Look who’s back! In addition to my full-time position at UF, I’ve rejoined the staff of Santa Fe College as an adjunct faculty member with the Digital Media and Graphic Design Technology program.
I’m teaching Multimedia Production II this summer B session. The course builds on the basics of cinematography, video editing and visual storytelling. In a short semester, my students will produce a documentary/news style piece, recreate a scene from a narrative fiction film, and edit a public service announcement. I’m looking forward to working with with the students and I’m excited to get this experience as an educator.
The Law Enforcement Basic Recruit Training prepares students as entry-level law enforcement officers in the State of Florida. Practical skills and simulated activities complement the classroom instruction. Upon successful completion, students are eligible to take the Florida Department of Law Enforcement State Certification Examination (SOCE). This minimum standards class is regulated by Florida statutes and is a highly structured and disciplined program with special rules, policies and procedures.
I had a lot of fun shooting and editing this promo for the SF Kirkpatrick Center.
After a great year and a half with Santa Fe College Communications & Creative Services, I’ve announced that I will be moving on to join the communications team at the University of Florida Office of Development & Alumni Affairs. My time at SF has been an enjoyable and rewarding experience. I’m proud to have become a member of the Santa Fe College community and did not expect to be leaving so soon. While I couldn’t pass up this wonderful opportunity to work with the Gators at the university, there are many things I will miss about the college and its people. I wish all my colleagues at SF the best and hope they have a glorious reign as the Aspen Prize #1 community college in the nation!
I made it Facebook official on April Fool’s Day with a JUCO Signing Day style announcement.
“First of all, I’d like to thank Santa Fe College for the opportunities afforded to me during these past 18 months. I’d like to thank the administration, David Houder, Teri McClellan, Chuck Clemons and President Sasser for believing in me and giving me the support I’ve needed to be successful. And I have to credit my teammates in Communications & Creative Services, without whom I wouldn’t be here today. After much deliberation and talks with my family, I’ve decided that I will be taking my talents to the University of Florida. Go Gators!”
CTE asked for a :30 commercial for their spring campaign. They wanted it quickly and left all the creative decisions up to me. I wrote some copy based on some of their existing print materials, incorporated photographs we had in our portfolio, and was able to whip up this spot in a couple of days.

Check out the time lapse-rrific ad I made to promote Santa Fe College’s #1 status.
The morning fog lured me into the dew covered field on the corner of Santa Fe College campus. I left with this shot and wet socks.
Santa Fe College faculty, staff and students surprise President Sasser upon his return from accepting the Aspen Prize in Washington, D.C.
The shooting for this was entirely run-and-gun and the edit was quickly put together the next morning, so it’s not the gold standard in terms of production quality. However, I think the emotions shine through in this. You can tell Dr. Sasser was truly surprised by how many people were there to welcome him home and his comments are sincere and off the cuff.
I filmed with a Canon 7D and a shoulder mount. Our video production intern Krystal Williams shot with a 5D on a monopod and our web designer Aaron Hall picked up some cut away coverage on his iPhone.

I produced a series of four video profiles for SF’s Women of Distinction event. The pieces screened at the ceremony as an introduction to the women of distinction and the woman of promise.

I did pretty much everything on this :30 from writing copy to flying the quadcopter. I even did the voice over. The photos of SF students are from the Communications & Creative Services portfolio, but I did all the other shooting and editing.
