International: Trinidad & Belize

Social Crime Prevention in Trinidad

My first time out of the United States was to film this project about the work a nonprofit called the Pan American Development Foundation is doing to decrease crime in Trinidad. I met with and interviewed several locals to the country to learn about what life was like there and the challenges they face. The story is told through the eyes of a teenage boy who is a part of the program PADF has introduced to the Port of Spain community to help combat crime. In addition setting up the shots and filming, I edited the teaser above along with the full story, which can be watched here.

PADF Belize: Community preparedness & resilience to environmental challenges

A few months after I finished the short documentary I did for PADF in Trinidad, they sent me to Belize to document the work they were doing there about environmental challenges unique to the Central American country. Like how I did in Trinidad, I setup and filmed the shots and I edited the story together.
