Editor: Final Cut 7
Graphics: Photoshop CS5
Primary Role: Producer
Sun Sounds of Arizona is a local non-profit that provides access to printed materials, primarily periodicals and local newspapers, that the visually impaired otherwise wouldn’t have access to. I was asked to lead a team of two photographers and one editor to produce a 5-7 minute promotional video for the organization. For this, we used a documentary-style approach and gathered interviews from listeners of the service as well as volunteer readers.
As this was a group project, production came with compromises, even though I was the producer. The introduction is not as unique as I had wanted it to be. My vision for the intro was to open on a first-person POV shot of everyday life with an emphasis on reading things like the newspaper. The rest of the group decided against it and we went with a more generic-style opening. I guess you can’t win them all.
In the end, Sun Sounds was very happy with this video, and it will be used to engage potential donors and volunteer readers.
