This project below was edited remotely in a single day in January, 2021, on behalf of the Boston College Women's Summit. As a result of limited media access and funding due to COVID-19, the footage used was shot hand-held on a Sony A7II several years ago during my undergraduate years at Boston College.
This project below was shot and edited in the spring of 2019 on behalf of the Bystander Intervention Education group, part of the Boston College Women's Center. The project was filmed on a Sony A7II during my undergraduate years at Boston College, in which I also participated in this club.
Bystander Intervention is a sexual assault prevention program that focuses on the importance of prosocial bystander behaviors. The program seeks to empower Boston College students to stand up and speak out to prevent instances of rape and sexual assault from occurring.
The video was created to provide Boston College students with information about the mission of the club, as well as to encourage interested students to apply. The interviews were shot in the Boston College Women's Office with an on-camera shotgun microphone. The interviewees were members of the club's leadership team. The b-roll was filmed over the course of a month at various club meetings, presentations, and retreats.
The goal of the video was to underscore the important work Bystander does on campus. The leadership team also recognizes the weight and intensity of a lot of its work. As such, we decided to include the bloopers real at the end of the video to highlight the more relaxed, life-giving side of the club as well.
This project below was shot and edited in the late fall of 2018 on behalf of the Boston College Women's Summit. The footage was captured on a hand-held Sony A7II during my undergraduate years at Boston College.
The video was played at the beginning of the 2019 Boston College Women's Summit. The goal was to energize the attendees at the start of the event by celebrating the incredible women on campus involved in their various activities. The event ended with the video Salute, which is linked here.
