Campbellton, NB quickly surprised me. Rick Hutchinson (Hutchinson Creative Communication) seems to be the meeting point of a lot of cool things. He connected me with Shiretown – northern New Brunswick’s brewery. We decided to come up with a simple ad, and this is what we got:
When my friends were nominated for Music NB awards we decide to make some videos to help spread the word. I showed up in the afternoon, we came up with a few ideas, shot them, edited them, and made a youtube account to upload them, all within a couple days. I actually like this little project.
I pitched this idea in an interview and then spent my summer making it. I interviewed people around the province and made a video to help promote the NBFA’s Art Bond.
In hindsight, I’d say it’s a little too long. And I want to call it a “Video Essay” now, because I’m a little uncomfortable with the lack of non-interview footage. But I like the ideas, I like the flow, and I had a great time putting it together.
I also left them smaller segments from some of the interviews to continuously upload for a few months after I left, but they never made it up. The explanation of the Art Bond is on the YouTube channel though.
I wish I could do this sort of thing for the rest of my life…
