PAKISTAN ELECTION

I filmed and edited this interview with reporter Declan Walsh in London on the subject of the 2013 Pakistani election for the New York Times.

I pitched this story to the Guardian in 2017. Workers at the Momentive chemical plant in Waterford, New York went on a 105 day strike over healthcare coverage. The dispute set them against Momentive’s owners including Donald Trump ‘jobs czar’, Stephen Schwarzman who is worth $11.1bn. I researched, filmed, conducted all interviews and edited this video.

SALOON

A glimpse inside Indian barbers-shops that I researched, filmed and edited in New Delhi. While not strictly news-video, this lighthearted 3min short demonstrates that shareable digital video can be compelling and fun while still providing viewers insight into the world around them.
