My name is Joanne Smith and I've lived in Maine for most of my life. As the years go by, I can't imagine living anywhere else. During the last year as a student at Southern Maine Community College, I've discovered my passion for visual storytelling.
I want to combine photography, video and animation to tell stories that promote the professional and personal opportunities that make Maine a special place to work, live and play.
This portfolio reflects a body of work that includes motion graphics animations and video projects using Adobe Photoshop, After Effects and Premiere Pro, as well as photography from my favorite locations around the state.
I hope to work with businesses and individuals who share my passion for the place I live and have stories that I can help them tell about their experiences and opportunities.
This work is important to me because these are the kinds of stories I've wanted to tell for a long time and I believe that my best work is ahead of me.
