video journalism & interviews
My specialty is creating an emotional story with engaging interviews. My video packages capture the who, why, how, and where of the story in succinct segments that are ideal for web & social media distribution. I’ve interviewed children and adults all over the world in English, Spanish, German, Dutch, French, Portuguese, Turkish, Arabic…even Mayan, and have considerable experience in remote locations. My video productions are shot in a documentary film-style with post-production cinema effects. Most importantly, I can distribute the final cut to a relevant global audience through a strategic social media campaign. There is a contact form at the bottom of this page.
