Hope’s Got Talent 2017

Hope Church of the C&MA in Brunswick, Ohio, put on their third annual talent show in March 2017 called “Hope’s Got Talent”, where people in the church can participate and perform in this event that raises for the high school summer trip. I produced three promotional videos for the event. Watch them below!





Christmas Groove 2016: Auditions and Interviews

Over the past few years, I have had the privilege of playing cello for and editing concerts of the Christmas Groove, a Christmas benefit concert in northeast Ohio. In 2016, not only did I once again perform, but I also helped produce short videos that were shown throughout the concert. These videos included interviews with the band members asking their favorite Christmas memories and ‘audition’ videos, skits of fake auditions members have to perform in order to join the band. I filmed, edited, and mixed these videos and also helped write the audition videos, primarily the last of the three. The videos premiered at the concert December 2 & 3, 2016. Enjoy them below!


Hope’s Got Talent 2016 Promos

In February 2016, Hope Church of the C&MA in Brunswick, Ohio, hosted its second annual talent show event, Hope’s Got Talent, to raise money for the church’s high school students’ trip to the LIFE 2016 conference in Kansas City. Youth pastor David Trainer and I collaborated on the ideas for three short promotional videos to play in preparation for the event. I shot and edited the three videos in December 2015 and January 2016. Check them out below!




Hope’s Got Talent: Promo Videos

In January 2015, I was blessed to continue doing promotional videos for my church, Hope C&MA Church in Brunswick, as we got ready for an upcoming event: “Hope’s Got Talent”. This was a variety show fundraiser supporting several high school students and leaders going on a missions trip to Peru in July 2015. Pastor David Trainer and I wrote the scripts for three short promos for the event, faux auditions for the show, that played in Hope’s weekend services from January 17 to February 1. The event was ultimately sold out. Enjoy the videos below (as well as our script)!

This “mockumentary” video was produced in commemoration of the tenth anniversary of the Christmas Groove, a Christmas benefit concert serving nonprofits in Medina County, Ohio. I co-wrote, produced, directed, shot, edited, and mixed this video, which turned out to be a big hit when it premiered at the Christmas Groove concerts on December 5 and 6, 2014. Check it out below!

Also feel free to read the screenplay which we used to film the video!
