Project objective: To create for Osprey Community Foundation a 2-minute video presenting how they help groups and individuals make an ongoing difference in their community by using donations that are pooled in a permanently-endowed fund.
Video making process: Osprey wrote the original script and I provided suggestions to make it as effective as possible in the context of a whiteboard video. Once the script finalized, I drew original illustrations including the character of Anne who is thinking of making a permanent contribution to her community. I packaged all the illustrations in a storyboard to show how they would appear with the voice-over. After a couple of rounds of feedback, we finalized the drawings and got the storyboard approved. I then recorded all the drawings from scratch again while recording myself to create the video footage (see inside the creation of my videos for more details). Finally, synchronized illustrations with the voice-over (recorded by Tina Choi) and edited the final video with background music, call-to-action and end-screen. A year later, the video was adapted for Elgin St Thomas Community Foundation, a similar organization based in Ontario. We changed a few drawings and recorded a new voice-over to create a new video customized for them.
More about Osprey Community Foundation: Osprey Community Foundation is a public, charitable foundation created by and for the people of Nelson, BC and the surrounding area. They help groups and individuals make an ongoing difference in their community. Donations to Osprey are pooled in a permanently-endowed fund – our community’s nest egg – which currently has a value of over $9 million. Each year, income generated by that capital flows back to the community in the form of grants to eligible charities and activities.
