I was asked to create a short video as an overview of the work that the Community Action Partnership in Madison County, NY does for marginalized populations in our county and beyond. This video will be used mainly for fundraising and for introducing CAP’s work to the general public.

For CAP, I used selections of pictures, which are effective in presenting the main activities of CAP. I also include a background audio that will help the audience to better understand what CAP has done during the past few years. After gathering related information by interviewing CAP’s program directors and reading sufficient reports and paperwork, I interviewed three staff members who has worked at CAP for a very long time and has great stories to tell. I conduct three separate interviews with them and edited all the clips into one short film, which tells people how they feel about working in CAP and what they think people need to know about poverty in Madison County.
