Project: I was approached by director James Currie to film the opening scenes for his feature-length documentary.
Goal: To create an impactful and emotional opening scene to drive home the vulnerability of African Elephants. To communicate this idea we placed a large elephant skull on a rotating turntable. Using dry-ice to recreate the low-lying fog found while filming in Africa, we filmed at night and lit the skull from different angles to produce dramatic shadows.
Result: The film is currently premiering and winning awards at film festivals across the country.
From Saplings to Fruit-Bearing Trees
Project: I was commissioned to create a documentary highlighting the mural Xavier Cortada painted with the students at Prodev Haiti.
Goal: In response to the U.s. Governments’ remarks about the people of Haiti, Conan O’Brien visited Ecole Nouvelle Zoranje, a school for underserved children in Port-au-Prince, to dispel the lies.
To thank Conon, Prodev reached out to artist Xavier Cortada to help them create a mural.
This short documentary shows what happened next.
Result: The film i created was highly applauded by Conan O’brien and is now hosted permanently on his website.
