Yesterday my hubby was shooting a very unique video. The organization Street Grace helps raise awareness of child sex trafficking in the Atlanta area (I’ve mentioned them before). They have a booth at this year’s “Celebrate Freedom” free concert held by the local Christian radio station, The FISH. Over 45,000 people will be there including groups like Switchfoot, Natalie Grant, and KJ52. It’s huge.
Street Grace gets a 30 second spot on their jumbotron that gets to be played six times. Here’s the challenge. The Fish requires that the video be “family friendly.” So, how do you create a video that raises awareness of child sex trafficking in a family friendly way?
If anyone could figure it out, my DH can. And did. He created a very funny, silent movie style script of a dasterdly villain (in black top hat, fake mustache and long cape) who tries to steal a little girl’s white rose.
Of course he brought the roses home to me and I used them for my daily photo… below. The above image was taken by him on set.
Many thanks to the actors who donated their time to make the video: Tripp Crosby who played the hero, friend and neighbor Tom Schulte who played the villain, and Teen Identity team member Meg as the girl.
