG Shorts - stories that show bits of my life in a vertical format. More compilations can be seen in this YouTube playlist, and I post weekly Shorts on my Instagram: @don.eim.
An Open Letter: To Myself
This is an open letter to myself, a highlight of moments from the first half of 2017 using past videos and unused footage. It was wake-up call for me to start making again, and a reminder to myself of what drives me as a visual creative.
Looking Back (Series)
I learned a lot about myself while growing up with my friends, and we went through similar struggles trying to figure out the whole adult-ing thing. This is the first episode to a series, Looking Back, where I talk with friends and look back at our past selves and experiences in order to see how we got to where we are now.
PRIDE - NYC Pride Parade 2017
The NYC Pride Parade was on June 25th this year, and it was my first time going out to see it. I decided to follow the parade via skateboard, and the whole thing made me feel some type of way.

Happy Endings: Failed Relationships
Relationships are awesome, but not all of them work out. I wanted to know why, so I decided to ask my exes about relationships and why we didn't work out.
Is it weird that it wasn't weird? OK, it was a little weird.
Climbing Buildings, NYC (360° Video)
**Recommended viewing via VR device**
As a journalist, I believe that 360° is the next big step in visual storytelling. This is me testing the Theta S 360° Camera.

House Of The Creative is a platform that connects underground artists such as photographers, models, brands and social media influencers. The goal is to plug in artists for various creative projects and to help brands build their image on social media. I worked with them to create promotional content for their events. This was one of their earlier events, shot at Ludlow Studios, NYC.
