"Who Am I Going To Be?"
My latest video project was a 45 minute documentary titled "Who Am I Going To Be?" exploring the experiences and challenges of teenaged African refugees who were resettled in New Hampshire. The film was an official selection at the 2014 NH Film Festival.
"Who Am I Going To Be?" was a several year project that was significantly funded by the New Hampshire Humanities Council and the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation. I worked on the film with producer Lynn Clowes, who works with immigrant and minority communities in New Hampshire to help them adjust to life in the United States. Bill Rogers, an award winning filmmaker based in Rochester, NH, was brought on to help direct the project.
My role was multifaceted and included the following:
- pre-production (planning / story writing)
- HD video, audio, lighting
- b-roll planning and shooting
- logging and keyword tagging of footage
- editing all cuts of the film: assembly, rough cuts, final cuts
- animation and graphics
- collecting support images and research
- titles and lower thirds
- color correcting
- audio enhancements and balancing

Grande Communications & Atlantic Broadband
I worked with 9 Dot Square in Boston, MA to shoot and edit over forty 30-second TV spots for two cable service providers: Atlantic Broadband on the US east coast, and Grande Communications in Texas.
I shot video footage on location in the markets and then edited the footage to produce testimonials of cable customers praising the services of the companies.
The markets we shot in were:
Altoona and Johnstown, PA
Miami Beach, FL
Austin, Corpus Christi, Dallas, Midland, Odessa, San Antonio, San Marcos, Waco, TX
