Coaching Colburn

Coaching Colburn is a 2014 documentary about James Colburn, a then 26-year-old from Newburyport, MA living with Fragile X and autism.  James is my cousin, and I was part of the team that produced the film as part of a class at Trinity College in Hartford, CT.  I pitched the idea for the film, was on the writing team, served as production coordinator during the shoot, transcribed interviews, edited footage, and planned film festival outreach.  The two videos below are clips from the film, which has played in festivals across the U.S. and overseas.  The original 17-minute film was recently expanded to 27 minutes.

Illume is a travel consultancy based in Boston that specializes in customized group travel for churches and religious organizations, academic institutions, non-profits, and other groups.  Common destinations include Italy, Spain, the Holy Land, Greece, Turkey, the UK, France, and others in Europe.

The following video is a project I shot and edited to show illume's participants some shopping options in Florence, Italy.  It appears online in an article I wrote for illume, available here.


I created the following video promote illume's capacity to create travel programs for groups of friends, family, and other less formal constituencies.  Some of the footage is my own and some is stock or found footage.

 

This was the first video I created for illume.  It is meant to inspire possible organizers to create their own customized travel program with illume.

 

Dream House

The video below is a concept trailer for Dream House.  It was shot for a crowd-funding campaign in hopes of securing funds to produce a feature-length film.  I was the 2nd assistant director for this trailer, and was involved in pre-production and production.
