THRIVING CITIES DIGITAL MULTIMEDIA:  

At Thriving Cities, we often pushed the envelope of storytelling and data communication with many digital video products and multimedia prototypes. Below are a few selected examples:

THRIVING CITIES CASE STUDY 2017  |  CROSSTOWN CONCOURSE IN MEMPHIS: REAL ESTATE AND CREATIVE PLACEMAKING TOWARD SOCIAL CHANGE

(NOTE:  To view this digital Case Study “Story Map” you must take this link to ArcGIS’s website here:  http://https://arcg.is/0u0bS8)

This case study was part of TC’s “New-Paradigm Enterprise” case study series in 2017.  My focus was on a  DIGIAL ‘STORY MAP’ ABOUT CROSSTOWN CONCOURSE (CXC) in Memphis — a 1.5 million sq. ft. vacant Sears Building undergoing a radical historic renovation with social justice and creative placemaking at its core.  This “Story Map” multimedia case study (built on ArcGIS’ Platform) features 11 videos, interactive animations, maps, and text.  (Production Note: I produced and filmed all footage, including 18 interviews with stakeholders and city leaders like Mayor Strickland. I researched, wrote, scripted, and supervised all the content, and hired a part-time animator for motion graphics and editing support.)

I’ve linked to a few selected video/slides from this project below:

THRIVING CITIES CASE STUDY 2016  |  American Underground in Durham, NC: Startup incubator for the greater good 

This case study featured an EXPERIMENTAL DIGITAL TIMELINE with 20 video elements and text in chronological order that tells the story of an innovative and community-minded tech hub, American Underground (AU) in Durham.  This  AU TIMELINE  (a Knightlabs Platform) is one of three components of the overall Case Study project.   It features numerous filmed interviews with start-up founders, local leaders like Mayor Bell, and features how Chief Strategist Adam Klein, his staff, and the Goodman Family made this “New-Paradigm Social Enterprise” come to life.   (I produced and filmed all footage, including 16 interviews with stakeholders and city leaders. I researched, wrote, scripted, and supervised all the content, designed most visuals, and hired a part-time animator for motion graphics and editing support.)

Above:  AU Case Study Trailer/Preview Video:  This video served as a “preview/sizzler” for the whole project and was key for this and other customer relationships.  AU’s owners and chief strategist used this video content often for their own branding and storytelling, including as a link in their own email signature.  It also led to the commissioning of a large internal Mural which can be found on my Design page. 

Also, American Underground used this video as an Augmented Reality (AR) display video — they printed postcards with an image that, when viewed in their new AR app, showed our Thriving Cities Case Study video.
