The time and effort of volunteers and staff, through the Annual Campaign, ensures that everyone, regardless of circumstance or ability to pay, can benefit from the YMCA’s programs. There are so many personal stories about how the Coppell Family YMCA is more than just a gym and what an impact it makes in people’s lives in our community. This video was a personal project presented at the annual kickoff dinner and is being used to introduce volunteers and potential donors to the program.
I undertook the project to learn FCPX editing software and the new Canon 70D DSLR. Recording and editing audio of the interviews was the biggest challenge and I'm convinced that a lapel mic and separate audio recorder would be essential for filming in large rooms and next to a gym.
