Project: In 2015, the University of Florida's Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation brought nine students and three faculty members to Haiti to work with small business owners. I was one of those students. The students, in two teams, met via phone and Skype with their entrepreneurs for six weeks prior to the trip.
Once in Haiti, we worked on developing business plans, financial projections and operating models with the entrepreneurs.
The purpose of this video is to demonstrate to potential students the opportunities they have to make change by enrolling in this program.

Production Notes: This was a particularly challenging production since I was in Haiti to coach small business owners, not to document the visit. I shot the entire project with a single camera and single lens. The experience taught me to produce a story using the barest of essentials.
