Sweet Charities SFV found out from non profit expert Laura Levinsky, that a video submission to ABC7 could potentially earn a local charity $7,000. It was decided on our Thursday meeting 5/5 that we would produce a video for Smile On Seniors. The problem? Submission was due in by 5/12. That did not leave us much time. However, the Sweet Charities came through. We met at Linda Bruskoff’s house on Monday 5/9 and scheduled a shoot the next day at the home of Sharone Rosen. Robin Kellogg, our resident copywriter, etched out an outline. Doug Knapp, a 35 year camera operator in the motion picture biz, volunteered to shoot the video. Gabe Bruskoff, a film student, who had a short film presented at a recent film festival, came on board to edit. Sharone Rosen, a local radio announcer (chiropractor, cantor +), Laura Levinsky, Robin Kellogg, Star Tomlinson (The Drain Company) and Rebecca Olkowski (Sharp Biz Image – WordPress Blogging Help) all participated. By Thursday, the day the submission was due, the video was ready. See the finished product below. Not bad for just a couple days notice.
