Audubon's Christmas Bird Count
This short film about the National Audubon Society's annual Christmas Bird Count describes the count's history, present day extent, and lessons learned from more than 100 years of data.
In addition to directing, producing, shooting and editing this film, I enjoyed working with the Prelinger Archives to include found footage of historic fashions and flexing my muscles as a Foley artist to create some of the film's background sounds.
Length: ~4.5 minutes. Watch Audubon's Christmas Bird Count.
Hurricane Irene made landfall in North Carolina on August 27, 2011. Though classified as only a category 1 hurricane, the storm washed out Highway 12 in two areas on Hatteras Island stranding more than 2500 people. Travel to coastal North Carolina to see some of these changes and hear varying local views on sea level rise and climate change.
In addition to directing, producing and editing this film, I especially enjoyed shooting it since I had never been to North Carolina's Outer Banks and the scentery was quite beautiful despite the destruction Irene had caused.
Length: ~8.5 minutes. Watch Stilts.
