River Reactions

River Reactions from Kevin Co on Vimeo.

Here is a video I recently did a finish edit for the Yukon River Inter-Tribal Watershed Council. This was a fun gig to work on. Rough chunks of the video had already been assembled, and I was asked at the last moment (just over 24 hours!) to come in and tie everything together with editing, graphics, music, and additional testimony. This is not an optimal way to get quality work done, but I always welcome a creative challenge and a good cause. Kudos to Multinesia Productions and Monty Worthington for giving me solid material to work with.

If you or your organization is having a multi-media emergency (like an imminent grant deadline), give us a call.

Here is the synopsis for the video: The Yukon River has been the lifeline of the First Nations and Tribes of Alaska's interior for thousands of years. In 2005, Toshiba offered the Native Village of Galena an experimental nuclear reactor for "free". In this video, we hear reactions of the tribes of the Yukon River to the proposed nuclear reactor.

Hoop Convergence 2008

2008 Hoop Convergence HD from Groovehoops on Vimeo.

What happens when you get 50 of America's best hula-hoopers together for a week to share tricks, strategies and moves? The world's fist international Hoop Convergence! Here's a short video that I shot and produced for the event. It was a blast to capture so many wonderful performances on tape, and then interview everyone in beautiful North Carolina. I especially enjoyed have a collaborator in the project -- Stephan over at Groovehoops in NYC did the post-production work. That's the way it ought to be. I'm honored to have been able to work and play with so many great people. Enjoy!
