We traveled to Nigeria for this short web spot, where we wrote, directed, and edited this web spot for Cornerstone of Hope Orphanage. The story is pretty inspiring – the orphanage’s founder, Eric Idehen grew up there, then moved to Iowa and donated his old home to be converted into a place for abandoned children.
The organization used our video to help show existing donors the work being done with their funds, and to encourage new donors to invest via social media and live events.
We wrote, directed, shot, and edited this video – all in a week – for a client promoting Sapphire Lake – a new lakefront development in Grinnell, Iowa.
We shot drone footage of the future site of the lake, interviewed city officials, and got the backstory from the founders about their exciting new project.
In this sequel to our initial short narrative ad for Northwest Iowa Development, we catch up with our protagonist as he adapts to life with his new job in Iowa. As with the original, I composed the music, co-directed, and co-shot the web spot
with Paul David Benedict and Eric Allan, who starred in it. It was released in conjunction with another ad that focuses on improvements to the main character’s family life in Iowa.
