NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC STUDENT EXPEDITIONS - ALASKA 2018
In the summer of 2018, I was incredibly fortunate to co-lead a National Geographic Student Expeditions (NGSE) trip in Alaska. NGSE offers photo and video-oriented programs for High School and Middle School students worldwide. Hired as the video-focused trip leader, my role was to provide guidance and support to six students from various parts of the US and China who were interested in producing some form of video for their final “on assignment” project. One of the videos we put together as a group was Clap, a summary video of our trip through this amazing state.
ECOLOGICAL FARMERS ASSOCIATION OF ONTARIO
The Ecological Farmers Association of Ontario's (EFAO) Farmer-led Research Program - Canada’s first of its kind - helps cultivate the curiosity of farmers to help them to build resilient ecological farms. I was hired as a cameraman to document various farmer-led research projects around Ontario.
THE HONEY BEE RESEARCH CENTRE
In light of "Colony Collapse Disorder" (the general decline in honey bee populations across the Western world), in addition to the growing demand for utilizing local food systems, there has been a growing interest in bee keeping in rural and urban areas. The University of Guelph's Honey Bee Research Centre realizes this interest, and with my help has produced over 30 "how-to" videos for beginner and experienced bee keepers.
OXFAM'S 'UP FOR DEBATE' CAMPAIGN
As the Canadian federal election was underway in 2015, certain issues relating to women's rights were not being discussed. Oxfam's 'Up for Debate' campaign was a nation-wide movement for gender equality, and a call for all political parties to make meaningful commitments to improve the lives of women.
PRACTICAL FARMERS OF ONTARIO - JOEL SALATIN
Practical Farmers of Ontario (PFO) is an organization that promotes family farms and consumers who wish to support family farms in Ontario. Joel Salatin, an american farmer, lecturer, and author, was hosted by PFO in the fall of 2014. He spoke about innovative, unconventional, and practical ways that farmers can succeed in local food systems and continue with the small-scale family approach.
CANADA ISRAEL EXPERIENCE
This video was created after a trip on the Canada Israel Experience. It captures some incredible landscapes and wonders that the Middle Eastern country holds. The mix of video edits and music synchronization adds to an exciting sneak peek for both the trip and the country.
