How Does HIV/AIDS End?

New York Ideas Festival 2015 – Sizzle Reel

Standard

My biggest fear leaving SMPA with my degree was that their theoretical approach to media would leave me without any leverage in an increasingly skills-focused workforce.

Last week, I slapped together a small reel for our sponsors.  My manager was shocked that I knew my way around Premiere and asked me to make a sizzle reel for our upcoming New York Ideas Festival.  This is that video.

I came back to school to learn how to shoot and edit video.  The theory and academia of graduate school is great, but nothing beats tangible skills.

This is the first video I ever shot and produced.  I was a one man production team, setting up long shots from a tripod and praying no one would steal my equipment while I ran in and out of the frame.
