How do donors influence a college? How do our new building projects reflect our values? How much input does the community have in long term planning at Calvin College?

This short documentary is the final product of my group's work for our intermediate video production class at Calvin College. We tried to capture the questions we had as Calvin students and the discussion quietly going on in the community about the new fieldhouse buildings currently under construction.

As a first stab at documentary it was an incredible learning experience. Documentary has the potential to be powerful, persuasive and artful, however, living up to that potential as a filmmaker is not so easy

Thanks to all the people that helped make this happen. Enjoy!
