Joey is an expert in all things video and motion graphics. When a client comes to HS looking to make an impact on a visual platform, it’s up to Joey to bring their vision to life and exceed their expectations.
But how exactly does Joey work on visual storytelling, and what is his creative process like? To find out, we asked him a few questions to dig deeper into all things video.
What is a day in the life of Joey Schultz like?
Snooze bar. Snooze bar. Snooze bar. Get dressed. Go to the office. Coffee. Coffee. Coffee. Get to work. Typically, after work I will take my dog, Bart, and maybe my cat, Harai, for a walk or an adventure. Or, I go to Judo class on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday. Later in the night, I generally work on something or hang out with my wife, rather than watching TV (I do watch a bit of TV though). I’m rewatching Dexter at the moment. Right now, I am working on a second strategy guide for the game Hive. I usually call it a night around 10:30.
How does a video help a client?
Moving pictures are better than regular pictures.
I think what video does for a client is help them communicate with their would be customers. Video can provide information that is useful for a client’s customers in a tricky way–people don’t like to read or take time to do anything, so a video is a nice way to entice someone into learning the desired info. They won’t read, but they may watch/listen.
What do you love about making motion graphics?
Well, the feeling about making something that is “right” and helpful, is a good one. But really, after I get to make motion graphics, design work, copy editing, or anything similar for clients, I get to use my skills to create what I want for myself. For example, I want to produce a strategy guide… So I do it.
What is the most rewarding part of your job?
But also, having some sort of responsibility weighs well on a fella’s livelihood…and knowing that some clients and coworkers are truly grateful for what I can produce.
If you were a tile from Hive, which one would you be?
I’d be a new piece called insecticide. Like rock, paper, scissors, but insecticide always wins.
