Short Film Work



Costume Intern

I worked as a costume intern for 2019 Comic-Con. I sewed the collar and tie for the Brony Sanders costume, acquired supplies for many of the costumes like Breastfeeding Hello Kitty and the Sonic Redesign, and bought and rented supplies and costumes for the Snickers advertisement spots. For the Snickers shoot, I sorted costumes and accessories as well as dressing over 30 actors.


Unscripted Development

I made pitch decks and development materials for CitizenSkull Productions. I used mostly Adobe InDesign as well as Adobe Photoshop, Microsoft Word, Microsoft Powerpoint, and Adobe Illustrator.
