I am a graduate from the State University of New York College at Plattsburgh with a degree particularly in Television and Video Production as well as a double major in Audio and Radio Production. Within my years at Plattsburgh, I was involved in Plattsburgh State Television, a core class for all students in the field, which is often credited and recognized on a regional and national scale. I served as Editing and Graphics Director for PSTV, supervising editors for pre-recorded on air programming. I also served as Master Control Supervisor, which involves distribution of programming on the air and training operators in that vocation. Outside my curriculum, I started my own media group SP1Films, creating video content from documentaries to promotional advertisements for various clubs and organizations on campus as well as for personal clients who require video services. I believe that my skills combined with my vast experience and work in production makes me a worthy candidate for an internship or possible employment. I have a burning passion for film and video production, especially in cinematography and postproduction.
As an aspiring cinematographer and editor, I take great interest into planning any project, putting my best foot forward to deliver a great piece with creativity and imagination. I believe in teamwork and know that it takes more than just myself to build a production. Having a double degree in Audio and Radio production has opened more doors for me and has increased my passion for audio. Within that, my love for music has grown so much. I give much appreciation and respect for a musical artist and it is a dream to produce music videos, bringing cinematic elements to a visual as one of many services. On the technical aspect, I constantly challenge myself to use different pieces of equipment and to use programs that expand my knowledge in the field. I constantly exercise the use of online resources with multiple broadcasting sites, production blogs and forums to learn and network. I am open to new experiences and can learn quickly about the environment and the people I work with.
I am currently in pursuit of my Master of Fine Arts Degree in Television Production at CUNY Brooklyn College. It is my last semester as I conclude with a feature documentary and a multi-camera production under my direction. It has become a great opportunity that I am partaking in. Obtaining an internship or the opportunity to build my career afterward is what I aim to achieve.
