Unfinished Sentences: UW Center for Human Rights

Produced by Simon Fox in collaboration with UW Jackson School and Pro-Busqueda

I undertook this project as my senior thesis in the Jackson School at UW. I headed a video team of 4 students to produce two videos for a human rights organization in El Salvador that seeks to reunite families that were separated during the 1980s civil war. We spent six weeks storyboarding and preparing and then one week on the ground in El Salvador collecting testimonies from survivors. The video contains a ton of information and is packaged in an elegant way that I hope does justice to those that appeared in it. I spent more time and effort on any project of my life because it had real world implications and because I identified with it in a way where it never felt like I was working.

The University of Washington Daily

Produced by Simon Fox

I produced this video to provide multimedia coverage to a written article that appeared in The Daily the day after a vigil was held honoring the victims killed in the attack on Garissa University in Kenya. I worked with a reporter and one other camera man from The Daily. I was able to produce this video in about 3 hours and it demonstrates my ability to cover breaking news with video. In addition to producing it with such a short turn around, it also does a good job of delving into a complex issue. Rather than just covering the event (time, place, organizer, etc.) I wanted to speak to the unfortunate side effect of mass violence we face in the Western world: That if it does not directly affect us, it is easy to just let the bodies pile up oversees and say ‘What a shame.”
