Pokemon Go Grand Rapids threw a huge event for the community to get together and play the app. The turnout was crazy and we just happened to be there to capture it on camera. This video shows that Pokemon are bringing people together. Thanks to everyone who gave us their time and input on this video.
Director's Note: "I really wanted to include more about how this app is really helping people with social anxiety by getting people out of the house and into the world. It's truly a beautiful thing to see these people along with people of every gender, ethnicity, and culture playing together in our global playground. I don't know if this was intended, but Pokemon are bringing us all together better than any platform possibly could."
We got our arial footage from from GVSU's Promotions Office and their President's Ball Video: youtube.com/watch?v=Vzztm3YDjcc
Filmed on a 5D mark iii and a 28mm prime canon lens. Used a Rode Mic and Revo Shoulder Support Rig.
Special thanks to Ben Commet for helping me catch pokemon while I was filming.
