Birthday Tradition in Portugal

Featuring Christie Rampone’s four-year-old daughter, Reese, is my favorite video I have had the opportunity to produce thus far during my time with the U.S. WNT. Reese has celebrated every birthday at the Algarve in Portugal. I enjoyed connecting with Reese on a personal level, enough that she felt comfortable with me to giggle and play as if the camera were not in my hands, as well as gather heartfelt interviews of WNT athletes. This video allowed fans to see a different side of such prolific athletes, whom have become Reese’s second family, and reminded me of how one video can not only be entertaining, but moving.

Studio 90: WNT Opens 2014 vs. Canada

On my second trip out with the WNT, I produced videos leading up to the USA vs. Canada game for ussoccer.com and youtube.com/ussoccer.

This was the final video I produced on this trip, working with another videographer to gather broll. This video was also my first quick turnaround project as we shot this piece the night before game day and had it ready to publish the next morning.
