Cochrane and WHO meet in Geneva

This video was recorded at the World Health Organization in Geneva and highlights the depth and breadth of an evolving partnership between WHO and Cochrane. Both organizations are global and have a common goal of ensuring the best evidence informs guidelines for the health of all of us. The warmth and passion of all the participants was a delight to work with. The main challenge was condensing complex processes and story lines into a coherent and digestible piece.

Excerpts from HIV Prevention with Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis: A Primer for Pharmacists

This excerpt is from a course teaching New York State pharmacists about how to educate their patients on Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis, or PrEP, an important tool in HIV prevention. The role of the patient called for a transgender woman and the client was committed to casting a local transgender actor. Garnet Rubio did an excellent job as did the entire cast and crew, including a make-up artist, Rashida Bolden, who had to step in very last minute as substitute. My role was the unflappable producer. To see the entire video presentation visit the CEI training page.

Setting an inclusive tone

I shot and edited a third eight-video training series for Consumers United for Evidence-based Healthcare to explore interpersonal dynamics on guideline panels between patients (consumers) and researchers, specialists and other clinicians. For this series they created scenarios based on real life experiences and we shot it with non-actors who in fact are consumer advocates, health researchers and doctors. It was amazing how ready the cast was to jump into roles they had in many cases not even seen yet. Additionally we shot on location at an international conference in Seoul, Korea – so most of us were jetlagged. The goal of the series is to prepare consumers for what to expect when they serve on a panel.

New York City Immigration Coalition Gala 2016

For three years I have created gala videos for the New York Immigration Coalition. Their organization keeps growing each year, expanding their programs and making a difference for immigrants in this state. My role in the project is to help shape a coherent message out of many achievements and goals. We always shoot a lot of material and have only a short time edit it down to a very contained running time. For this gala year I also shot and edited four additional short videos for honorees at the event.

Our own Soup Kitchen Community

I was honored when Trinity's Services and Food for the Homeless asked me to create this video series for them. The dedication of the volunteers and staff really impressed me on the day I spent shooting there and after as I worked the material. They used this video and four others in an online fundraising campaign that exceeded their goal. It’s great that they will be able to continue and expand the services they offer.

NIIC, Immigrants and the Economy

The last video in the series I created promoting the National Immigrant Integration Conference that was held in Brooklyn. This one focuses on the enormous contribution that immigrants make to the New York and national economy, especially through small businesses. Also, if you visit the LES (Lower East Side), you should check out Kottu House - it's tasty!
