Class of 2025 A short fundraising piece that poses the question, will the university be ready for the demands of the next generation of students? Originally screened at a board of trustees meeting. The CASE organization named it 2015's best higher-ed fundraising video, awarding it the Grand Gold award in their international competition. DoP, Color Grade Northeastern University 3min
Torch@10 A half hour documentary featuring 5 recipients of NU's Torch Scholarship. Each subject is at a different stage of life, so we are able to follow the story of a Toch scholar from childhood, through the application process, freshman year, a semester abroad, graduation, first job, then finally, marriage and kids. It was an ambitious project, filmed over the course of 12 months and originally screened at Torch's 10 year anniversary celebration. We're searching for potential broadcast opportunities, so the video isn't available online. Concept, DoP, Color Grade, Co-Editor Northeastern University 24min
Extra Credit An educational Youtube channel that I describe as a mashup of PBS Digital Studios, Radiolab, and office hours with your favorite professor. The goal of the series is to engage with young alunni on social media in a way that doesn't feel forced or phony. There are lots of popular educational Youtube channels, but universities are innexplicably absent. I fell into the hosting slot accidentally, but it's started to grow on me. The first episode is scheduled to premiere this september. Everything (except animation) Northeastern University 5min
Grand Slam Baseball A short marketing piece I shot over the course of a week in India. It features a Northeastern student who started an American baseball league in New Dehli. I loved traveling to shoot and hope to do it more in the future. Everything Northeastern University 5min
Artist Vignettes A series of 3 mini-docs that ended up being more like cinematography exercises than actual stories. The subjects include a landscape painter, a custom cymbal maker, and a large format photographer. The painting piece won a video contest hosted by Dinotopia creator, James Gurney. He called it the most beautiful video about painting he'd ever seen. Everything NA 3min
Video for Colleges Podcast A podcast I co-host with my boss, Joe Case. We interview university video producers from schools all over the country. The show has attracted dozens of listeners. I also designed the website. Co-Host, Engineer, Brand Design Video for Colleges 45min
Ambassador Aoun From time to time we're tasked with silly marketing videos featuring Northeastern's president. This time he's giving a campus tour, but there's actually a comedian feeding him lines through a hidden earpiece. The production was a technical feat, with 5 cameras, multiple audio feeds, hidden earpieces, and no re-takes. DoP, Co-Editor Northeastern University 4min
Music A selection of musical recordings I've done over the years with various artists. Drums NA 45min
Production Documents I spent a long time searching the web for a simple, well designed call sheet, but they were all either a hodge podge of information, or overkill for NU's small productions. I swapped out the complex spreadsheet for a simple Google Doc. Feel free to use it for your own productions. Select "File ---> Make a Copy" to save a version for yourself. I also created this concept brief to help organize my team's thoughts during pre-production. Everything Video for Colleges NA
