Filmed over the course of more than a year, this branded documentary offers a look at a public art project that came about as a result of a Winthrop University professor's efforts to give art students a real-world, working experience that challenged them, made a tangible impact on the world, and got them paid.
The professor, Shaun Cassidy, says he’s "not interested in perpetuating the model of a starving artist working in a garage." He teaches students that "they have creative capacities, and that creative capacity is valuable."
Winthrop has received a wealth of positive response to the video, including interest from potential partners in future projects, art students seeking similar experiences, and potential donors looking to get involved.
I conceived of the project, and I wrote, directed, filmed, edited, color graded, motion designed, sound designed, mixed and mastered the video.
