DC SCORES is making a difference where it counts. DC SCORES is making a difference where it counts.

This fall, we were very proud to work with a terrific group here in The District known as DC Scores. The Organization works with elementary and middle school students in after school programs that use soccer, poetry, and service learning to make a real difference in kids’ lives. Our mission was to create a compelling video for an annual event that captured the essence and emotion of the project and promoted support from the viewers. Armed with our cameras and curiosity, we began the search for the meaning of the words ‘Building Teams. Changing Lives.’ According to Executive Director, Amy Nakamoto “We had a very specific video need for an important event and they were true partners in helping us understand what will resonate from a film quality perspective and yet were amenable to our requests on important specifics.”

            After the initial meeting, we proposed the idea of using three students to represent each of the three areas of the DC Scores experience. We filmed practice, games, and class and conducted interviews with the students, support staff and parents. Once we had all the material we needed, we created a story using only the voices we captured as well as poetry by the students. According to Nakamoto, “the final product was an amazingly done piece that serves the exact need we were going for. Specifically, Automatic Sports’ attentiveness to us as clients was above and beyond and we trusted them implicitly as experts in their field. “We were extremely happy with them and would recommend them to anybody.

A project like this can become more than just a job and we are extremely happy with the results and proud of our work for such a wonderful group. DC Scores is making a real difference! Check out their website and please consider supporting this very worthy cause.
