Fundraiser Video for Piers Park Sailing Center

I’m proud to unveil my latest work, a profile video about Piers Park Sailing Center in East Boston, MA.  This past weekend, the fine folks at PPSC screened the video at their fundraising event All Hands on Deck at the Fairmont Hotel in downtown Boston.  I also produced a web version for PPSC for use on their website and Facebook page.

As in the case of the recent video I edited for Chicago Yacht Club’s Neil Clinic, the material for the PPSC video came from a variety of sources.  I shot the standup interviews with Bob Martin, Maureen McKinnon-Tucker and Mike Baxter with my Canon 7D.  The rest of the material came from news clips, youtube videos and photos.  Unfortunately not all of it is HD material and the budget and timeline for the project did not allow for detailed upscaling and color correction to match them up.  Still, I think PPSC’s strategy of using a mashup of source material allows the video to tell the whole story of the organization, without blowing their entire budget on video production.
