          • Lowell is: Thriving


            from Joey Sylvester / Added

            Officially commissioned by the city of Lowell, MA Completed in SIX DAYS! The title "Lowell is: Thriving" was decided from day one, and served as the foundation for everything you see. I am a born and raised Lowell native who possesses a deep passion for both my work and my home. In one hand, creating something to give Lowell the light it deserves felt like a personal challenge. In another, having filmed about 45 minutes of footage and cutting it down to 15 seconds is a very painful process. I suppose when time permits I will work on a longer version mixed in with some animation and a story so that everyone may witness the beauty this city has to offer. Best of luck to all the other participants!
