N.C. House Bill 2 Protest in Chapel Hill
North Carolina held a special session to eliminate legal protections for LGBT people, prevent companies from raising wages, and block trans people from using the bathrooms of their gender identity. In response, Chapel Hill and Carrboro hosted a protest from 6 p.m. to nearly 10 p.m. Protestors sat in the street for hours, but police refused to make any arrests. This rough-cut video appeared on The Daily Tar Heel’s website immediately following the end of the rally.
Sunny the Horse
I filmed this mini-documentary on my professor and her horse, Sundance, for a video editing class at UNC. Carol Wolf worked at Bloomberg for 18 years, and despite living in DC, her heart was in the countryside with her horse. When Wolf got Sundance he was severely abused. Four years later, he loves being around people and learning new tricks.
Confederate sympathizers, many from Alamance County, rallied to show support for the statue of a Confederate soldier at the entrance to UNC-Chapel Hill’s campus, Silent Sam. Students and community members hosted a counter-rally. This video appeared in The Daily Tar Heel.
DTH Distinguished Alumni Award Video
The inaugural Distinguished Alumni Award went to Pulitzer Prize winner Ed Yoder. Yoder was editor of the The Daily Tar Heel from 1955 to 1956. I was charged with making a video to honor his legacy at the paper.
