Lumehouse Studio

I started at Lumehouse Studios working as an intern in December 2015. I worked mostly on marketing. Lumehouse wanted to get on the radar of local ad agencies in Baton Rouge and surrounding areas, so we created a special box with the company’s reel.

Marketing

Although I don’t have pictures, the small white box contained a flash drive with our logo encompassing the drive and Lumehouse’s film reel on it. There was a personalized note to each company, signed by our Creative Director, and our Creative Director’s business card. The box was filled with square foam with slits for all the contents. The box was sealed with a personalized sticker for our targeted member on the ad team.

Social Media

Along with my time here, I was promoted to Social Media Manager. I promoted the company through Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. I posted daily on each platform and even connected with various companies through our platforms. I worked on social media and held this position for 3 months.

While here, I created special content for the sites and made all of our platforms cohesive and presentable for the public.

This was a Facebook Banner headline that I made using Adobe Photoshop and Indesign.

Production

I worked on several sets as a Production Assistant, including this TJ Ribs Spot.

When I expressed interest in working on pre-production and producing, the Creative Director let me and another intern take the lead on this Walk-On’s project. He let us plan some stages of pre-production and planning. We brainstormed a shot list for this shoot, and most of our shots made it into the actual spot.

FMA 2001 Video Projects

Short film

For Intro to film, FMA 2001, we had to make 2 films. For the first, it was to be a short film. The theme of the film was “miscommunication.” Everything we did in production and every question we had while filming, we asked ourselves how we could effectively portray this theme.

Two students in the same class were meeting up to study for an upcoming test. The boy in the film came prepared to study, while the girl thought of the meeting as a “study date.” She brought no paper, textbook, or backpack to the coffee shop to study with. Eventually, the girl finds out that this isn’t the date she was expecting and the boy has other plans.

We wanted to portray their feelings without showing their faces and facial expressions. This was quite a challenge. I edited the video together and worked as a PA, writer, and did a little directing on set.

 This is their awkward experience.

I wish we would have got different shots, had more time to rehearse scenes, and had used more equipment, like mics.

Documentary

Internet dating, especially sites like Tinder and Bumble is huge among millennials. We wanted to sit down with students and ask them questions about the site and personal experiences. We interviewed any willing participant we knew.

The Right Swipe explored questions like What do you gain from using Tinder? Do you take internet dating seriously? Is internet dating a legitimate way to meet someone? Would you rely on internet dating to find someone?

I edited the entire project in one day in about 8-9 hours using Adobe PremierePro CC.
