One of my favorite projects I worked on was an opener I created for a women’s conference. If you never seen an opener to a conference it sets the tone and theme of what will be said during the event. It also has an impact on the attendees, out of everything they learn they will walk away remembering the video they saw, it becomes a visual memory.
The theme that year was to inspire women to have a heart ablaze. I imagined a young woman running on the beach, enjoying life as she ran with a sparkler with the conference theme narrating what it means to have a heart set ablaze. The imagery would be beautiful to shoot. It was fun to take the team to the beach that year and together make this idea come to life. Destiny was an editor on the team who looked beautiful on camera, our tech director Steven flew the drone and Cole who was our intern helped me film as I directed the scene. It was also great to see how everyone’s gift and talent came together.
When I got back to the editing table I realized I need some important shots to help tell the story. So My husband and I took Destiny to the beach again to get our ending. Together it came out beautifully. I ended up using my voice for the voice over of the video, I felt like this project came together really well.
