A commentary on rejection. Wonderland, a place I made up, where rejection and failure are forgotten.
A tongue-in-cheek homage to French New Wave cinema of the 1960's. In the true spirit of "La Nouvelle Vague", I scrapped any notion of a "shot list" and made the film almost entirely over the course of three days.
A parody of Georgetown's finest betches.

I made this documentary for my Intro to Video class with Professor Bocci, Spring of 2014. I'm also currently a member of the breakdancing team on campus and I thought it'd be nice if we were able to get our name out there with this project. Most of it was shot on an XA10 with a Sennheiser shotgun mic for audio.
“Capedal” is a documentary exploring Washington, D.C. off the tourist path and onto the cycling path. With 56 miles of bike lanes and 137 Bikeshare stations, Washington, D.C. holds a place among the most bike-friendly cities in the world. From forested trails running alongside the Potomac to busy urban streets in the shadow of the Hill, “Capedal” joins six D.C. cyclists in the areas they love most.
As part of GAAP's continued efforts to attract the best and brightest to Georgetown, our Digital Media Team worked to create a comprehensive video tour of the four freshmen dorms, to provide students unable to attend the GAAP Weekends in person the opportunity to learn more about residential living experience here at Georgetown.
As short film about a boy who finds an emotional outlet in an unexpected place. Winner "Best Story / Screenplay" at the GU Film Festival. Made for Melissa Bruno's "Narrative Filmmaking" (ARTS-182).
This audio project, made in GarageBand and using an Olympus LS-100 from Gelardin for interviews, centers around the idea of narrative gaps in family history -- in this case, of unknown stories attributed to the Vietnam War. Jennifer Nguyen interviewed several Vietnamese Americans about the silence gaps in their respective families and how it may have affected the way they see and write about the world.

In Petals, a young woman overcome with guilt seeks redemption with the help of a bouquet of yellow roses. The film, written for Melissa Bruno's Narrative Filmmaking course, explores love, loss and healing through the eyes of the misunderstood. The film was shot on location in Georgetown, Washington D.C. by first-time writer and director Brett Treacy.
These videos were created as part of an ITEL project (CLED Flipped Grammar: Jennifer Lubkin & Andrew Screen). The purpose of the project is to explore what type of impact flipping specific units of a grammar class has on student learning.
These videos, as well others that were created for this class, are designed to serve as instructional video clips to enhance grammar instruction in text books or in class. One of the main goals of the project is to reduce the teacher talking time in class by "flipping" the class. By flipping, the explanations are provided through video and watched by students for homework, and the class time then allows more time for language practice.
Please view the photos on Flickr from top to bottom, left to right. Read all of the photo descriptions for a complete appreciation of the project. For even more complete understanding, feel free to listen to Lady Gaga's new album as you go, though of course not required.
The ARTPOP ARTPROJECT was a 4 month long opportunity I seized to celebrate my artistic passions that I often have to ignore due to the demanding workload of being a Georgetown University student.
The project is based on Lady Gaga's most recent album ARTPOP. For each song on the album I created a photo representation in which I had a friend or family member let me paint their face, then he or she modeled in a photo shoot. The photos were then photoshopped on pixlr.com and I incorporated pieces of artwork from my portfolio into the photo. The resulting image serves as my interpretation of the song through several artistic media. Included with each song is an essay explaining my creative process behind the art, as well as my goal with the photo representation.
Showcase Showdown Fall 2013 winner!
Documentary video on my quest to find mountain biking trails in the Washington DC area. Also documents whether it is possible to have an authentic mountain biking experience in an urban setting like Washington DC.
The purpose of this project was to explore some of the challenges and techniques associated with recording the sound of the rear-facing French horn. In this fantasia, I pieced together excerpts of my playing with the horn miked close to the bell, more distantly in the hall, and in the midst of the orchestra. The voice of the conductor is used throughout the mix as a commentary on the art of balancing symphonic sounds from a podium, which parallels what I learned about balancing sound from my seat as simultaneous musician and recording artist.
This is a cookbook I created using illustrator for my Introduction to Graphic Design course. I asked my fourteen cousins to each submit a recipe that is special to him or her. I then used illustrator to combine the recipes into a colorful book and gave it to my Grandmother for Christmas.
