This video looks at the use of the film projector in American homes in the 1920s. The interviews of Smithsonian Museum of American History archivists Pamela Wintle (Senior Film Archivist of the National Anthropological Film Collection) and Wendy Shay (Audiovisual Archivist of the Archives Center) provided valuable insight to the project. All shooting, editing, and animations were done by me.

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 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.
