My work in multimedia production is rooted in my undergraduate degree followed my graduate studies, and ensuing work in video and audio productions. I start with pre-production, including scripts, shot lists, casting and hiring, coordinating, and contracts. I direct and produce work, which can be a 20-person film shoot or a two-person podcast interview for which I act as host and audio engineer. I move into post-production with video and audio editing, foley work and sound design. When a production is complete, I also market and distribute the work, from podcasts to DVDs, festivals and streaming services.

Experimental and narrative short videos include those shot with HD video and with 16mm film, ranging from the surreal to the comedic, and dramatic. Short “Ice Cream for Breakfast” was nominated as semi-finalist in the Adobe Design Achievement Awards, a video for which I wrote, directed, produced, and edited.

 
 
 
 
 

Journalistic interviews and documentary videos require a comfortability with video equipment and tech, time management, and relationship management skills. Video sample “Endeavor with Tay Lotte of Ravle, Inc.” is one of a series focused on university student entrepreneurs.

Meeting in the Media offers video, audio and written content meeting at the intersection of media and technology.

Videos feature host Geena Matuson, and guests in the media/tech space, while the podcast features journalistic content and sit-down interviews with media specialists and entrepreneurs through a more personal conversation. You can also find articles, essays and thought pieces.

“I’ve found when people talk about what they’re interested in, they’re talking about what they do,” Matuson says. “So let’s get to know each other on a deeper level, and meet in the media.”
