Here is another project I did for Joanna Jewett and Arc of Onondaga. I filmed this projected at several in Syracuse over several months. The main point of this video is to show people the many ways that Arc of Onondaga provides assistance to disabled people in our community.
Your donations to Arc of Onondaga help pay for things like purchasing new appliances for group homes for disabled adults, it provides funding for disabled people to participate in community theater and other activities to integrate these individuals into the community.
Won’t you consider a donation to Arc of Onondaga to help them help those most in need? Thank you for your generosity.
I have recently posted a video I created for Arc of Onondaga. It is a Holiday-themed video that shows their individuals making holiday cards and sharing the joy of the season. Happy Holidays to you and your families! Have a joyous New Year!
Hi, folks! I just finished up my latest video for Arc of Onondaga.
We filmed the recent event sponsored by Dunkin Donuts. Over 2,000 people attended, with nearly 1,000 people running to help raise money for programs to assist disabled people in our community. The highlight of the event was the partner runs, where runners pushed disabled people in 3 wheeled strollers to make them part of the race.
Two local radio personalities, Amy Robbins of 93Q and Dave Frisina of 105 FM – The Rebel, both provided their talents in doing the voice over for the video. My boss Joanna Jewett will be using it as a fundraising tool for this wonderful organization. Please check out the video, linked below, and make a donation to Arc of Onondaga. Thank you!
So, I was working on a new project, and I discovered to my horror afterwards that my fancy boom microphone had failed on a recent shoot! OMG, I was devastated, on the verge of tears. There was no audio of four hours of footage!
Then, I talked to my client and a friend who helps me on my projects, and I realized, “Hey, I can do this with a voice over.” My client said they’ve never had anyone shoot this event before, and listening to people talk can be pretty boring anyway.
So I’m going to work up a script and cut it shorter than I originally intended. And now I found out that my client is approaching a couple local radio personalities who were at the event to lend a hand with the voice over!
And so suddenly, there’s lemonade!
(And, no, Beyonce, we weren’t talking about you ….) LOL
It’s all about learning from your mistakes. So next time, I will be sure to check the battery in my boom mic, and check the indicator light on the top to make sure that it’s working properly. Lesson learned. On to the next one!
Today is my first day working at Arc of Onondaga, a wonderful not-for-profit organization that provides all sorts of programs and assistance to disabled people in Central New York. I will be working for Joanna Jewett in the Public Relations Department, working on videos to promote their good work. Here is a link to their web site: https://www.arcon.org/
Also, to my entrepreneur friends: I will still be working to help start-up businesses get off the ground and get recognition and visibility for their work. I have shot four episodes of my new series of commercials for start-ups called “One Minute Start-Up”. Here is a sample for you to check out. This is Luka Negoita telling you about his company, HabitU.
In September, I will begin working Wednesdays at Syracuse Co-Works, located on Jefferson Street in Downtown Syracuse, about a block from the Tech Garden. Once we get into September, feel free to stop by to chat about your business, and let me know if there is anything I can do to help tell your story.
