Helping Those In Need

Stories like this make coming to work a happy occasion.  Regina Valdez, a current MCCP volunteer and former beneficiary, explains how care through MCCP changed her life when she was a child. She also shares how she sees first-hand that dental care can change children’s lives in her current role as a dental office manager. Since MCCP was initiated in 1986, the program has provided medical and dental care to more than 75,000 Fairfax County children.

New Beginnings For Baltimore

I am so happy that I get to work on stories like this.  My executive producer gave Troy, the co-owner of New Beginnings, a sneak peak of the show and he gave us the highest praise I can think of….he said we got it right.  It feels right.

I’m the proud editor of this video.

Park Heights Renaissance Wins Telly

This short film was produced by the Kaiser Permanente Mid-Atlantic Creative Team, lead by Executive Producer Bryan Litt, to document the ambitious collaboration between this Park Heights Neighborhood and the Kaiser Permanente Community Benefit team to restore a community park.

In the words of our social media guru:

Improving health — a core element of Kaiser Permanente’s mission — is about more than providing high-quality health care. Just as we know that preventive care, such as getting the appropriate vaccinations and screenings, is critical to staying healthy, we know that where we live, work and play has a crucial role in achieving total health. Watch the story of a West Baltimore community’s effort to create a safe space for their neighborhood to be active and healthy. It is just one example of many decades of Kaiser Permanente’s work to help communities across the country be healthy and thrive.

I had the privilege of being the editor for this Telly Award winning short and the other films in this series.

While you are here, I invite you to check out the companion videos that highlight different facets of this inspiring story:

“Watching and Waiting” Wins TIVA Peer Award

This show was produced by Hillmann & Carr for the Oklahoma City Memorial & Museum.   We used a combination of first person testimony and archival news footage to tell the story of how Oklahoma and rescuers from across the nation responded to the attack on the Murrah Building in 1995.

I was the editor for this film.  It previously won a Bronze Telly, and this weekend was the winner of the TIVA Peer Awards Bronze for Editing.  What makes this impressive is that this show was cut on Avid, which is more like a torture device than an editing package.

Press Coverage of Oklahoma City Memorial Media

On September 14 of this year the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum unveiled a lot of new media, much of it produced by me and my friends at Hillmann & Carr.  Read about it here and here.  In one of the links below, you’ll see a vertical monitor on a column near Timothy McVeigh’s car.  That’s one way of solving the vertical monitor problem.

Interactive Design with Birthplace of Country Music

It’s been quite rewarding to work with Hillmann & Carr and Brightline Interactive to make the museum a reality.  This has been a long project.  I love seeing the early creative treatments that I wrote under the direction of our creative director Jennifer Gruber evolve and become real videos and interactives.  I look forward to seeing the interactive experiences my colleagues and I have designed come to life.  See you at the grand opening!
