Snow Day

Please describe what drove your creativity: 
Snow Day was filmed in Maplewood, NJ, in February 2013, the day after storm Nemo dumped historic amounts of snow across the northeastern United States. My aim was to create a short GoPro video that would capture the essence of that day. Knowing there were many ways to approach this, I attached the GoPro to the end of a broomstick to simulate moves usually achieved by a jib or crane. I held it up high for the overhead shots, and down low for the foot level moves. Of course there's always a challenge when working with children (as any parent who has tried to direct photos or movies of their kids can confirm). I had to look for opportunities throughout the day, and be very patient!
Please describe how you will use the prize if you win: 
I have a number of personal projects I would like to tackle. If I were to win, hands down I would use the prize to help bring the vision of my personal projects to light! Fingers crossed!
