Salt Lake City, Utah USA

Tim grew up in the Midwest, with stops in Iowa, Kansas, and Minnesota before the family headed west to Arizona.

Needing a way to 'vent' some creativity, Tim and a group of buddies began submitting song parodies to KZZP Radio in Phoenix in the late 1980's. After serving a church mission in Mexico City, Tim went on to Brigham Young University to become a television sports anchor. He quickly found out he had the face for radio (as demonstrated,) and the voice for closed-captioning. His focus switched to production behind the camera.

The last thirteen years have included moves to the Boston area, Arizona and Utah. He has been blessed with a couple of Rocky Mountain Emmy Awards (Promotion), a Telly Award (Animation), and Utah Broadcaster Awards.

He currently works for KUTV 2 News (CBS) in Salt Lake City. His main duties are to create motion graphics for station and news promotion, and on-line finishing of promotional spots. The tools in use include After Effects, Photoshop, Lightwave, and VT[3].

He and his wife, Alicia, are the proud parents of five daughters who, thankfully, look like their mom.

Magic Bullet Suite 2008

Tim Johnson takes a thorough look at Magic Bullet Suite 2008 from Red Giant Software. One project at the CBS affiliate he works at called for a variety of different needs and MBS 2008 was able to handle all within the one plugin set: film look, film motion, up-rezzing to HD, color correction, and motion removal.

Class on Demand: Complete Training for Boris Continuum Complete 4

Over the years, some of the most-used After Effects plug-ins on my computer have come from Boris. Recently, Boris Continuum Complete 4.0 came out. Hot on its heels was Class on Demand's latest training on Boris: "Complete Training for Boris Continuum Complete 4," --designed specifically to get people up to speed on those filters. In this article, CreativeCOW's Tim Johnson takes a look at the training and concludes that this training from Class on Demand is a solid training DVD with a couple of nice extras.
