More Alike than Different
For this year’s video, Cascade Connections wanted to go beyond the traditional interview format. We wanted to create something beautiful and creative that spoke to the core values of the organization.
Together we crafted this video. A reminder that we are all part of the same community and regardless of our abilities or disabilities, we are truly more alike than we are different.
This video was used as part of a successful fundraising event and campaign. This is our second year working with Cascade Connections on their promotional and fundraising videos and I am happy to say they have both been record setting years.
All American Marine
Trade Show Loop
The Enhydra is the largest hybrid-powered passenger ferry in North America. This boat runs with zero emissions when using battery power. Our video introduces the world to this ground-breaking vessel.
All American Marine along with their partners, Teknicraft design in New Zealand, the Red and White fleet in San Fransisco, and BAE Systems, continue to raise the bar for eco-friendly vessels , I have had the pleasure of working with AAM for over 10 years, and today AAM has become a leading producer of passenger vessels and the largest commercial catamaran builder in the US.
PAWS is more than just an animal shelter. They also offer educational programs and a wildlife rescue and rehabilitation hospital. Their mission is caring for the animals that share our world with us.
And, as you will see, these animals are often really, really cute.
This video was created for the Tulalip Tribes Raising Hands event. An annual event for local non-profit organizations to meet and connect, and for the Tulalip Tribes to generously honor the good work these organizations are doing in our community.
Seattle Youth Symphony Orchestra
T his video was designed to highlight SYSO’s music education programs, and to give the audience a chance to learn about the importance of music from students, teachers, coaches and directors.
This video was created for the Tulalip Tribes Raising Hands event. An annual event where local non-profit organizations tcan meet, connect, and share resources. The event is generously hosted and funded by the Tulalip Tribes to honor the good work these organizations are doing in our community.
Norsvald Viking Ship
Polaris is a hand-crafted replica of a 35-foot Viking Ship built in Norway nearly 1,000 years ago. This boat was built using many of the old techniques and hand tools, honoring the ancient traditions.
For it’s maiden voyage, the Polaris was pulled to a beach in Anacortes by a team of Belgian horses and launched to the tune of sea shanties. My goal was to capture this historic event, and create a video that shared the “hand-crafted” feel that these traditional boat builders value.
This video was also cut to :30 and :60 second versions for Facebook and social media. However, I will always enjoy being able to relive all the details of this exceptional day.
This video was fundamental to a successful campaign demonstrating the merits of smaller homes. The goal was to preserve our neighborhoods by encouraging alternative housing options, and encourage infill rather than urban sprawl.
The video was shown at city meetings and public hearings and ultimately regulations were adjusted to encourage smaller living spaces within the City; protecting farm lands and forests while preserving our wonderful neighborhoods.
All American Marine
Trade Show Loop
Our work with All American Marine continues to take us to new and exciting places. Our latest excursion: whale watching on the Saratoga with Puget Sound Express..
Our goal was to create a video that worked both at trade shows and on the web. Since this video will be shown without sound at most trade shows, we needed to share information, while still keeping the visuals exciting for those times when there is no audio. We think our blend of drone footage, 4k video and on-board passenger experience did the trick.
Working with the team at Cascade Connections I kept hearing the phrase “everyone matters”. When it came time to make this video, I knew this was going to be a central theme.
Having worked with Cascade for several years on educational videos, this was my first opportunity to make a promotional video for the organization. I am happy to say the video has performed above expectations and it was a record breaking year for fundraising. We are already starting on the next video … stay tuned.
