This video was originally produced for projection on three 20'x30' screens…so it loses much of its visual impact at this size, but the story is compelling enough for me to include it here.
The question being discussed is the place and relevance of a Christian voice in the arts. I was in New York City and interviewed a couple of highly influential leaders in the dialogue about Art and Faith.
Makoto Fujimura (http://www.makotofujimura.com/bio) is an artist, writer, and speaker who is recognized worldwide as a cultural shaper. A Presidential appointee to the National Council on the Arts from 2003-2009, Fujimura served as an international advocate for the arts, speaking with decision makers and advising governmental policies on the arts. He is the founder of the International Arts Movement in New York.
Gordon Pennington, former director of marketing for Tommy Hilfiger, is an international consultant to corporations, governments and institutions. As a lecturer on cultural communications, Pennington has spoken at the annual International Arts Movement conference in New York, and has addressed screenwriters on the theme of "Culture and Media Influence" for the Act One Screenwriters program. He has lectured at Cambridge, Oxford, Columbia, Princeton, Yale, and several other universities. He currently serves with Burning Media Group in New York. http://www.burningmediagroup.com
Frustrated by the tactics and business practices of big telecom companies, Jim Butler launched TeleChoice—a telecom solutions service that provides boutique-like services to customers who want an alternative to the mega-telecom companies.
Our client wanted two different videos using the footage from one interview. This video tells the "behind the scenes" story of TeleChoice—a telecom solutions service that functions differently. The bottom line isn't just the bottom line—TeleChoice is changing lives.
Check out "The TeleChoice Promo" to see how we repurposed the same information for the client's website.
