Through the Eyes of Our Campers

Drone and filming with Chelsea Bond Stuart, who also edited this piece

Our mission at HRF has evolved from the simple notion of providing youth with a fun camp experience to improving young lives and creating a positive impact across South LA. We invest in students, their families, their schools and their communities. We bring youth and parents from Watts and Compton out for a safe, nurturing, and enriching experience at no cost to them, and use that experience to foster positive discourse, provide tools for reflection, and help young men and women set goals to rewrite the future of their school and their community.

Learning to Fly: Drones in the ACG

Produced with funding from the University of Missouri and the Carnegie Foundation

Firefighters in the Guanacasté National Park in Costa Rica double as park rangers, trying to protect the land and animals. Keeping poachers out and firefighters safe while they tame fast-moving brush fires is a tough feat made more difficult by a lack of technology, including handheld radios. Now these firefighters are looking for a little help from the sky — using drones. Students from the University of Missouri's drone course help these firefighters learn how to fly drones over the course of a week in hopes of aiding them in their conservation efforts.

A Midsummer Night's Carnival

Filmed and produced for The Missourian

 Screams and carnival music fill the air. A familiar feeling arises in your chest. At least, that's what the hope is with "A Midsummer Night's Carnival" video. It is meant to be an experiential video, taking the viewer through a night at the carnival. Familiar sounds and sights fill the screen. This video was made with a combination of a DSLR and a GoPro over two trips to the Boone County Fair, held at the Central Missouri Events Center. At times, the video is shot from my perspective as I went on different rides. At other times, the shots are taken from the perspective of a bystander lost in the events happening around them. Hopefully at the end, you feel as if you spent a night at the carnival. While most videos guide their viewers through with an audio interview, I took a different approach. With this piece, I wanted to strictly guide the viewer through visuals and ambient sounds. It's supposed to be somewhat dreamlike, as many carnivals seem to feel.

I'll let you be the judge.
