This program was created for a fundraiser for the Young Women's Leadership Charter School of Chicago. YWLCS is the only all girl school in the Chicago School District. As a Charter School, they are responsible for the bulk of the funding of the school. This was one of six programs that we were honored to create for the annual fundraiser luncheon "Girl Power."
Our Executive Producer and Interviewer was Cynthia Mufarreh. Gino Russano was our primary DP, along with Dan Lopatowski and Bill Coons for B-roll shoots. Chris Koranek was our audio technician and Katrell Mendenhall our Makeup Artist. Suzy Weimer and Bill Coons provided Editorial and graphics were designed by Ryan Aeschilman.
Primary interviews were shot with the Panasonic AF-100 with a 25mm Voigtländer Lens. B-roll was shot with a Panasonic HPX500 and HPX170. Editing was Final Cut Pro 7. Music by Dewolfe.
Creative Dynamics Studio donated 25% of the funding for this project.
