Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
Recently I produced, shot, and edit a Meals on Wheels training video. I'm proud of this video because in addition to being a great training too for Meals on Wheels volunteers, the video has a lot of heart. I collaborated with the client to edit the script writing/storyboard. We shot interview and b-roll over 2 days, and then I edited. The whole process took a couple of months, working back and forth with the client.
