School of Hard Knocks
I produced this long format documentary story that chronicles the journey of four athletes suffering from concussions at every level of sport. Through the interviews of high school, college, and former professional athletes, I sought to change attitudes about these complex head injuries. This project was turned in for my senior honors project at John Carroll University.
This project showed me that I have the ability to make a long-format story successfully. While I worked on it by myself, it showed me how much help I recieved from many people who work around me, and that a lot of what I do would not be possible without the help of my co-workers.

Ashley Bastock NBC News Desk reads
May 2014 - July 2014
by Ashley Bastock
This video is a compilation of my desk reads from the bulletin camera at NBC News Washington. These reads show my ability in writing, as I wrote the scripts myself, and also are some of my best on camera reads.
This project taught me the importance of having a strong script and also, that I need to remain conversational while on-air instead of trying to be so unnaturally professional that my on-air presence is stiff. Through the help of my mentors, I hope to improve my presence.
