Natural Sound Packages

These are the pieces I’ve created for the news videography courses I took with Bethany Swain. “Natural sound packages” simply means that there’s no narration over the piece.

Daniel Oyefusi is #MerrillMade

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. (Update 6/8/2020: This was also included in the Fall 2020 orientation for Merrill College)

Maris and I chose to follow Daniel Oyefusi as he covered the Maryland state legislature.

A Walk With Denise

Project: This was the first full natural sound piece, with the assignment being a simple profile.

Susannah and I spoke to Denise McHugh about how the chapel’s meditation labrynth works.

Partner: Susannah Outhier

Denise McHugh, the coordinator at the Memorial Chapel, talks about the power she finds in mindfulness and connecting with nature.


The Beeping Easter Eggs of Harford County

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.


Saverna Park Model Railroad Club

Project: This was the winter break assignment for the advanced video storytelling course I took with Bethany, with the goal being just to shoot a simple package for practice.

I went to visit a model railroad club to find out how the hobby is drawing in people of all ages.

The Model Railroad Club has been around since 1964, and its layout mirrors Maryland using both real and fictitious elements.
