Southside Cultural Center Kickstarter Video

In JWU’s Digital Media Solutions Team class, students are matched up with non-profit organizations to provide design services that the organizations would not be able to afford otherwise. For my project, my partner and I were tasked with creating a website and Kickstarter video for the Southside Cultural Center in Providence, RI. The SCC’s vision is to offer a wide range of music, dance, theater, and visual arts classes and performances to people of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds. I was in charge of the Kickstarter planning and deliverables. The goal of the Kickstarter campaign is to raise enough money for the SCC to purchase professional lighting for their theater. Over the course of eight weeks, I conducted client interviews with the volunteers who served as stakeholders and planned site visits where I took photos of the building. I also organized, led, and filmed during a four hour production session with a team of five students and one professor, and was responsible for all post-production editing. I was given some pictures of past events, a logo for the fundraising event, script and audio track to work with at the start of the project, which I worked into my storyboards and shot list. In the end, I was able to deliver a 30 second long teaser video that was used as promotion for a May 6th, 2013 fundraising event, and a two-minute long full-length version that was debuted at the fundraiser.
