"Building on the success of previous conferences the 2014 Race & Pedagogy National Conference welcomed more than 2,000 local, regional, national, and international participants to engage issues of race and its impact on education."
During this project I was hired to film, direct, and stream the conference online and to a live audience of a few thousand people. The highlight videos below showcase my footage and shots directing a live 5-camera shoot.
Live audio and cabling was provided by Flamingo Audio. Some footage above was also created in collaboration with Sky Bear Media, LLC. Event description summary and links above are courtesy of University of Puget Sound.

North Kitsap Production of "The Laramie Project" shot and directed by Aaron Walker. The Laramie Project tells the story of the brutal hate-crime and murder of Matthew Shepard in 1998, and how the small town of Laramie, WY reacted to it. With a cast of eight, we performed over 50 different characters written from transcripts of real interviews from Laramie, WY. The original performance featured actors and actresses performing the scenes with some characters on a projected screen with video and others live on-stage. Our production was featured in the North Kitsap Herald and you can read the article here.
Bang Bang You're Dead! is a Peabody Award winning play written by William Mastrosimone to raise awareness of school violence and its causes. The Reality Theater Group performed with a cast of 8 team members and use a mixed-media presentation that combined live stage acting and pre-recorded video performances. After the play was met with positive feedback from the community, the cast was invited to perform for the Kitsap County Council for Human Rights. The event was hosted at the beautiful Kiana Lodge , with over 1,000 people in attendance including Governor of Washington State (in 2006) Christine Gregoire. I Filmed, Directed, and Edited all the video for the production and also played a few of the characters in the play.
