Entertainment Tech: Video
In high school, I attended a performing arts program where I majored in Film Production. I loved learning about storytelling, camera work, and editing over the years, and I have even taken some film and photography courses in college as a result. Over the years, I have created a number of short films. Among them are:
"You Never Know" - Official Pick at the All American High School Film Festival
"Daytime Summit" - Winner of the All American High School Film Festival Invitational
"Something Special" - Best Comedy at the New Jersey High School Film Festival
"Castle Park" - Best Editing at the Derek Freese Film Festival
This was a collaborative project with the dance department. We went to film at the Grounds for Sculpture, and a friend of mine in the music program composed an original song for me to edit it to.
This was made as part of a 'Weird NJ' assignment. We were tasked with finding a local urban legend and bringing it to life. We were also inspired by the Blair Witch Project for the style. I acted as writer and actress.
Do I Wanna Know
This video was made for a music video assignment. I was the main actress for this video, but I also helped with cinematography. Specifically, we experimented with location and props for this video.
This is probably the weirdest video I've done to date. It's a romantic comedy about a French astronomer that falls in love with the moon. That's me in my 'French' outfit, and we also got to experiment with a green screen.
You Never Know
A documentary about school shootings. We interviewed students from the school about their thoughts on the current climate of our school and gun safety. I acted as the director and editor for this project.
Created for the NJ High School Film Festival. We were given a title, character name, and prop and had to make a video in 5 days based on that. I acted as the writer and director of this project. We won 'Best Comedy' at the festival.
Created for the very first All American High School Film Festival Invitational. Over the course of 3 days we filmed and edited our film in NYC. We ended up winning!
This video was for a project in making a noir film. One of the bigger projects I've worked on, I acted as director and editor. We worked with students in the acting program to gain experience directing.
