This video was created as the opening piece for the Kennedy Center Gala Event celebrating 35 years of the
Children's Defense Fund.
This video won a Silver Addy Award for Ogilvy Public Relations Worldwide. William Connell was the editor who worked closely with Executive Producer Aimee Desmarais. The piece was edited and finished in-house on an Avid Media Composer.
A key creative challenge was uniting disparate and sometimes harsh-looking video footage into an aesthetically pleasing and softer film-look. This was achieved using a range of Sapphire film and lighting effects.
