Video Stills from Samuel’s Film
If you haven’t noticed, my writing has slowed of late. I am currently in the final editing stages on two films and am shooting/writing a third. My schedule for this month and next is working to achieve a smooth flow in and out of projects. These three films are the last narrative stories I will do through video. There are two more short marketing films to shoot. I will continue to write a few more stories and will begin production on two audio podcasts while here.
Writing for pleasure has taken a backseat. The above list has consumed most of my extra mental energy. To keep you updated and give a peek at what I am working on, I figured I would share video stills and photos over the next few days.
The pictures below are frames taken from a short film telling Samuel Kwogi’s story. He is a Seed Effect client who is using his loan to make the dream of a local clinic a reality. His greatest desire to help people through medicine. Samuel is a wonderful example of how individual empowerment leads to community transformation.
The aspect ratio isn’t 16:9, so they’re a little horizontally compressed. That’s just how FCP does freeze frames by default.
