I directed and filmed this retro-style music video for The Seventeens' cover of "Georgie Girl" in the autumn of 2020.

The Tuality Plains Great Grains Initiative worked with Scott Wray media to produce a mini documentary, on which I worked as a cinematographer.
In spring of 2017, I worked with two other student filmmakers--Leandra Benson-White and Jazmin Kopacz--to conceive of and animate a Hawaiian folktale in the style of Lotte Reiniger.
The black paper-cutout puppets were designed and constructed by myself.
In 2018, the short animation was featured at the BendFilm Festival in Bend, OR.
