For most of his college career, Austin was employed by Rogue Valley Community Television. There he was commissioned to create several commercials and TV spots for clients as well as RVTV's channel blocks and station ID's. For many of the projects Austin was held responsible to write, shoot, and edit with relative creative freedom.
The Southern Oregon University Sustainability commercial is an example of Austin's ability to extend his role within a project as it was conceptualized and executed almost entirely by himself including the storyboard, animation, visual design, as well as a large volume of the photography.
The selected projects have been utilized by Universities, Production Companies, Film Festivals and Television Stations for broadcast and online promotion. Each contain motion graphic elements animated and designed by Austin.
