I noticed during the holiday weekend the video I produced for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation of East Tennessee reached 10,000 views on YouTube.
Since starting my own freelance business, this the video project where I learned the most and found the most rewarding.
Cystic fibrosis is the most common inherited disease among white newborns in the United States, with a 1 in 2,500-3,500 occurrence rate. There is still no cure for CF and children suffering from it often have to take 20-30 pills a day. While the life expectancy for those with CF has increased in the last few decades, the median survival age today is only 40.
If you haven't seen it before, please check it out.
And you can donate to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation of East Tennessee here.
I shot this video last Memorial Day, but I wanted to share it again as a small way to thanks to all the veterans who helped give us the freedom we enjoy in our country.
If you're every in the Knoxville area, a stroll around the East Tennessee State Veterans Cemetery can be both inspiring and humbling.
As promised in my previous blog post, here is the completed highlight video from the wondering wedding of Kayla and J.D. Botner.
I experimented a little more with the effects on this edit, but hopefully it doesn't distract from the moments captured from the day.
Thanks again to the Botners, Chapmans, Byrnes and Whaleys for hiring me to capture their special days this fall. I can't wait to shoot the next one!
