In the Spring of 2011, Laurie Zagon, founder of Art & Creativity for Healing, asked Shamrock Samurai to create a video to commemorate their 10 year anniversary and be shown at their annual fundraising gala. The organization, a non-profit that runs art therapy workshops for children, teens, and adults suffering from abuse, illness, grief or stress, supplied a decade of completed videos and a collection of candid photos as raw materials.
The challenge was all the interviews and testimonials on the supplied videos had background music, making them unusable. The solution became, shooting a new interview with Ms Zagon and using that narrative along with stock images and video clips that illustrated the stories, candid photos of workshop participants, and non-interview selections from the supplied videos.
The anniversary video was well received the night of the gala and the event raised $42,000.
