Fundraising Trailer Editing
Editing services to create a fundraising trailer for a documentary on Alzheimers
I edited a trailer to assist with fundraising for a documentary by filmmaker Dawn Green which tells an autobiographical story about the effect of Alzheimer’s disease on her life. The trailer helped her raise over 8,000 dollars in an IndieGoGo campaign and helped secure in-kind donated support from the Cardozo Indie Film Law Clinic. The film, Sheltering Love, is still currently in early production and development. You can learn more at shelteringlovefilm.com.

Cold case podcast: California cop talks murder and mystery
A branded podcast feature for Amazon Studios
While writing the core program for the branded series How to Solve a Murder created for Amazon Studios Bosch, it came to my attention that we had every interview used in the research digitally recorded. Pitching the podcast as a 'bonus' piece of content to the client, I worked with the branded edit team to compile a story out of the raw interview audio and record voiceover in a style inspired by the true-crime podcast Serial. The result was the piece here, which became an key portfolio piece in selling new branded podcast projects to future clients.
Storyful Promo Reels
Promotional video to advertise viral video verticals for Storyful
Storyful wanted a better way to advertise their vast library of licensable video content to news and entertainment producers. After analyzing and choosing the strongest subject verticals in their library, I created, edited, and published several reels that looked at the best clips available in sports, baby, animals, and weather subject matter. Utilizing Creative Commons music to eliminate external costs, these videos gave the company strong advertising collateral on a minimal budget.

I produced an original clip, writing a series of questions to answer on film and using b-roll from Allen's films that had already been cleared for the documentary broadcast. The clip was distributed online to promote the airdate and as a DVD extra with the feature length film. See clip below:
