NEW YORK CITY — After a successful test-run in 2014, the ASPCA re-assigned me the task of producing a behind-the-scenes video series about the making of their 2015 calendar. The calendar is a yearly gift to qualifying ASPCA donors and features the stories of the organizations employees and their adopted pets. The videos supplement the calendar’s online presences, which includes additional photos and stories. They are also used to market the calendar, for fundraising, and to spread the message about animal adoption.

I produced the series as a one-man-band (producer, shooter, editor). I operated the camera, recorded the audio, conducted the interviews, and edited for all of these productions.

The gear I used included: Canon XF-305 camera, Sennheiser shotgun and lavaliere microphones, and the videos were edited in Adobe Premiere CS6.

All of the videos that I produced for the 2015 calendar are embedded below. I hope you enjoy them!
