Learning to Share

client: Colorful Mamas of the 99%

role: field producer, cinematographer, location sound, editor

I was contacted by the Colorful Mamas of the 99% to cover their planned action at Wells Fargo during Occupy Oakland. Aside from their activism, many Mamas were teachers, journalists and community organizers so were quite media savvy; they wanted a video to ensure the lessons of the day would be shared with more than just their children.

A look into the production of a writing & performance project by teen moms in San Francisco.

I photographed classroom activities (still and motion) and conducted the interviews of students with the assistance of teaching artist Annie Rovzar, who I later interviewed. Performance footage, theater b-roll and theater interviews were provided by the American Conservatory Theater.

Parkour Asian America

role: producer, cinematographer, location sound, editor, still photographer

Entering the world of parkour in the SF Bay Area though the perspectives of four different Asian American tracers.

I worked with the writer to conduct interviews, shoot action video as well as still photos for print and web. Being one of my first video projects, I found the difficulties of location sound to be an opportunity to learn post-production audio techniques.

One of a series of short web videos exploring the practice of shabbat in modern life.

I worked with a producer who conducted the interviews. In addition to the interview and b-roll for this video, I also shot the clips used in the Ten Principles section, most of which were drawn from other videos in the series.
