One of the biggest challenges of working on Monsters Inside Me was finding interview subjects who were willing to be part of the show. I spoke with many individuals who had endured terrible parasitic and bacterial infections that had left them in the hospital. I contributed to pitch meetings and also assisted in simplifying complex medical concepts into graphic mockups.
I worked closely with the filmmakers of this show, Nathan Dappen and Neil Losin, to obtain all footage and clearances needed. I also created an animated linguistics graphic for the final show.
Working at Smithsonian on SEAL Dog was an incredible opportunity to learn about military working dogs. I met and worked closely with a former Navy SEAL and his trained german shepherd, Chopper. We filmed at military locations, interviewed military personnel and gathered extensive footage. I coordinated production for our off-site producer and ensured that the process went smoothly.
