The primary challenge in producing this piece was a lack of video source material. Connors’ work at Zuccotti Park focused solely on portraiture. There was no other documentation of the Occupy Wall Street Movement.
Because this project necessitated seeing more of Occupy Wall Street activity, beyond Connors portraiture, it was necessary to license additional material. MediaStorm producers’ researched the archives of many news organizations and stock imagery houses in order to find the most compelling video available.
The films were shown on April 11, 2015 at the 2016 International Center of Photography’s Infinity Awards in New York and launched online on April 12, 2016.
The films available here are the full-length pieces. We also created shorter versions
to show at the awards ceremony.
