I produced this piece for a class at UC Berkeley’s Journalism School. I shot most of it myself, and got help from classmates with the stand-ups and some of the interviews. Soon after I started shooting, the New York Times ran the story on the front page.
Raquel Maria Dillon is a journalist with a decade of reporting and writing experience. She combines the speed and accuracy of the wire with public radio storytelling sensibilities and the fearlessness of a veteran visual journalist.
Her technical skills and writing voice have been honed by hourly deadlines and daily field reporting. She has an innate sense of what makes a good story, in video, words, sound, or whatever comes next.
This is a sample of her work.
