Breakdown: Fill These Shoes + St. Patrick’s Cathedral Fundraiser Prompt
Today, we break down one of our favorite vocations videos, completed for the Archdiocese of Chicago back in 2021. As we speak with director Cody Hilliard, we find out what decisions went into the pre-production process, and whether the initial concept worked or didn't. Then, in the second half of the episode, we receive a prompt by which we construct (in 30 minutes) a video concept on how to fundraise for restoration efforts on St. Patrick's Cathedral, in New York City. Let's jump right in!
