Bargaining for the common good is transforming the way educators and activists advocate for public education. We conceptualized this hosted animation a to help our client bring more awareness to this powerful approach to securing the support students need to succeed. Before awareness of the pandemic took hold in the US, we identified talent to serve as our host. She unfortunately took ill. Then another actress, the same, the day before the shoot. As the lockdown took place, our plans for production were dashed and we would have to change our approach. We considered other options. We had in-house talent and the client approved of using her. And since we couldn’t book any of our regular crew, the Executive Producer’s son served as gaffer and daughter as producer. We’re thrilled to share the results and even happier to report that both of the previously scheduled actresses have recovered and are well!
