Couples Share the Happiness and Heartache of Interracial Marriage
As a biracial person in an interracial relationship, I jumped at the opportunity to produce an original video that hits so close to home. We made an active effort to be as diverse as possible and include LGBTQ couples, who are often left out of the conversation. The hardest part of this project was that we were only able to use 3 minutes of the 17 hours of footage! Overall, it was such a wonderful experience to speak to each couple and hear their story. I hope you enjoy watching this video as much as I enjoyed making it.

Watch a Sparring Match Between Two Rescued Kangaroos
While adult kangaroos will fight each other to secure the right to mate, youngsters will spar with each other as practice for future battles. This video is most likely a demonstration of the latter. It can be cute to watch their stubby little T. rex arms jabbing at each other, but don't be fooled; their kicks can break bones, disembowel, and even kill another kangaroo.

A Brief History of Revolutions
I've always found revolutions to be fascinating studies of human nature. They're the result of relatively modern human inventions—such as laws and nations—not being able to provide for age-old human needs—such as security and well-being. In Revolutions 101, you'll discover the science behind revolutions and the four surprising ingredients behind all revolutions. So whether you're a lover, fighter, or all-around world-changer, this video is for you.

Snow and Skies Turn Orange in Eastern Europe
Pictures of Mars always strike me as uncanny: The alien landforms are somehow familiar. But last week, when orange snow covered ski slopes in Russia, making them look like Martian landscapes, the situation was reversed—a familiar location became strange. In art, the Russian term for this experience is ostranenie, changing part of a situation to spur new appreciation. An everyday scene evokes wonder, thanks to dust blown from the Sahara.

U2 Spy Plane Flies Through a Dazzling Aurora
As a huge aviation enthusiast, I found this a great video to work on. Aircraft are incredible examples of extreme engineering. Capable of reaching altitudes of 70,000 feet, the U-2 spy plane soars above Earth and, in this case, through a colorful aurora. It's amazing to witness these natural phenomena from the ground, as many people do in places like Iceland, but to fly through them is truly a rare and enviable event.
