kennedy family

assignment

A family who was in the process of adopting a new child into their family wanted to memorialize the event through video. Twice.

the plan

We were asked to document the adoption finalization hearing of two separate adoptions by the same family. Each proceeding allowed us to be present in the courtroom as the last testimonies were given and papers were signed to welcome a new member of the family. We utilized multiple cameras and independent audio capture to assure the highest quality footage.

The family also provided us with still images and videos they themselves had captured in the lead to each proceeding to include in the finished product.

the delivery

Taking all of the provided files and our own footage we set out to create a DVD that contained the hearing in its entirety, a highlight video that contained all of the provided files, and a trailer that combined elements of all footage from the project. We were also able to publish YouTube-formatted files of the trailers online for the family to share.
