The Best Thing About Being a Video Producer


A big thanks to Sr. Clare Joseph Daniels for snapping a shot while I was filming at her monastery!

The best thing about my job as a video producer? That’s a tough one, but I decided to think it through in the interest of looking back on 2018 and looking ahead to 2019. 

#TheBest: I get to help people share their story.

That is the best part of my job, hands-down. First, I get to be a sponge and learn so many cool things about people, occupations, passions, and about life. Then, like a gemcutter, I get to refine these ideas into their clearest form. Then, I get to share it with the world, often surprising and delighting my subject by revealing things that even they didn’t know about themselves. Storytellers have played a critical part in collecting, preserving and sharing the treasures of humanity since the beginning of time. And I’m blessed to be one.
