It's so fun seeing long term projects like this come together in the editing room. For this promotional video for the Chico Athlete Committed program, we filmed over the course of one entire school year. From the heated rivalry at Almond Bowl, to the big Chico vs PV basketball game at Chico State, we covered it all. Trying to represent this many local Chico sports was a challenge, but seeing it all come together in the end made it all worth it! John Shepard, principal of Pleasant Valley High School, was great to work with, willing to be the inspiring voiceover for this piece. As well as Jim Hanlon, principal of Chico High, who made time to make sure we could all the shots we needed. Butte County Department of Behavioral Health was behind this project, and it wouldn't have come together without the hard work of Ryan Gulbrandsen and Danelle Campbell! The whole team at Butte County Department of Behavioral Health does such amazing work with the youth here in Chico and it has been a huge pleasure to work with them over the years on projects like this and others.
Thank you to all the student athletes who were willing to be apart of the making of this promotional film, you will inspire others for years to come!
