University Video Essays

The other day, I helped put together a little minute-long video essay for a friend of mine. He came to me looking for help with his NYU Wagner video application.

Before setting out to record this short personal message, we sat down and looked at what other people had submitted to various NYU programs.

I was amused at the quality of the competition. A vast majority of video essays were shot off of a laptop’s webcam….

… while others were shot vertically, quite possibly from an iPhone.


I guess that’s alright for Buffalo Hot-Wings, but we needed something a little more interesting.

It was a quick little exercise and I felt it went alright. Hopefully it’ll pay off for my friend Robbie.


Afghanistan and the 2011 Mothers’ Index – EVOLUTION 107.9 NEWS Comment

The 2011 Mothers’ Index was released on May 3, only a couple days before Mother’s Day.
Out of 164 countries, Norway is ranked #1, Canada #20 and USA #31.
Afghanistan has been ranked the worst place in the world for women and children.
I think it’s fitting that we take a minute to think about what Canada can do to help better the conditions for women and children in Afghanistan.
