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.
Partner: Maris Medina
First, meet Daniel Oyefusi. He's reporting in the Maryland State House this semester for @CNSmd. (Produced by Maris Medina '20 & Lancelot Lin '21)

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
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
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.
