Field shoots, in-studio directing, editing, writing, on-camera hosting... CBC Sports keeps me busy. A selection of my favourite pieces of work are below.
Being Black in Canada at the Olympic Games was designed to engage athletes, introduce new Winter Games faces to our audience and talk about the trials and tribulations of Black Canadian Olympians from the past and present.
I produced this feature cut, plus social media and broadcast promotional assets for Black History Month, and to serve as content meant to build towards the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing.
While You Were Sleeping is a daily recap show designed to keep Canadians informed on what their national representatives are doing overseas, overnight. Each morning, after Canada got some shut-eye, they could tune into WYWS and catch up.
Managing a junior producer, editor and production assistant’s workloads while writing and chasing athletes for interviews was not simple, but it was very rewarding.
The best part? Opening up our content to a wider audience in creating a bespoke, American Sign Language cut of WYWS; making content accessible to both deaf and low-vision viewers.
Team Canada Today was designed to educate viewers on new sports, faces and places ahead of the Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympics.
TCT explained newly-added Olympic sports, like sport climbing. Through athlete-shot vlogs, viewers connected with new Canadian faces, like Andy Anderson.
Most importantly, TCT served as a solid hype-buillder for what was a record-breaking Olympic period in terms of digital and broadcast viewership.
