Big Dreams and Small Directors was one of our studios stellar photo sessions of 2017. We had the opportunity to work with young film directors, in an ad campaign, that all started with a very cool concept from Stern Advertising's creative team and an incredible amount of great energy from everyone involved.
We took 4 kids, young film makers, and our assignment was to make each of them look like their big time film director idols.
We had fantastic stylists, art direction, props, film crew and everyone was donating their time to work with Michael J Fox, in helping to find a cure for Parkinson's disease.
The Kids Film It Festival, started with a vision from fourteen-year-old Ryan Levine. Ryan's grandmother was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease and Ryan wanted to find a way to help. He decided to pair his filmmaking dream with his philanthropic passion and that mission led to the creation of the Kids Film It Festival. This is a festival of films made by kids and affords kids and young people with the opportunity to showcase their work. All proceeds go to the Michael J. Fox Foundation to benefit Parkinson's Research.
This is the second year that the International Kids Film It Festival was held in Cleveland, Ohio at the iconic Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. It's amazing to see what these young filmmakers came up with, check out the films. George Lucas and Michael J. Fox both tweeted how much they loved the photography campaign we designed. Thanks everyone for your participation, donation of time and efforts for Parkinson's Research.
Give me a great cause and I will be there to help.
