Far Away Friends

The Overview

Uganda and Far Away Friends (FAF), a country and non-profit that quickly become near and dear to our hearts.   FAF came to us wanting us to create a killer about us video that would showcase the work they are doing in a small village called Namasale in Uganda.  Sean Korbitz and Andrew Rodriguez took to the skies and flew hours away from the U.S. to go on a trip of a lifetime.  We went on the FAF’s cultural immersion trip and we were tasked with documenting photos and videos of interviews, experiences, and lifestyles all with the need to tell a story that would touch the hearts of donors and people interested in being a part of the organization.  With equipment in hand, we shot culture and customs for the 22-day trip.

The children of Uganda are what make Far Away Friends so amazing.  We wanted to show how humble, welcoming, and loving the kids were to our arrival.

Assignment: About Us Video

Our objective was to document the children, the community members, and the experiences of the volunteers and leadership that makes up Far Away Friends(FAF). In the process, we got to know the kids, teachers, and the community members.   We documented, we listened and we learned about a culture. We built relationships with the community members.  We then brought the extensive amount of footage home and spent time piecing together a piece that would showcase the work FAF is doing.

Assignment: Document the trip

For non-profits, photos are incredibly important to have to support fundraising throughout the year.  Sean and Andrew split up the video and photo work so that each experience would have video and photo to support all our deliverables.   The moments in time created pictures of beauty that exist in Namasale and Uganda itself.
