Hillmann & Carr, Inc.

Video Editor and Graphic Designer, May 2011-Jan 2013

I helped our team of editors and producers create video and graphic content for, primarily, interactive exhibit spaces all over the United States.

My responsibilities included editing and creating graphics for non-linear multimedia content such as short-form documentaries, interviews, and educational interactive videos that were often developed with the videos’ physical environments in mind.

I also aided our producers in pre-production by editing scripts, creating proposal designs, and helping manage project budgets and Gantt charts.

Over the course of my time at Hilmann & Carr, I managed thousands of media files and licenses for a complex number of multimedia projects, the largest of which a media exhibit for the The Annenberg Foundation Trust at Sunnylands, a seven-year-long multimillion dollar project.

Our clientele included the Smithsonian museums, the Library of Congress, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
