I wrote, produced and directed this fund-raising video for the Grameen Foundation, a non-profit organization in the U.S. committed to expanding the reach of microfinance lending across the developing world. I flew out a DP from the states, but otherwise worked with a local crew in and around Bangalore, India.
The shoot consisted of 3 days of location scouting, followed by 3 days of shooting, sometimes taking us over 70km into the countryside. We flew a camera and camera crew out of Mumbai, and worked with a fantastic "fixer" (local producer) in Bangalore, who translated while filming and procured the remainder of the crew locally.
FYI, the target audience (high-dollar investors) is, for the most part, very knowledgeable about the microfinance industry, so this video focuses on the business aspects of microfinance. That said, I tried to make it as engaging as possible, given the inherently boring nature of the content!
