Just in time for Easter, I shot and edited this package about a big bunny. It got lots of eyeballs online and on social. Definitely watch to the end! I’m experimenting with formatting text on the screen while also learning Edius. It was so fast and effortless with Final Cut — all muscle memory. Think about an edit, fingers […]
Just started, but not wasting time. This first-person package got mad play online and picked up by NBC affiliates across the country. A quirky presidential primary story for Presidents’ Day – just what the station ordered! And I didn’t fall off the roof. Here’s how NowThis (an NBC News partner) cut it:

I booked, shot and edited this story in one day.
Usually on breaking stories, especially ones about death and destruction, I concentrate on feeding video to producers in DC where my colleagues package it or feed it out to clients. I often don’t have time to voice a package, much less shoot a standup, because they want more, more, better, now! For this story, I filed […]
