The Unspoken Battle: A Look Into College Mental Health (A Short Documentary)
For many young people in America, college is the ideal way to transition from adolescence to adulthood. A time of great change that students take at their own pace. Some for four years, some for fewer, and some for a great deal more. With so much change so suddenly in a young person’s life, it becomes very difficult to sustain one’s mental health. It seems like so much is on the line; GPA, future careers, pressure to succeed from friends and family. While college is seen as an ideal place to secure a stable life, it’s also the perfect environment for upsetting mental health. Should it be the responsibility of the universities which have cultivated this instability to help treat students seeking to improve their mental health, or does that responsibility fall back onto the students? Final project created by MaryFrances Vorbach and Megan Harper for COMM 395: Mental Health and Pop Culture.

A short documentary film about how harmful plastic, specifically plastic straws, are to the environment and how pollution negatively affects the world.

Another Miracle on Ice: A Look at the U.S. Women's Hockey Team's Journey in 2017-18
I'm MaryFrances Vorbach, and this is a Quarter Life Crisis production. In this short documentary, I explore the United States Women's Hockey Team's incredible story. I explore how this inspiring team went from boycotting the 2017 Women's World Championship to becoming Olympic Gold Medalists in 2018.
Oligopoly Music Video (AP Econ)
I edited this music video for an AP Economics project during my senior year of high school in early 2016. This was incredibly fun to make and we ended up getting an A and winning second place, out of at least 15 groups, in my teacher's competition. This was early on in my editing career, so apologies for this video being a bit rough haha. Filmed on iPhone and GoPro. Edited on iMovie. Song lyrics created by my project group and sung by group member Katherine Hales. The song is an adaptation of "Seventeen" by Alessia Cara.
