Client: Samuel Abu
Samuel brought us in to re-cut this piece when he was dissatisfied with the version the original shooter/editor delivered. Since this is Sam's life story, it was critical that it be told correctly.
Coming into a project late has its challenges; your options are often limited, and poorly-executed production can tie your hands as an editor. Despite these complications, we were able to salvage much of Samuel's original vision, and the additions of some clean graphics and well-chosen music elevated the entire piece to something everyone was proud to be a part of.
Having moved from Nigeria to England, and from England to Florida, Samuel's story is a compelling one. Seeing his work ethic as he strives to earn a tryout with a nationally-ranked NCCA program was inspiring. It will be exciting to see the next chapter in this young man's story.
