Rachel’s Network - We See You


This video was created to launch the Rachel’s Network Catalyst Award, a new initiative to provide women leaders of color support and recognition for their commitment to a healthy planet. I had the pleasure of interviewing Maite Arce of the Hispanic Access Foundation in DC, Rhea Suh of NRDC in New York, and Angelou Ezeilo of Greening Youth Foundation in Atlanta, editing their stories together to create a script that supports the ethos behind the Catalyst Award and encourages a more diverse environmental movement.

World Bank Climate - Adaptation Matters

directed & EDITED BY KAIA ROSe, filmed by Kaia Rose (niger)

and Alana Holmberg (kiribati)

At COP24, the World Bank announced a major new set of climate targets for 2021-2025, including a major focus on adaptation finance. To support this launch, Connect4Climate helped produce a series of videos showing the human side of adaptation in Niger and Kiribati. I created an outline and was involved in choosing our locations and subjects, then travelled to Maradi in Niger to film that part of the film. I worked closely with two teams of translators to put the script together for the main video as well as the accompanying short videos for Niger and Kiribati. By working closely with our videographer in Kiribati, Alana, and sending her a clear shot list, I was able to match shots during editing and weave these two stories from different sides of the planet together.

Aarhus Convention 


Connect4Climate was invited to create a video for the 20th Anniversary of the UN Aarhus Convention that tapped into the essence of what the Aarhus Convention is about: environmental democracy.  Using the key themes that underline the Convention's work, the team created a script and invited Salina Abraham to star in this atmospheric journey through what it means to be connected to your environment and have a voice in the decision-making process.  We shot it over two days in New York City and it was showcased at the 20th Anniversary event in Italy.

World Bank Group at COP24


As part of Connect4Climate, I joined the World Bank comms team at COP24 in Katowice, Poland, where we had a Joint Multi-Lateral Development Bank pavilion. Each day, I filmed and ran the lunch-time #MDBTalks Facebook Live sessions, took photos of key events, filmed video messages for social media, and, at the end, created a wrap-up video that captured the World Bank’s contribution to the climate conference.

Carbon Pricing Leadership Coalition

written & directed BY KAIA ROSE, animated by dani tinez

Working with the communications team from the Carbon Pricing Leadership Coalition (CPLC) at the World Bank, Dani Tinez and I created a style for a series of videos that could be used to promote CPLC events, highlight Carbon Pricing Leaders, and amplify key messages and priorities of the coalition. Using a combination of footage that I have filmed with clips from the CPLC archive, I generally edit together a script and then collaborate with Dani to create a plan for the animation.

The Global Environment Facility - 6th Assembly Recap & GEF Small Grants Programme promo


The Connect4Climate team was invited to Da Nang, Vietnam to amplify the important messages coming out of the 6th Global Environment Facility (GEF) Assembly.  Alongside a full Digital Media Zone, I filmed and edited a recap video and accompanied the GEF CEO on a visit to a Land Crab Conservation project on Cham Island.

Our Climate - Putting a Price On It: NY State


Climate Countdown and Our Climate are collaborating on a series of short videos that highlights different state carbon pricing campaigns underway across the country.  NY State is the first one to be produced, starring young climate leader Zina Precht-Rodriquez, focusing on two pieces of legislation the coalition NY Renews is working to pass through the state legislature.  This video received over 11,000 views on Facebook and will hopefully lead to more.

Innovate4Climate - 2018 Conference Promo & Recap


Along with my colleagues at Connect4Climate, we worked with the team at the World Bank who were organizing the 2018 Innovate4Climate conference to create an animated promotional video in the months preceding and a full recap video after the conference ended.



As part of the Connect4Climate team at the World Bank, I've created a slate of promotional videos to help raise awareness about our different initiatives: All4theGreen, Uniting4Climate, Fashion4Climate, Film4Climate, Sport4Climate, Youth4Climate, and more.  These videos include a mix of footage I’ve shot with clips from our archive.  I also put together an annual recap video showcasing the incredible work Connect4Climate does to accelerate climate action.

Adventure Capital is a series about a disgraced Wall Street Analyst who decides to exploit Nerd Culture for his own profit.  Dead Pan Alley brought me on to create this video for what resulted in a successful crowd-funding campaign to raise $17,000 for their pilot episode.  The pilot is currently in production. - Climate, Jobs & Justice NYC Forum

directed, edited & filmed BY KAIA ROSE

As part of 350's Divest New York movement, I was asked to film a Forum where the New York City Advocate and Comptroller were invited to talk to citizens about the city's commitment to divest from fossil fuels.  After filming the 3 hour event along with interviews, I edited together a video that told the story of the evening and was used by 350 to promote their Divestment campaign.

A feature film shot in the UK, The Fold is about Anglican priest Rebecca Ashton who, struggling with her grief,  tries to replace her deceased daughter with another girl.   I accompanied the production on location in Cornwall and Bristol as a one-woman band, conducting and filming all interviews myself and then creating two Behind-the-Scenes films for the London-based production house, Electric Shadow Company.


ArthurCox - Making of 8 minutes idle

directed and edited by kaia rose

Based upon Matt Thorne's award-winning novel about life in a call centre, 8 minutes idle is a warped urban comedy about what it really means to put your life 'on hold'.  This low budget feature was produced by Sarah Cox and directed by Mark Simon Hewis, funded as part of Creative England's iFeatures scheme.  The film was shot entirely on location in Bristol and I joined them on set to create the official Behind-the-Scenes film.

ArthurCox - Making of A Time Traveller's Guide to Bristol

directed and edited by kaia rose

A Time Traveller's Guide to Bristol is a digital archive project produced by ArthurCox that focuses on seven locations in the city of Bristol, looking at how they've evolved over the last 100 years.  Drawing upon footage found in the BBC archives, the Bristol City Council Archives and donated by the citizens of Bristol, this was a unique and extensive project that deserved a comprehensive Behind-the-Scenes film.
