Serving on an Advisory Panel for Patients/Consumers & other Stakeholders

I shot and edited this eight-video series for Consumers United for Evidence-Based Healthcare to explore the issues that arise when patients (consumers) are asked to work with researchers, specialists and other clinicians to improve the guidelines that aim to give us all better healthcare. We worked quickly at a conference in Washington DC to capture both the provider and the patient perspective. They had also asked me to take event photos and I ended up using them for transitions in the edit.

New York City Immigration Coalition Gala 2016

For three years I have created gala videos for the New York Immigration Coalition. Their organization keeps growing each year, expanding their programs and making a difference for immigrants in this state. My role in the project is to help shape a coherent message out of many achievements and goals. We always shoot a lot of material and have only a short time edit it down to a very contained running time. For this gala year I also shot and edited four additional short videos for honorees at the event.

Cochrane Making a Difference Series

This video is the first in a new Cochrane Making a Difference Series. We shot them on location at an international conference in Vienna. I worked with the client to create messages about the impact their health research evidence has on people, practice or policy.  This story highlights the important work of Cochrane Canada. Croup, especially severe croup, can be a terrible experience for children and parents, but this video looks at a creative approach to educating parents on what to do. The Canadian team was very charming to work with and their story was compelling.

Our own Soup Kitchen Community

I was honored when Trinity's Services and Food for the Homeless asked me to create this video series for them. The dedication of the volunteers and staff really impressed me on the day I spent shooting there and after as I worked the material. They used this video and four others in an online fundraising campaign that exceeded their goal. It’s great that they will be able to continue and expand the services they offer.

Excerpt from New York State Hepatitis C Testing Law

This excerpt is from a video designed to inform New York State healthcare providers about a new law requiring patients who are baby boomers to be offered a Hepatitis C screening test. Over three million people in the United States are living with Hepatitis C and 75% are unaware they are infected. Baby boomers are five times more likely to be infected than the general population. The passion of the main talent, Dr. Perumalswami, on this issue comes through in her delivery. The two actors in the simulation were a breeze to work with and the crew was outstanding that day. To see the entire video presentation visit the CEI training page.

NIIC, Immigrants and the Economy

The last video in the series I created promoting the National Immigrant Integration Conference that was held in Brooklyn. This one focuses on the enormous contribution that immigrants make to the New York and national economy, especially through small businesses. Also, if you visit the LES (Lower East Side), you should check out Kottu House - it's tasty!
