Roswell Day of Hope is an annual event put together by Hope Roswell (http://www.hoperoswell.org/) and a group of churches in Roswell, Georgia. This event is created to help those in the community that live below the poverty level. Yes, there are plenty of fun things at the event, like a kids play area, entertainment on the stage, giveaways, and lunch for all. But there are plenty of great services as well. There are doctors to assist with health needs, business professionals to help with resumes, hairstylists providing hair cuts, safety workers teaching on the new child safety standards, and plenty more. All of this is free to the community. It really is, "...a way to explain love to the people."
For this project I was given the footage, the ending graphic, and the audio. I was asked to come up with a celebration video that goes with the song and shows all of the great things that happened at Roswell Day of Hope so they can share it with the volunteers, churches, and locals that made this day possible.
I love what Wiphan does and was blessed to travel with them to Zambia to film what they do. This video explains what Wiphan is all about. While there, I got to film stories of so many lovely Zambians and I look forward to sharing them. If you love what Wiphan does and you want to get involved, please visit http://www.wiphan.org
The Landing is a youth support gathering at Fellowship Bible Church and they wanted to let the church as a whole and the local community know what they're doing to help those who are struggling with the tougher situations in life. I was blessed by the chance to tell the stories of these awesome people!
Fellowship Bible Church was selected to find a recipient for the Recycled Rides giveaway. Recycled Rides takes cars that have either been flooded or in an accident to the point of insurance claiming it totaled. The totaled cars that are restorable are given to car repair centers and then the staff donate their time to completely restore these cars...they're like new when they're done! They then team up with local religious organizations and charities to give these cars to families who need them. Everyone was moved that day.
I filmed the b-roll, filmed the interview with Pete Olsen, and helped shoot on the day of the giveaway, was given the footage from Monica, then edited it for FBC to use as part of their Generosity Initiative. Recycled Rides and Sterling Autobody loved it so much they also requested use of the video as they share what they do. I love that I can support such generous organizations!
The Stewardship Director at Fellowship Bible Church asked Cindi and I to go with him when he visited Joy and Katherine so we could film their story. The story we were told we were going to film and the story that came out were quite different. So we reorganized our plan for how the video would be used in the church. The story these ladies told ended up being so rich in faithfulness and fearlessness we used it to kick off the big generosity initiative. The ladies did not expect that and were so honored that God could use them in that way. They set an amazing example that inspired many others in the church to take action without fear.
On this shoot I ran audio, I helped guide the interview/conversation, and edited it. This was done a few years ago.
