A project of this size, with more than a dozen hours of footage and nearly 10,000 photographs, required rigorous organization.
MediaStorm followed the steps outlined in our post-production workflow
so that each image and video clip was tagged and sorted with similar material.
We transcribed each interview then logged and separated important ideas into distinct categories. These themes were then edited for clarity and finally used as the piece’s narrative spine. A week of production was devoted to this process. The script was then refined throughout the following weeks as we held ourselves accountable to the UNFF’s original four questions.
MediaStorm also accepted submissions from more than two dozen photographers and photographic agencies. With thousands of images to choose from, we worked hard to match pictures with the narrative, while simultaneously evoking the natural beauty of forests. We also had access to more than a dozen films from the International Forest Film Festival
which helped elevate the visual sophistication of the project.
