Journalistic Video Productions
The Violent Racist History of Cannabis in the America
For a journalism class, I created an explainer video on the war on drugs and it's violent racist history.
The Black Twitter Show
For a journalism class focused on YouTube, I made a series of videos focusing on the day-to-day conversations, controversies and news stories that circulate Black Twitter and how I see them and why I see them that way. I also give commentary on how different sub-groups see these matters and why.
Pride in a Pandemic
For the final project in my journalism class, I was asked to produce a bright light story. This feature story is about Out in Tech's Virtual Pride Party. It was a community of queer people meeting over Kumospace instead of celebrating in public because of the pandemic.
Rising New York: Macy's Inc
For a journalism class I produced a Rising New York story. This story investigates the Macy’s Inc. and its giant renovation project that will involve not only updating its flagship store to include a 1.5 million-square-foot office tower above the store, but completely revitalizing the Herald Square neighborhood as well.
Joints for Jabs
For a journalism class I produced a hard news story. This story focuses on Washington State's joints for jabs program which allowed adults to receive a free joint when they get their COVID-19 vaccine. The marijuana for vaccinations promotion was in effect until July 12. It was part of the state's strategy to get more people vaccinated.
Podcast Audio/Video Production
This was my first experience in podcasting and I completely fell in love with it. I helped produce Pulse’s podcast: Everyday People. As a media student, it is extremely interesting to witness the comeback of radio but through the internet on mobile platforms. Also the rise of investigative and analytical podcasts interests me as I pursue my own career in investigative journalism.
Pulse Nigeria Independence Day Feature Story
On Thursday, October 1, 2020, Nigeria celebrated her 60th Independence Day. In a bid to create something beautiful to mark Nigeria’s Diamond Year on Pulse’s media platforms, my colleague and I collaborated on this project. The goal of the project was the tell the riveting story of Nigeria’s Independence Day in 1960 when she became a sovereign country free from British rule.
This is a short video documentary about the #EndSARS protests which occurred in Nigeria in October 2020. Working as a journalist with a popular media house, Pulse, I covered the protests and the aftermath and this small project is the collection of what I covered of this movement. You will be faced with shocking images and photos that may trigger you so be sure to steel yourself before going forward.
