What We Will Do
Serve Denton supports non-profits that open up doors for people to become self-sufficient.
Serve Denton has a long history in Denton County. Our goal for the project is to create an emotional mini-documentary that tells the story of Serve Denton's long lasting legacy on the people of Denton county, both in the past and in their bright future.
Why We Do It
As a whole, our culture and our world is consuming incredible amount of film and video. At the same time, they're inundated with thousands of ads every day.
Our niche is in our ability to cut through all that clutter and get straight to the hearts and minds of a brand or non-profit's target audience.
We bring meaning to the seemingly ordinary.
The narrative of the video will be guided by documentary style interviews by notable people in the history of Serve Denton.
- Elinor Hughes will talk about the early history, the vision for SD and what the culture of Denton was like in the 70’s
- Tim Crouch will talk about his dad and how he put Elinor and his ideas into action starting SD
- Dr. Betty and Pat will talk about Serve Denton status today, and the vision coming true with the advent of Denton Assistance Center
The interviews will be shot in a very naturalistic style, meeting the interviewee in their natural environment. B-roll will be heavily consisted of archival photos, and the interviewees looking at oldphotos, walking through the new SD space, beautiful shots of Denton locations, etc.
The first rough cut of the 3 minute video will be delivered on September 15, 2017. More in-depth timeline will be discussed and displayed on the SoW.
