Rockhard Rollergirls

At the time this story aired, the Rockhard Rollergirls were a start-up Roller Derby league based in Jacksonville, AR. They didn't have any teams - they just practiced as a group at the Jacksonville skating rink in preparation for future competitions. I especially like the use of the lipstick cam in this piece. This piece took first place Arkansas AP Awards for both Non-Spot Photography and Feature in 2006. This nat sound piece aired on KTHV in July 2006.

Trapshooting 101

My latest nat sound piece was done on trapshooting. My friend Jason thought it might make an interesting news story, since there's not currently much of a buzz surrounding it. Plus, it went well with the competition being held at the Remington Gun Club in Lonoke, AR a day later.

This story aired on August 30, 2008 on KTHV. It won a third place NPPA award for Feature News in the 3rd Quarter 2008 TV Quarterly Clip Contest, and in 2009 received two Emmy statues - one for editing, and one for videography. It picked up a regional Edward R. Murrow award for videography as well.
