During the past few weeks, the Birchrun Hills Farm group has been working diligently with Sue Miller to crank out the final product for her Kickstarter video. As described in the last post, Birchrun Hills Farm is a family owned and operated dairy farm located in the heart of Chester Springs, Pennsylvania. Working towards a deadline in early November, the Birchrun Hills Farm group knew that they had a major production day ahead. This included to filming, editing, and compiling a 3-5 minute video under compressed timelines. After setting up a strategy, the group headed out to the countryside to capture Sue and her family in their natural environment: the farm. With multiple cameras, the group captured as much footage as they could. After a very successful and tiring day, the group headed home with a good feeling about how the final product would turn out. The group had only great things to say about their filming experience, as Sue was incredibly cooperative and helpful.
About a week later, the group of 5 split up into two smaller groups to travel into Philadelphia, PA, to interview two individuals who would speak on Sue's behalf for the Kickstarter video. Emilio Mignucci of Di Bruno Brothers, a cheese shop located in the Italian Market and Ann Karlen, Executive Director of Fair Foods, a farm stand located inside of Reading Terminal Market, met with the two groups to give their support for Sue's Kickstarter project in the form of an interview. The interviews would be edited and then implemented into Sue’s Kickstarter video.
While the traveling and scheduling aspects of the project posed some obstacles, the group was able to plan, and divide and conquer, allowing them to make a complete video. The video has since been uploaded to Sue’s Kickstarter page and her donations have already begun rolling in. Interested in the success of The Birchrun Hills Farm Kickstarter campaign?
