A Masterpiece Revealed: Detroit Institute of Arts and Meadow Brook Hall

"A Masterpiece Revealed" is a 5-chapter documentary that tells the fascinating story of a 17th century painting re-discovered at Meadow Brook Hall and conserved by the Detroit Institute of Arts. Over the course of six months, I documented the progress of the painting through a behind-the-scenes look at the DIA's conservation labs.

The documentary begins with a history of Bartolomé Esteban Murillo's "The Infant Saint John the Baptist in the Wilderness" from its creation in Seville, Spain to its eventual home at Meadow Brook Hall in the 1920s. The re-discovery ignited a partnership between Oakland University and the DIA, allowing students to observe the scientific research and conservation. The painting will be on display for five years in the DIA's European Medieval to Renaissance Art gallery before returning to Meadow Brook Hall.

American Heart Association: Trevor's Story of Triumph

When Trevor Sullivan was 14 years old he was diagnosed with a heart disease called cardiomyopathy. After 3 months on a heart transplant list, a donor heart became available to Trevor. Trevor's story became famous when his family posted a video right when he woke up from his surgery. Trevor is now back in school and living a normal life as a heart transplant patient and survivor.

I was hired by the American Heart Association to tell Trevor's story. The video was shown at their Detroit Heart Ball event to raise donations for research and to help improve the quality of life for people like Trevor and his family.
