Abstract

I created an online portfolio that exhibited many different mediums such as photography and videography. This portfolio would be an easy and quick way for potential employers to view my work all at once. They will be able to see that I have the skills to work in the industries that are concentrated in entertainment, news and sports. The videos that I directed consist of the Spotlight Concert Series, a recap of my Study Abroad trip to Ireland, and a news feature story, as well as the sports videos that I edited for the Bridgeport Sound Tigers. In addition to this, I also portrayed my photography skills through my travels. Since my online portfolio is diverse, employers from different media fields are able to find the talents they are hiring for. The media industry is always changing, so I want to be prepared to succeed in any career path I end up taking.
