My work with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Milwaukee

In addition to other branded videos, I managed the creative and editing process for the organization’s 2020 volunteer recruitment campaign video (featured on this page).

 

The project required a large amount of pre-production. For the reaction video to be a success, I had to conduct and compile 6 interconnected interviews into one short, fluid, reaction video.


I recorded the interview with the "Little" first, edited the best moments and brought the edited version to the "Big" interview. In order to produce a successful and genuine reaction video, I had to ensure the pre-recorded content was a complete surprise. By carefully positioning the microphone, directing the interviewees and working my magic on post-production, I was able to do just that.

It was a hard but very rewarding project!
