FROM WRIT TO WROUGHT.
I was hired by Tom O'Neil and Amy Berkholtz from the entertainment awards tracking site Gold Derby to help them launch a weekly 1-hour live internet broadcast featuring interviews with actors and show creators as they awaited the Emmy nomination announcements. We did 13 episodes, sponsored by Sony Pictures Entertainment, and featuring the likes of Kiefer Sutherland, Kelsey Grammer, Debra Messing, William H. Macy, Joel McHale, Zooey Deschanel, Aaron Paul, Carson Daly, John Slattery, Nick Offerman, Lena Dunham, Eric Stonestreet and many more. Most fun I've had online, ever.
This is hands down the most difficult project I have ever been a part of. My Last Days is a web series on the YouTube-backed Soul Pancake channel (run by actor Rainn Wilson), that follows terminally-ill individuals who have been given a finite amount of time to live. I edited this pilot episode, featuring Ryan Woods and his amazing family. I was extremely inspired by their story, and I spent so much time with them through transcribing and editing many hours of footage, that when Ryan actually did pass away a few months later, I was crushed. I chose not to continue with the series, but I will cherish the experience forever. "Keep death upon your shoulder for it will remind you to love." I highly recommend watching this, regardless of my involvement with it.
