Hard Earned, a six-part documentary series for Al Jazeera America, puts aside economic debates and follows five families around the country to find out what it takes to get by on eight, ten or even 15 dollars an hour. The series turns an intimate lens on this group of 21st century American dreamers. They fight against all odds to thrive, when it takes everything they have to simply survive.
I worked as a Production Assistant and Digital Tech on the television series Hard Earned. This series was commissioned by Al Jazeera America in conjunction with Kartemquin Films. I was responsible for media ingestion, data back-up and other film related tasks.
