Family Kocktail, MediaStorm Workshop #5

I had the good luck to work with Deanne Fitzmaurice, Doug Grant, and Stan Alcorn for the fifth MediaStorm Advanced Multimedia Reporting Workshop. As the team's coach and producer it was truly a treat to work alongside such talented and generous people. Doug reported, Stan edited, Deanne and Doug shot some pretty glorious visuals.

About the project:

Kryssy Kocktail was a loner who dreamed of running away from her troubled family to join the circus. Now she eats fire, lays on a bed of nails and sits on an electric chair as a performer in the Coney Island Circus Sideshow in Brooklyn, NY. In realizing one dream, she discovers another: to be a part of a family.

You can see Family Kocktail here. And please check out The Art of Atraction produced by Bob Sacha's team, as well as a behind-the-scenes look at the workshop by intern extraordinaire Maisie Crow.
