A Weekend of New Beginnings

Posted on July 29th, 2015 · Posted in production log

MOULTON, AL – On June 30, acting at the request of local law enforcement, the ASPCA assisted in the rescue and removal of 300 dogs and cats from a neglectful animal shelter in Moulton, Alabama. Now, nearly one month later, we are thrilled to announce that the majority of the rescued animals are happily in forever homes. Some were reunited with loving families in the weeks following the raid, while approximately 250 others were placed up for adoption at an ASPCA adoption event in Hillsboro, Alabama, on July 25 and 26. At the event, more than 900 people from Alabama, Tennessee, Georgia and the surrounding areas came to show their support—and 202 dogs and cats were adopted! *I produced, filmed, wrote, and edited this video for the ASPCA.

2015 ASPCA Calendar Videos

Posted on November 29th, 2014 · Posted in production log

NEW YORK CITY — After a successful test-run in 2014, the ASPCA re-assigned me the task of producing a behind-the-scenes video series about the making of their 2015 calendar. The calendar is a yearly gift to qualifying ASPCA donors and features the stories of the organizations employees and their adopted pets. The videos supplement the calendar’s online presences, which includes additional photos and stories. They are also used to market the calendar, for fundraising, and to spread the message about animal adoption. I produced the series as a one-man-band (producer, shooter, editor). I operated the camera, recorded the audio, conducted the interviews, and edited for all of these productions. The gear I used included: Canon XF-305 camera, Sennheiser shotgun and lavaliere microphones, and the videos were edited in Adobe Premiere CS6. All of the videos that I produced for the 2015 calendar are embedded below. I hope you enjoy them!

Life on a Chain

NEW YORK CITY — Dog fighting is one of the gravest and most violent forms of animal cruelty imaginable. It is for this reason that dog fighting is a felony in all 50 states. This video gives an in-depth look at the issue of dog fighting in America, the impact it has on the innocent lives of the dogs and the efforts of the ASPCA to combat dog fighting and rescue the dogs trapped in this vicious blood spot. *I directed, produced, filmed, and edited this video for the ASPCA.
