One In 8 Million
February 2, 2012
The first shoot of 2012 happened at the Mercedes plant in Vance, Alabama. I was there with Allen Rosen of Allen Rosen Productions and Brad Glanzrock of Homefront Communications to interview, videotape, and photograph an auto worker for the Auto Alliance, which is in the midst of creating a campaign that highlights the economic contributions of the auto industry and its 8 million workers to the U.S. economy. So Allen brilliantly lit the scene for video, I created still images and Brad interviewed Christina, who works on the line at the plant. Christina was a natural on camera and had a lot of fun with the crew as she explained what her job at the plant meant to her and her family. Then we went out on the line with her and watched as she expertly weaved her way in and out of vehicles as she helped work on sunroofs, seals and other parts of vehicles that most of us just take for granted. It’s a fascinating process–both producing vehicles and producing content!
