These are the pieces I’ve created for the news videography course I took with Bethany Swain. “Natural sound packages” simply means that there’s no narration over the piece.
Project: The premise of this assignment was to do a “silent story” on an interesting individual within Merrill College of Journalism, with the best pieces to be featured by the college on giving day.

Partner: Susannah Outhier
Project: The final project for this course was more open-ended. Our piece was one of a few about programs put on by Harford County’s therapeutic recreation program.
Joel and I went and shot an Easter egg hunt where the eggs make noise to allow visually-impaired children to participate.
Partner: Joel Ang
This is the first beeping Easter Egg hunt put on by Harford County. It's designed for visually impaired children to take part in, but other children can also experience it using a blindfold.
