RECENT SHORT FILMS

Below are examples of my recent productions. "The Odyssey Project" gave a voice to some of Oklahoma City's homeless population. "Title Shot: Alex Saucedo's quest for the WBO belt" goes behind the scenes as a fighter prepares for his title shot. It won a Telly Award for single documentary. 

 
 

documentary: The odyssey project

I’ve worked with City Care over the past few years, helping them create change in Oklahoma City. Here are two documentaries that debuted at their annual event, The Odyssey Project.

Spent a day on the streets in 2017 among Oklahoma City's homeless, documenting local artist Jabee Williams as he navigated the system without ID or money.

Then in 2018, I captured Krystal Malone’s story of homelessness and redemption as she spoke with city councilwoman Meg Salyer.

A behind-the-scenes look at the week leading up to the Alex Saucedo-Maurice Hooker title fight for the WBO junior welterweight world championship.

BUILDING A STUDIO

As video host and Director of Video for The Oklahoman, I've designed video and audio studios at two locations. Our current studio is located at the corner of Robinson and Sheridan in downtown Oklahoma City.

 
The Oklahoman's studios in downtown Oklahoma City feature multiple sets for interviews and production work. The studio faces into the newsroom and to the street.

Design

Collaborating with my colleagues at The Oklahoman, my design is based on sets used by the BBC and France 24, along with some ideas borrowed from NBC (street side) and Fox News (couch).

studio interviews

The proximity to downtown gives me access to interview movers and shakers of the community, from politicians to civic leaders, along with celebrities and guests who come through Oklahoma City.
