Public Radio International and 20 Below Studio

I’ve just completed work on the Public Radio International series of Interview Videos for the online edition of Architecture MN Magazine.

For this project I was Director, Photographer, Editor, Audio Enigineer, and Graphics Editor. I thought that to be a bit much to include on a "Credit slide" so this is the only place you'll see it mentioned. Special thanks goes to the Julia Yager, Alissa Miller, and Jennifer Randolph and the entire staff of PRI, Joe Hamilton and Kim Batcheller from 20 Below Studio, and Chris Hudson from Architecture MN Magazine.

Pt. 1: THIS IS PRI (5m31s)

Designed by 20 Below Studio, PRI’s new home in Minneapolis’ warehouse district reflects PRI’s philosophy for collaboration and communication as well as their ability to uncover layers of a story through investigation and research.

Pt. 5: Diagram Discussion (2m03s)

A way to evaluate options, spacial planning through bubble diagrams is explored during the programing phase of a new project. This can shift conversations and create consensus among diverse opinions.
