StoryTrack Holiday Video Contest
From time to time I do creative direction and editorial work for StoryTrack, the video marketing agency that my wife Lori created and leads. The team at StoryTrack does very smart, beautiful work, using cinematic tools to tell clients' stories.
They do plenty of client work, but Lori has always worked with nonprofits.
In October she won her first regional Emmy award in the short format category, for a mini-documentary about Meds and Food for Kids (MFK), prosaically-named social entrepreneurs who work in Haiti fighting malnutrition while simultaneously doing economic development with Haitian peanut farmers. Lori has been to Haiti about five times over the past 8 years. (The Emmy winning short can be seen here.)
Anyway, the point of that intro is this: this video announces a Facebook campaign to award a free 90 second professional video production to the nonprofit group that scores the most votes. It's a fun little thing, and the contest will net somebody a very useful tool. Here's the link to the vimeo page.
The redhead in the plaid shirt is our son Andrew, who just finished interning at the company for the fall (and is headed to New York in January, reel in hand).
