Starbucks Powell Barnett Park Makeover

This video was shot and edited for Starbucks Coffee Company, documenting the makeover of Powell Barnett Park in Seattle. Starbucks took a run-down city park, and through hard work and much-needed funding, the park was transformed for neighborhood children and their families. Part of the work was documented using time lapse videography, which was very challenging, yet fun, to make over the period of weeks that the job took place.

Enjoy!

Over half of the entire population of Ethiopia does not have access to safe drinking water. In this video, we documented the work of Water1st International in villages near Ginchi, Ethiopia. You will see how women and girls must collect filthy water from streams where cattle are also drinking, and then carry the water miles back to their villages. You will also see how their lives are changed when clean water is present in their communities.

Thank you for watching. Please leave me comments on what you think of this film.
