All Abilities Fashion Show
Everyone in BJJTV produces at least one backpack story during the school year. A backpack story is when we work alone. There's no other staff members helping us.
For my backpack story this year I wanted to produce something heartwarming. I decided to cover the All Abilities Athletics Fashion Show.
For this story, I really wanted to let the students who set up the whole event tell the story. I conducted interviews with Sophie Hellebusch, Sophie Kortitz, and McKenzie Dohm. Sophie Hellebusch and Sophie Kortitz helped kickstart this event in their DECA class for a project. McKenzie Dohm helps with many All Abilities events. I really enjoyed interviewing these individuals and learning a lot more about this amazing event.
For b-roll, I used photo and videos from people who attended the event so we could have a good feel of what took place at the event. Unfortunately, the event had passed before I decided to do this story, so I couldn't go back in time to film it. Luckily, it was well documented by those in attendance.
I hope you enjoy this story and may even get inspired to help. If you would like learn how you can volunteer at any All Abilities Athletics event, visit www.allabilitiesathletics.org.
