Foot Traffic

  • Let the training begin!
    They say what doesn't kill you makes you stronger, and never have I banked on those words as much as I have when picking out a training plan for Fort4Fitness.
  • In training: Meet Tami
    Meet Tami Brigle. She is a northwest Ohio resident who works in Fort Wayne. She began running a little more than a year ago, starting with Couch to 5K. Running helped her lose 55 pounds (she's lost 105 pounds total).
  • Triple play
    If one is good and two is better, what does that make three? I'd be inclined to say crazy but others might call it a challenge.

Shooter's Comments: I created a video from the GM Fort Wayne Assembly Plant 25th Anniversary. I was a bit overwhelmed when I got there because I had a few things in mind to create a visual story.

I wanted to use b-roll from employees actually working in the plant and use speakers' voices as the narration.

It didn't work out exactly how I would have liked it, but I tried to make it work. Time was an issue, I needed more of it. As a side note, those employees make that job look so easy. Wow! I don't think I could do that. It was cool to see the process.
