Wanderlust Productions ClienT HIGHLIGHT: 2019 Reporters Committee

The Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press provides pro bono legal representation, amicus curiae support, and other legal resources to protect First Amendment freedoms and the newsgathering rights of journalists.

CLIENT HIGHLIGHTS

For the second year, RCFP retained my services to create event collaterals for their annual awards dinner – including print and video materials.

Event Graphics

The look for the 2019 Freedom of the Press Awards Dinner was based on the unique, cohesive design from the 2018 event. With a move to a new venue – The Ziegfeld Ballroom – I updated the design to have an art deco feel similar to the space.

This was utilized across all materials, including the save-the-date, sponsorship brochure, invitations, letterhead, program, signage, and digital journal.

Videos

With five honorees receiving awards at the dinner this year, Reporters Committee wanted to control the timing of the introductions by having pre-produced videos for each recipient. With 5-8 interviews per video, they also gave a more rounded story as to why they were receiving the award.

Interviews were conducted in New York City, Washington DC, Boston and Chicago, where I served as a one-person crew. I also edited all of the videos.

Honoree: David G. Bradley

Chairman, Atlantic Media

Notable interviews included: Bob Cohn – President, The Atlantic; Jeffrey Goldberg – Editor in Chief, The Atlantic; Margaret Low – President, AtlanticLIVE; Theo Padnos – Journalist and Author; Nancy Curtis – Mother of Theo Padnos; Diane Foley – Mother of James Foley/Founder and President, James W.
