The links and descriptions below are different works I have produced during my time in the television and radio broadcasting industry.
- “Crossfit Tier 1 holds annual crossfit competition, raises thousands for charity“: This project showed me that when you take control of the situation you can produce a great product. A good NAT PAK, like this one, does a great job of not only informing but showing emotion in why that information is important.
- “Make it Monday: DIY glitter ornaments”: I had the pleasure of shooting this segment with a colleague at WNCT. It was a DIY segment shown on, you guessed it, Mondays. The anchor that fronted it also wrote it while I shot and edited it. These segments were different from your day to day news and I think that was why I enjoyed working on them so much. A lot of the shots in these segments were similar. Coming up with transitions was a strategic way to get through it without a lot of jump cuts.
- “Seventeenth annual canine crawl”: This project in particular was a natural sound package or as others may know it, a NAT PAK. I have always felt that it is my job to tell the facts as a journalist in how I write my story and let my sound bites show the emotion. Being able to tell facts through sound bites only shows more of that raw emotion and invites the viewer to get involved.
- “Battle of the Brook“: A member of my cohort came to me about doing a documentary on the declining population of the native brook trout in Western North Carolina. It was an opportunity to mix my passion for fishing and story telling into on thing. I worked as a producer and photographer on this project with three other people and a faculty advisor from Western Carolina University. This film was submitted to the Broadcast Education Association Film Festival of 2017.
- “USA Cares: Boots in the Bluegrass“: USA Cares is a company dedicated to providing immediate cash to veterans in need. This video is based around one of the fundraisers they do annually. I was assigned to edit the footage for this video while doing my internship at Drift Media Productions. I worked directly with the client over the phone and through email to create a product that he not only liked, but USA Cares as a whole liked. I worked on other edits with USA Cares after this one.
- “Western Carolina University Bass Cats Promo“: Shooting video from a boat was a new experience for me. The final product that came out was better than what I thought it was going to be. It taught to have more confidence in my abilities.
