Robin Hood - New Americans (2014)
This project was an exercise in pressure, speed, and precision scheduling.
For the Robin Hood Foundation's gala, there was a film about immigration and naturalization that was being shown, but in the mean time, there were men and women being naturalized. So the production team filmed this process and the footage was rushed to me and my co-editor. In a matter of hours, we cut and roughly mixed this film, got a one-chance approval from board member, Mark Bezos, and ran the export to the A/V team for projection. After our film screened, the lights turned on and the newly-naturalized citizens were standing on stage.
The end result was a standing ovation and a very emotional, spontaneous moment that very few galas will ever experience.
