Wavelength Lighting: What we do

Sometimes you need a side-hustle!

Here is a video I shot and edited for the LED company Wavelength Lighting

 

Emmy Nomination!

Very excited to learn this week that a piece I worked on with Jason Maloney and Kira Kay for PBS Newshour, In Senegal, thousands of young boys forced into begging system for Koranic study, was nominated for an Emmy award in the category of Outstanding Feature Story in a Regularly Scheduled Newscast.

Getting the opportunity to work with Jason and Kira, who also run the Bureau for International Reporting, was my first real experience shooting video in the field and I’m so grateful for the chance to work with them and the other NYU students who were part of making it, Makini Brice, Contessa Gayles, Ali Withers, Elizabeth Flock and Mel Bailey!

Video News: We are Fusion Doc Finalists!

In October I participated in the Fusion Documentary Challenge with three other NYU students: the wonderful Ali Withers, Rongfei Guo, and John Zongmin Chow. The talented Giacomo Lamparelli composed our music.

So what’s the challenge? They give you a theme, a genre and five days – Go!

Today, we learned that our film, “WHAT IF” is one of the top 12 finalists! This means it will screen at the Slamdance Film Festival in January and The Big Sky Documentary Film Festival in February. Also, it will get a licensing deal across Fusion broadcast and digital platforms.

It won’t be online until March, but we should have a trailer up soon.  Hint – our theme was “I’ve got a baaad feeling,” and the genre was “First person documentary.”
