Hey there, my name is Caitlin. I am a photographer and videographer living right here in Denver, Co and I love what you guys are doing at Denver Rescue Mission. I have several dear friends who work in different parts of The Mission and it has been a joy to hear about how your guys are transforming lives.
Ok, I'll cut straight to the chase - I want to work with you guys. I would love to produce videos that are compelling, and hopeful - telling stories of those who have found help - be it the most basic of needs like shelter and food, or those who have graduated from programs such as STAR.
Storytelling is so powerful. But when it comes to investment and need, having a cool video isn't really valuable in-and-of-itself. Visual content must lead the viewer to see someone, and then do something. Below are a few samples of videos that I think accomplish various aspects of what makes quality videos valuable and worth it.
I was honored to travel with Arrowroot Clothing to Honduras where they are partnered with Mi Esperanza - an organization that provides women with tools and resources to break the cycle of poverty. Together, they make beautiful dresses and are literally saving lives. It's beautiful. I came along to photograph for both organizations, as well as shoot a behind-the-scenes video at what their collaboration looks like.
This is one video from a series of pieces I did for an insurance company in Texas. The content of this video isn't applicable, but the interview style and the impact of good b-roll shots throughout are.
This is a video I made for a local apothecary last fall. The catch here is just story story story. We wanted to educate viewers about what an apothecary is and what they offer. But we chose to skip the interview shots, and show engaging footage of these ladies doing what they love.
I hope you will consider sitting down over a cup of coffee with me (my treat) if you ever find yourselves in need of some fresh work. I so appreciate you taking the time to look at this page.
