This project was a chance to try some new creative techniques, including the use of several projectors and design-oriented graphics. Utilizing films from last year's Midwest Independent Film Festival, we cut together footage with visually engaging elements, recognizable talent, and vibrant colors. Produced after-hours and on weekends, this passion project took over 6 months to complete. Every single person involved was a part of this wonderful project for no pay.
