We took a field trip the land of Lincoln to create this piece for the University of Illinois Springfield's fundraising efforts. We took their overall concept of "reaching stellar" and brought it to life visually with beautiful cinematography shot in a naturalistic documentary style. We wanted to show familiar scenes and people but give it a dramatic flair that offers a sense of urgency and purpose to what goes on at the school and for alumni once they leave.
