Black Match Productions
Under this section, you will see examples of my video work, both short and long form non-fiction. Black Match productions is a company I started with my husband, Daniel McNew. We use this company to work with businesses and non-profits to create videos to suite their needs. I have also included all of passionate documentary work. Take a Look!
A Year For Us
What is the life of a mega Instagram star really like? Evie Farrell, an Australian single mother, quit her job, sold all of her belongings and bought one way tickets to Asia for her and her 7-year-old daughter, Emily. Evie begins to struggle with the pressure of 80,000 followers on Instagram and the stress that comes with a nomadic traveling lifestyle. I am currently in post-production for this short film at the Edinburgh College of Art. (New trailer coming soon)
**The full version has not been publicly released, please email me if you would like to see the film.

To Be A Torero
How do cultural traditions play into the hopes and dreams of the youth? Borja, a twelve year old boy from Spain dreams of becoming a professional bullfighter to achieve glory and bring his family out of poverty. This short film, directed by Inma de Reyes is currently in post-production at the Edinburgh College of Art. I am the producer of this film and will be seeing it through to completion.
Won’t Pipe Down
My family’s property and business are on the potential route for the Atlantic Coast Natural Gas Pipeline. I teamed up with Marley McDonald, Dan McNew and Art Pekun to make a film concentrating on property rights and corporate eminent domain actions. “Won’t Pipe Down” is a short documentary presenting the definitive David versus Goliath battle between the residents of Nelson County, Virginia and the Dominion Power company. This inside look at the community and their fight against the ACP raises questions about environmental justice, property rights, and individual rights. Won’t Pipe Down toured with the Wild & Scenic Environmental Film Festival in 2016.

Silverback Distillery Marketing
This creative marketing video was done for Silverback Distillery using it’s security cameras to promote it’s products. I directed, produced and edited this video. This obviously “fake” break in video received 357 likes and reached a total of 106,303 people through Facebook. Our call to action was for people to comment with photos of their lost and found Strange Monkey Gin bottles, which was very successful.
