My name is Melinda J. I'm a filmmaker based in Oakland, CA, and freelance as a Director, Cinematographer, and Editor. I enjoy producing music videos, short docs and narratives, and campaign videos for organizations. I often take projects from conception to completion, so there isn't any step of the filmmaking process that I am unfamiliar with. Whether it's scriptwriting, storyboarding, or distributing your videos on the web for the world to see, I can assist you in seeing in through.

I also manage my own blog that I built on Wordpress and my portfolio that I build on CargoCollective. I love all things social media and have many followers that I enjoy communicating with via Twitter, Facebook Groups, LinkedIn and Instagram. If you're interested in building a fan base and support network online, I can help show you the way.

When I'm not working on video projects, I enjoy going on adventures and taking photos on my half-frame camera.

Basketball

I played basketball throughout junior high and high school. My team won the GEL during my senior year. I played a year of intramural basketball. I played positions as post and guard and continue to play pick-up games with my friends now and then.

Macintosh

I own two Mac computers, an iMac and MacBook Pro and have been a Mac user since 2007. It is the primary computer I use for work and personal assignments.

Video Production

I've been producing videos for over 3 years and have my Master's in Documentary Filmmaking. I have managed a team of youth in my last position to create a 20 minute short on behalf of the Metta Fund. This summer will be leading a team of 8 youth from all over the country to produce a short at the Adobe Youth Summit.
