I briefly worked for a Baton Rouge media startup called The ProGap in the spring of 2016, serving as a production assistant and video editor. I helped develop a pilot about disability services, as well as shooting an instructional video at a prominent cosmetology center.

However, the flagship project for The ProGap is “Library Roadshow,” a monthly magazine program for my former employer. The public-access show highlights present and future events within the East Baton Rouge Parish Library system—EBRPL—while also advocating for childhood and adult literacy programs, and offering book and movie recommendations.

I assumed the majority of production responsibilities for this episode, rolling cameras and counting down the talent (floor direction). I also edited the package four minutes in, about the large-scale renovations at the Bluebonnet branch, the site of my very first job.
