YOUTUBE

With a total of more than 5 million views and more than 82.000 subscribers on my YouTube channel, my videos represent one of the most essential parts of my work. Even if I started with a self-taught experience, I then decided to study Digital Storytelling at the State University of New York at New Paltz to learn more about video creation. I also learned new filmmaking and storytelling techniques when participating in events organized by the Media and Journalism Society, including a masterclass from Documentary Director Barbara Kopple. After joining Bangumi in 2020, I improved my skills which I now implement in the production of my own content.

I process every single step of video production by myself. I work on research, fact-checking, video logging (with hours of archives,) writing, voice-over, shooting, editing, and publishing. My work also includes the creation of thumbnails.

HISTORICAL DOCUMENTARIES USING ARCHIVAL FOOTAGE

“New York: Urban Jungle” is a 33-minute documentary about New York in the 1970s, as seen in the movie Taxi Driver. Using hundreds of archives, it immerses the viewer in the “fear city.” The film tackles the high crime, poverty, and prostitution, but also the birth of hip hop and the rise of disco. It also explores the nostalgia of certain New Yorkers for this era, before the city becomes what some call “disneyfied.”

“Atlantic City: the downfall of an empire” is a 20-minute short documentary about the History of Atlantic City, NJ. The film explains how one of America’s most visited cities became the broke place it is today, mentioning its importance during the prohibition era and Donald Trump’s influence in the 1980s. 

I have also created similar historical documentaries with the cities of Las Vegas and Detroit. 

“How 9/11 Changed The World” is a 56-minute documentary, using hundreds of archives -including rare footage- to document the 9/11 terrorist attacks. It also explains the events that came after and before, from the roots of terrorism to George Bush’s war on terror, exploring how the tragic events changed our world forever. 

EXPLANATORY JOURNALISM

This 17-minute video is an example of explanatory journalism, where I use history to better understand current events. This episode explains the roots of the surge of Asian hate in the United States during the pandemic, using historical examples such as anti-Asian immigration laws or the murder of Vincent Chin. 

This series of videos also explored current issues such as California wildfires, the American government and institutions, and American Elections.

ON-SITE REPORTS

This is an example of a travel video in Puerto Rico, mostly shot on iPhone while also using some drone footage. Most importantly, it explains the complicated status of Puerto Rico within the United States and analyzes the statehood debate using the testimony of a young Puerto Rican woman that I interviewed. It also shows the devastation of hurricane Maria. 

 

This video is a report fully shot on iPhone at a Donald Trump rally, in Orlando in 2018. It includes interviews with Trump voters as well as protesters. 

This video includes documentary-style interviews shot with a DSLR camera. It questions the worth of American education compared to what can be found abroad. 

 

All of my videos explore the many faces of the United States for a French audience. Themes include politics, culture, sports, and current events. You can find all of my online work on my YouTube Channel. For my work on television, you can visit this link.
