OUTREACH MASS BROADCAST

Due to state mandates suspending in-person religious services, St. Martha Parish in Okemos, MI decided to pivot to Live-to-Tape Mass, and subsequently Live Mass broadcasts.

Throughout a year of specialized volunteering, I was able to guide the parish through the creation and growth of a YouTube channel, the installation of camera, sound and broadcast gear; and the design of motion graphics; and drafting a standard style for camera movement and composition.
