Second Pandora Machinima

[PRODUCER, VIDEOGRAPHER, EDITOR]

Here is a machinima promo video about the wondrous beauty and danger of the Pandora sims in Second life.

MIAB (MOSES in a Box)

[PRODUCER, VIDEOGRAPHER, EDITOR]
I produced this machinima to highlight the MOSES OpenSim virtual environment that the U.S. Army’s Research, Development and Engineering Command (RDECOM) has been working with open source developers to provide as a complete turn-key solution which can be hosted on virtual drives to provide an environment for distributed training, simulation, and collaboration.

HAITI: Operation New Horizons

[PRODUCER, EDITOR, WRITER, VOICE OVER, & TITLES]
This video shows how the U.S. military helped the people of Haiti after a hurricane flooded the town of Gonaives in 2004.  We helped build schools and water wells while providing medical aide and supplies to help the people recover.  Their town was sunk under 20 feet of water and lost most of its utilities (electricity, water, sewage, etc.).  “Project Handclasp” provided relief supplies and foot-pedaled sewing machines, which were given to the Haitians along with a workshop on how to start up their own small business to help the people recover following this natural disaster.

A Light to Haiti

[PRODUCER, EDITOR, WRITER, INTERVIEWER]
Haitian children gathered outside the U.S. camp in Gonaives so that they could use the camp’s lights to illuminate them during the night as they worked on their homework assignments.  Since the town had been flooded by a hurricane, they had no electricity of their own at the time.

Fleet of Tomorrow

[CO-PRODUCER, EDITING ADVISER, U.S. NAVY SUBJECT MATTER EXPERT]
This video was done to highlight some of the technological innovation at Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA).  I worked with a production company and the Navy’s Program Executive Offices (PEOs) to obtain footage and interviews to produce this video about the Navy of the 21st Century.  This includes time lapsed video and 3D simulations and was part of a larger command video we produced.

Winston Churchill Christening

[VIDEOGRAPHER, AUDIO ENGINEER, PRODUCER, EDITOR]
This was the first ever streamed video of a christening of a guided-missile destroyer in the U.S. Navy.  This video was filmed at Bath Iron Works and was also used as part of the ship’s initial website which I developed along with graphic designers from Naval Surface Warfare Center, Dahlgren Devision.

Navy Tugmaster

[VIDEOGRAPHER, AUDIO ENGINEER, PRODUCER, EDITOR, WRITER, VOICE OVER]
This was produced during my days at Navy News This Week to highlight what it takes to bring a large deck ship (like an aircraft carrier or amphibious assault ship) into port in Norfolk, VA)  I used the storyteller approach to allow the people in the story to tell the story.

Relocating the Contras

[VIDEOGRAPHER, AUDIO ENGINEER, PRODUCER, EDITOR, WRITER, VOICE OVER]
I did this story while assigned to Joint Task Force Bravo in Honduras and this highlights “Operation Amigo” in which U.S. forces helped the Contras relocate back to Nicaragua.  This video includes an interview with the Comandante (leader) of the Contras.
