The Alaskan Wilderness League needed to maximize their budget for an awareness campaign containing both print and a 30 minute video. They were in need of new video assets for a multitude of projects and could not afford to hire an expensive production company and a print design shop, both of which require multiple people to accomplish multiple tasks.
Both transplants and natives were interviewed to tell the emotional story of America’s Rainforest and why it is important to protect and preserve the natural resources found there. Over the course of a 12-day shoot in the Tongass (the only remaining Temperate Rain Forest in the U.S) and with help from a hired guide, one key person per day was located and interviewed along with hours of high-quality, very descriptive b-roll which could have easily taken weeks to obtain considering footage included extensive coverage of clear-cut forests,
Alaskan Brown Bears, Timber Wolves, Sockeye Salmon, a mother Black Bear with cubs and Bald Eagles. Based on client input the interviews were written and directed once each subject made themselves available (many are off the grid and nearly impossible to reach).
Coming in under budget and on schedule, I delivered a 30m awareness video complete with branding designed using elements from the native culture found in the Tongass. The satisfied client was presented with everything they wanted including an itemized library of all the footage obtained.
