I just returned a from Robert Evans studio in LA where we made four videos to promote the upcoming WPPI convention in 2009 as well as to raise donations for two very worthy charities: Thirst Relief International & Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep. Cinematic studios produced a reality TV mini series for the Web starring "24 of the hottest professional photographers in the industry". The series is this year's pre-WPPI buzz builder.
We were split into two teams and given 24 hours to complete a "mystery" assignment. With collaborative effort and support from our amazing sponsors (Microsoft Expression Media 2, Triple Scoop Music, AsukaBook, Kubota Image Tools, ShowIt Sites, Photographers' Edit, and Loktah), we were able to raise over $5000 to donate to these two wonderful charities. You will be able to view the two videos created by each team then get a chance to vote for your favorite one - the winner of the team will get a chance to donate to their representing charity. Voting will start early 2009.
