Toronto Fundraiser Video
My classmates and I made this video to promote and raise money for Arizona State University's AIGA student group spring break trip to Toronto. We recorded the footage in our studio at ASU. I worked with my group to make animations on the footage, design the lower thirds, and edit the video. Our fundraiser was successful and we were able to raise over $14,000 with our campaign, using the video on our page and posts.
"Each year, AIGA, the professional association for design at ASU, organizes a spring break trip for graphic design students to travel to a major city during spring break to visit marketing agencies, creative studios, branding studios, and other design-related agencies. In years before, we have traveled to New York, Chicago, San Francisco, and more. Last year, we traveled internationally to London, UK and this year we will travel internationally again, to Toronto, Canada. In order to make the trip affordable for students, we fundraise money through PitchFunder to take care of accommodation costs and local public transportation costs.
The design program at ASU requires an internship after the third year is completed. This spring break trip to Toronto is intended to help students make professional connections and ideally, to earn internships in the city that we visit. Many of the studios we’ve already connected with in planning our tours have expressed interest in taking on interns from our program!"
