After Alyssa Alhadeff died in the Parkland shooting, her mother Lori turned first to faith, then politics. In honor of Alyssa, she took on the establishment and won a seat on the county school board.
“After Parkland” tells the story of what happened to members of two families who lost daughters in the shooting — the Alhadeffs and the Schentrups — in a three-part series and how they transformed overwhelming grief into meaning. A third part shows how the shooting reignited the charged political divide over guns. To view the other parts of the series visit: https://www.voanews.com/parkland
As an intern for Voice of America, I worked with the executive producer of the series during production and pre-production stages. As a team, we created a detailed editorial outline of each part of the series to use as a guideline during the post-production stage. I also assisted with the planning of interviews and filming dates for the series as well as filming b roll and organizing all footage needed.
