I really like making my own videos and experimenting with special effects.  The following are a few things I've done for fun.

"The Value Of Sleep For Creatives" is a short exercise I did to experiment with pre-composed animation, easing, blurs, overshoots, anticipation, and camera manipulation. 
Playstation logo animation with particle effect.
Coca-Cola logo animation with liquid effect.
In celebration of an unprecedented fourth straight head-to-head match up in the Finals between the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers!
