Night to Unite is an annual city event where Mounds View Police Officers and city residents come together to socialize in an informal setting. It is an opportunity to build community trust, and discuss community issues with neighbors.
The City of Mounds View wanted a video to capture the annual Night to Unite event. Unlike a normal community event however, Night to Unite takes place at different block parties around the City. The challenge was to create a video highlighting the event at multiple locations in a short time frame.
To plan shoot locations, CTV Producer Jared Wiedmeyer talked with the Mounds View Police Department prior to the event. He planned three locations based on where and when officers would visit. Jared kept set up minimal with a C100 camera, and sunlight reflector.
