Margaret Cheatham Williams

Margaret Cheatham Williams

Former Staff, Intern and Producer

Margaret Cheatham is currently finishing her degree at UNC Chapel Hill, where she is studying Journalism + Mass communication and French.

She spent this past summer as a video intern at The Washington Post, where she completed numerous daily assignments and internal productions. During her time at UNC, Margaret Cheatham participated in award winning group projects in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and Little Switzerland, N.C., as a photographer, videographer and multimedia producer.

She is drawn to stories that incorporate family, relationships, and the universal quest for connection. She has an insatiable curiosity piqued by dilapidated structures, the outdoors and expansive spaces.

Her work has been recognized by the Hearst Foundation, Best of Photography, Pictures of the Year International, the National Press Photographers Association, the Online News Association, and College Photographer of the Year.

Margaret was a spring intern at MediaStorm in 2012. Here is what she had to say about that experience:

My time at MediaStorm was fundamental to my career, and informed every step of my trajectory. At MediaStorm, I learned a system of organization and workflow that has been the bedrock of every project I undertake. I also learned an appreciation for the art of storytelling, and appreciated Brian and the team's approach to each and every piece - They were patient, deliberate, and thoughtful with narrative and with the people they encountered in the process. In many ways, it was a lesson in persistence and excellence, as every step was taken to ensure everything published was worthy of the character.

After I finished with MediaStorm, I set out to LA where I was the first video intern of the LA Times. I now am a producer, filmmaker and editor with the New York Times.
