CCT PROgram

Georgetown university - Washington, DC

This is a short documentary film about Ojas Patel and his search for meaning. It involved multiple off-camera interviews to get to know Patel and get a feel for the general story. We then met several times over a few months for long interviews in his home, a production studio, and in his neighborhood. The music heard throughout the film was performed by Patel himself.

This video was filmed by a team (including myself) and edited by me. The video is to commemorate the University of Georgetown Graduate School’s Communication, Culture & Technology program’s 20th anniversary weekend.

 

Mangrove Action Project

Southern Thailand

This is an informational video for the Mangrove Action Project (MAP). Their Thailand location is located in the southern provence of Trang, and they operate throughout the country, predominantly in the south. I filmed various projects and locations with the staff and interviewed several community members, such as women volunteering in the communities, foreign volunteer groups, and community leaders. The majority of the footage was handed over to the organization to translate and use as they wished, while this video was created by using some of the highlights of the month I spent with MAP.
