My reel is a compilation of three different types of work I’ve made. The first is “The Fastest Six Year Old,” which won the 2014 Edward R. Murrow Award for Best Video Feature Reporting in Large Market Television Region 11. The story profiles Kayla, a six year old little girl, who has a passion for straight and dirt track motocross racing. I shot this with my reporter, Jason Bristol, while working at WHP CBS 21 News.
The second is “Coffee.” A short comedy about two people who are interested in one another but for own personal reasons can’t talk to each other. This was created and entered in Vidjam’s 48 Hour Film Making Competition. The requirements were to incorporate the theme “Make it Count” and have a time limit of 4-8 minutes in length. Along with Ashleigh Valentina Pollart and Kevin Hillman, we wrote, organized, shot, and edited this short film in two days. This won me the award for best director out of 5 other films.
The last in my composition is a short documentary called “The Groomer.” I made and entered it for the My Rode Reel short film competition. It is a short documentary on my father whose love for dogs has brought him from England to America.
