These are two social media-style videos I made for my convergence classes, inspired by NowThis videos. The purpose of these videos is to entice the viewer to want to know more about my story/multimedia package after seeing a short video like this pop up in their social media channels (whether that be Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc.).
The first video promotes my feature story on Native American Identity and the second promotes a convergence package story about Minority Business Enterprises in the state of Missouri.
These are main videos I worked on for my convergence reporting classes; while the Native American Identity story is a longer, feature piece, I only had a few days to shoot and edit the story on Peggy Jean's Pies for a convergence assignment.
Please note: The Native American video was part of a team assignment in my second year of convergence reporting, whereas the Peggy Jean's Pies video was shot and edited 100% by me. The Peggy Jean's Pie video was one of the first assignments I completed for my convergence major, whereas the Native American Identity video was one of my last for my portfolio.
In my department at CNN, International Special Projects, I was fortunate enough to have a wide range of tasks, and get the opportunity to work with several other departments, such as CNN Travel.
One of my favorite tasks from my internship was being able to edit videos and vignettes that would later go on air. Here are some of the pieces I worked on during my summer at CNN International.
