I had the great pleasure of doing some freelance work for healthycal.org, a website started by veteran reporter Daniel Weintraub that focuses on informing Californians about public health issues throughout the state. The following are the video stories I produced for the site. With each story, I tried to incorporate different techniques I had been learning at the time.
In the first video, for example, I started off the story by fading out of a blur to reflect what many people in Richmond wake up to see every morning: a constant plume of smoke coming from the Chevron plant. In the second video, I overlapped several sets of B-roll to compliment what the speaker was saying about population growth.
And in the third video, I experimented with Motion to make use of a map I created to relate to the subject of the story: “mapping” out Richmond’s health and wellness plan. I was also able to infuse some of my own style into each story by using subtle hip hop tracks to compliment the mood in each story.
