I recently produced this video about street puppeteer Ricky Syers and community activist Doris Diether. Their unconventional friendship is heartwarming and inspiring. Produced for AARP, it has become their most popular piece of online content ever!
The Facebook version of the video has been viewed almost 6 Million times so far. But even before the video found success, I was really happy with this video as perhaps my favorite one I’ve ever made.
There’s a new Mazda commercial that prominently features my portrait of digital camera inventor Steven Sasson. Take a look!
Update six months later: It’s come to my attention that the video has been switched to “private” so you can’t see it. Then I remembered that I originally licensed the photo to Mazda for just six months usage. So good on them for proactively taking it down when the license expired, and shame on me for not thinking to reach them to see if they want to renew the license earlier. I’m adding that to my to-do list now.
I’ll leave this post here for posterity, and for simplicity if the video comes back.
