VIDEO PRODUCTION HAS LONG BEEN A FAVORITE ACTIVITY OF MINE
From storyboarding, to scripting, to set dressing, shot direction, light rigging, handheld, tripod and rig shooting, all the way to editing, and animating - the cinematic process is one that I've now worked professionally in for 6 years.
When I was at Charity USA (AKA Greater Good & later Great Life Publishing) I managed the team that produced recipe videos. We got started soon after Facebook began to promote video reach and engagement heavily, so we saw quite the spike in viewership and fans. It was quite fun, exciting, and of course, delicious :)
Also at Greater Good, we produced these two documentaries about feline friends reached millions. Mr. Pickles received critical acclaim, as it was included in the 2016 SIFF 1Reel Film Festival at Bumbershoot. And the story was included in Oprah Kids magazine. And From Feral to Farm inspired action around the U.S.A. as it drove many shelters to replicate the program.
Before Greater Good, from 2011-2014 I worked in a few partnerships and often independently. In collaboration with photographers, designers, animators, and talent - I filmed, edited, designed, animated, and directed aspects in every single piece.
