I created this video for work to raise awareness of the need for clean water. The scenes with the cups of water were shot using a 5D Mark II and the background was made using a stack of Vellum paper that I leaned against a wall to create a "Cyc wall" effect. It was lit using a homemade light box and a 1000 watt craftsmen work light. It's all I had available when the idea came to me. The b-roll is the work that OBI does around the world to help bring clean water to those in need.
Here's the background on the need for this cause video:
1 in 6 people do not have access to clean drinking water. Approximately every 14 seconds, someone dies from a disease brought on by unsafe drinking water. Of the estimated 42,000 deaths each week from diseases related to unclean drinking water and poor sanitation, more than 90 percent of the victims are children. Sadly, many of their deaths could have been prevented had proper sanitation and clean water been available.
Take action and stop this cycle of suffering. You can help by donating, sharing this video, and spreading awareness of this dire need. Together we can solve it.
