Where Would You Be Without Your Library? 2012
Using the power of a nimble and simple DSLR set up, I directed, shot and edited this video to help with fundraising for the MN Spear Library in Shutebury, MA. Shortly after posting the video online, Boing Boing featured it on their website under the headline, "Tiny library raises money with tiny uke and awesome video." It then caught the attention of writer Neil Gaiman who described it as "the best library video ever." From there on it landed on Oprah, Huffington Post, The Boston Globe, The New Yorker Blog, as well as a slew of other online outlets. Even better --- it helped raised over 80K in donations from library lovers worldwide.
Additional footage filmed by Sarah Wentworth.
