Additional Information on Roles Held in Submitted Portfolio The submitted portfolio contains two different pieces of work. The rst is an introduction produced to give a personal welcome to the audience and establish my immense feelings toward lm. I scripted the piece and orchestrated the production, including: lights, backdrop and the instruction of both cameramen. After lming was completed, I brought the piece into the editing lab and minimized the hour of footage into 25 short seconds, including the two second handles on either end. The latter piece was crafted this past summer although I just recently sat down to cut it together. I gained knowledge of the documentary's subject through an employee at the Jacob Burns Film Center, a lm school where I have recently attended an excellent documentary class. Since this was the rst documentary I have undertaken so far, the skills I acquired through the class greatly bene ted the nal edit as well as production along the way. Assistance from a friend in conducting interviews allowed me to remain behind camera and uphold the importance of the story being told. While I've carried out countless productions in the past, I feel these two pieces represent my very best work. Please contact me if you have any questions. Thank you.
