Evans Scholars Foundation
Nonprofit Video

For the second consecutive year, Motion Source produced a video for the Western Golf Association, benefitting their nonprofit organization, the Evans Scholars Foundation. Each year, the video premiers at their annual Green Coat Gala fundraising event, giving Evans Scholars an opportunity to share their story. This year’s event featured one scholar’s incredible journey from foster homes as a child to Purdue University as a college freshman.

The idea was always to create an authentic, docu-style feel, by capturing genuine moments. We made the decision to capture natural sound so that the audience not only sees, but can hear, intimate moments. The shooting style of the video mirrored this as well. Utilizing a 2:35 widescreen aspect ratio with occasional, but intentional, 120 FPS (frames per second) slow-motion shots to draw the audience in, we were able to heighten the video in an emotionally cinematic way.
