lesser known series


Agency: Substance Media Agency
Producer/Writer/Editor: Margie Nguyen


As Producer and Editor for the 'Lesser Known' series, I spearheaded a social media campaign at Substance Media Agency, dedicated to spotlighting often overlooked pioneers in the entertainment industry. Leading the initiative from conception to completion, I independently selected subjects, conducted thorough research, and played a hands-on role in creating impactful videos. While actively contributing to multiple productions, I also assumed the leadership role, ensuring the project's cohesive vision and successful execution, overseeing a team of three junior editors. The campaign aimed to engage audiences and boost Substance Agency's social media following.

samples series


Agency: Substance Media Agency
Producer/Writer/Editor: Margie Nguyen

As a pivotal contributor to Substance’s social media campaign, I took the reins in curating a captivating video series that delved into the fascinating backstory of songs and their sampled sources. In each thoughtfully crafted episode, I unraveled the common audio shared by two or more songs, occasionally offering valuable insights into the intricate art of music sampling. As the Producer and Editor, I selected subjects and topics, conducting in-depth research to ensure each episode resonated seamlessly with our audience. Additionally, I mixed all of the audio for all my episodes, adding a distinct touch to enhance the overall viewer experience.

'Culture Forward' is a compelling series that illuminates the vibrant tapestry of diverse traditions, contemporary movements, and the intersection of cultures.
