We filmed this promotional video for the Abraxas Leadership Development Program over a two day period earlier this summer. The CEO of the company wanted an exciting video to show at a large conference to be held by the company. The goal was to highlight and focus on their education and adventure programming.
We had the very fun task of filming (and testing out!) their on-site ropes courses, zip-lines, gardening, kayaking & hiking excursions, team building activities and much more. We were able to incorporate the use of several cinematography techniques including time-lapses, steadicams, crane/jibs, rail sliders, aerial drones, all topped off with several personal interviews and testimonials from some of their current clients.
The motto of LDP is to Experience Challenge, Experience Change, and Experience Success. It was pretty awesome to witness firsthand the youth experiencing each one of those things. I know I say this often, but it’s a blessing to be able to work with so many organizations such as Abraxas that have such a positive effect on our society. Watch the video above and let us know what you think!
