During the Chesapeake Climate Action Network's "Maryland Crossroads 2013" tour, director Mike Tidwell laid out the alarming case against Dominion Resources' $3.8 billion proposal to build a massive facility to liquefy and export fracked gas, right on the Chesapeake Bay, in Cove Point, Maryland. But Tidwell doesn't just point out how the Cove Point proposal will harm the state and our planet, he takes things a step further by offering effective and economically beneficial plans for clean energy alternatives. The original powerful and fact-filled speech (which I was lucky enough to hear in person) was 45 minutes long, with an accompanying slide presentation. Motus Video Design took the recording of that 45 min speech and the slides and edited it down to a digestible, but still impactful, 8 minute piece of video content that could more easily hold the attention of an online audience and be shared via social media channels. With over 400 views in just 3 weeks, his video has become a critical part of CCAN's "Stop Cove Point" campaign and has even been shown to legislators to encourage them to get onboard with the campaign's efforts without taking up too much of their hard-to-get time.
