Reflections: Looking back at some of my favorite media projects

Here’s a roundup of some of my past video projects that continue to inspire me.

1. “Paris Squat: 59 Rivoli Tour” is part of a series of videos from artist AM aka Alice Mizrachi‘s artist residency in Paris in the fall of 2010. I documented her residency for 30 days, which resulted in a multimedia narrative at grrrlweinparis.tumblr.com and coverage on street art websites.

This footage will be part of a transmedia project that is in development.

2. “It Takes The Hood To Save The Hood!” is a mini documentary made possible by Phipps Community Development Corporation. Students from the Phipps West Farms Teen Program participated in the production. The people in this video are real and are sharing stories of the loved ones they lost to gun violence.

Special Thanks to Gloria Cruz for fighting everyday to bring about change in our communities.

3. “‘Afro-Punk’ Is What You Make It” is a video that was part of my coverage of the Afro-Punk community for MTV News. I made friends within the community and with the founders to ensure that the video accurately reflected the documentary and festival’s history.
