Video package | Varsity crew team

St. Thomas varsity crew team rows into spring season.

This video package was probably the most adventurous story I have undertaken for TommieMedia. Since I was still learning video (and was shooting it with a DSLR for the first time), our video editor Katherine Curtis came along with me. We braved wind, rain, and a very early morning to get these shots, but I was really happy with the way it turned out! I also designed the above rotator for my package.

Rotator | Seminar on relationships

Campus seminar discusses what makes happy relationships.

This was my first bit of design work for TommieMedia. Rotators are the images in the top right-hand side of our homepage that tease our latest stories. I made this one for studio producer Carly Samuelson’s story on a seminar on relationships that was lead by professor and author of “What Happy Couples Do,” Dr. Carol Bruess.

Opinion | ‘Life lesson’ classes

The other part of your college education.

Nearly three semesters into my college career, I realized that the classes I have thus far appreciated the most are the ones that perhaps required a little more work, but taught me life lessons besides just academics. My opinions piece is about how students should search out these classes and make an effort to enrich their college experience.

Video package | Tommie Spotlight

Tommie Spotlight: Sarah Smith.

Even though my first video experience was shooting b-roll for the Locker Room, this one was my first video package! Tommie Spotlight is a feature TommieMedia does to highlight student athletes, and for this one, it was senior and basketball center player Sarah Smith. I actually knew her before this story was assigned – she’s a sweetheart.

Audio slideshow | Spring musical

Local students perform in St. Kate’s ‘The Pirates of Penzance.’

This slideshow holds pictures from what was definitely one of my favorite stories to shoot for TommieMedia. There was so much color and action onstage that the only time I put down the camera was to start and stop the audio recorder. I was happy that TommieMedia produced more audio slideshows this semester – I think the audio aspect made the stories much more engaging.

Full coverage | Student creates service

Senior creates job with service-based software.

This story featured senior Solome Tibebu, who is the founder of Cognific, a service-based software that will offer mental health “homework” in a gaming format for young adult patients, as well as an analytics platform for psychotherapists. I absolutely loved working on this story – Solome was very genuine and pleasant to talk to, and I think what she’s doing is amazing.

The Locker Room | Swimming

The Locker Room with Tom Hodgson – March 1, 2012.

This was my first time ever hosting the Locker Room, a sports talk show where TommieMedia brings in coaches and players to talk about the season and upcoming games/meets. I got to interview swim coach Tom Hodgson and high achievers Emily Punyko and Sam Rauchwarter. It was also my first time using a real camera (and not just a flip cam) to shoot b-roll (the footage of the swimmers in this segment)! I was happy to finally try my hand at that.
