One of the journalism skills I have had the most fun developing is that of video production. I absolutely love making videos to accompany articles or as stand alone pieces. Here is a sampling of some of my work.
Most of my video time at the Patriot-News and at PennLive.com has me in front of the camera, rather than behind it. Here are a few of the videos on PennLive.com that feature me.
In order to gain video experience I created Richmond TV, the online news program for Richmond, the American International University in London. Episodes were published on YouTube and some reached more than one hundred percent of our targeted audience. RTV was made with the assistance of more than 30 students and a core staff of four. Here are a few videos from the show.
RTV Special – Graduation 2010
RTV Special – 1953
In April 2010 the university performed “1953″ by Craig Raine. This alternative history drama is an adaptation of “Andromache” by Jean Rachine. In this tale, the Axis powers won World War II presenting a world very different from the one we know today. Naturally, it’s a tragedy. RTV did a special behind-the-scenes look at the show.
RTV Episode 6
This is a typical episode of Richmond TV, featuring our traditional four story structure: a piece on residence life, club activities, administrative news/opinions, student highlight and travel segment.
Part of the graduation requirements for Richmond is doing a senior project. I chose to do a video for INS, Integrated Neurological Services, a charity near my school which helps those who are suffering the after effects of a stroke and those who have Parkinson’s disease and MS. I did the interviews, filmed the subjects and edited the footage. INS uses the video for promotional and educational purposes. For more information on INS visit their website.
Greener-upon-Thames contacted me to help them shoot three promotional videos for their plastic-bag free Olympics campaign.
