Sara Sadat was running for Village of Lisle Trustee. With a website and social media already in place, she wanted a better way to tell her personal story. She was new to politics and was quite involved on the local level. The political candidate thought about doing a series of Facebook Lives but realized a well produced video would probably help connect voters on a more emotional level to her story.
When she was eight years old, Sadat moved with her Mom from India to the United States. A survivor of domestic abuse, Sadat is an artist, works as an executive, and is deeply involved with her local community. She saw opportunities in Lisle and wanted to make it better!
We helped Sadat narrow down her story and worked on a storyboard for the video. Filming took place over the course of a day. With political video productions, we typically have short turnarounds. The edit was complete within 24 hours and when posted online, the video started spreading like wildfire!
