Digital Video Projects
Videos I planned, shot, edited, and produced.
Shot with various Sony digital camcorders and my iPhone; edited/produced using Avid, Final Cut, iMovie, Garage Band, Audacity, and the iPhone apps "Splice" and "Flipagram."
"I Like Tacos" is a poem that's included in my book, The Trickster Riots. I produced and edited this video; my kiddo Ohíya and partner Dalton helped me record it (the video was made in the spring of 2021). The poem was written in January 2020. I created the video for Tipi Confessions. Tipi Confessions is a live storytelling show on sex, sexuality, and gender, featuring performance and anonymous audience confessions. Tipi Confessions highlights Indigenous, decolonial, political, humorous, creative, feminist, queer, and/or educational perspectives. Tipi Confessions shows showcase spoken word, personal narrative, erotica fiction, burlesque, live musicians, and short theatre performances.
