Behind The Scenes: WaKIDS
A few weeks back we teamed with members of the Washington State Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) and project partner Classic Ink to craft a film centered around a rapidly growing program; WaKIDS. WaKIDS is incredible program that establishes a strong relationship between parent and teachers and many others during the important transition from early learning to Kindergarten. Forging an understanding of every student before they even enter the school on day one.
Our two teams collaborated on telling a compelling and informative story. We developed a smart story arc and visual plan while the WaKIDS team identified super schools across the state, interviewees, and early adopters of the program to head out on location.
We chose to shoot with 2 5D Mk IIIs. I t allowed us the flexibility of moving into classrooms with little impact on the young students. These cameras along with a small grip truck and a slider yielded a sharp interview look as well.
Keep an eye out for the work in early November.
