I created this piece when I was working on my Masters and used it later in Bits and Bytes, an online newsletter for teachers that I publish at work every two months.

One of my favorite production items over the years has been the creation of event videos for events at Greenhill School. This video collection represents the creative side of covering an event.

Each of the videos chosen for this collection have been reduced in size to help facilitate sharing across the web.
