Filmmaking For Good Teams Up With Princeton University To Produce Videos For Positive Impact

(Case Study with John Danner at Princeton)

John Danner // Professor // Princeton University: “I have trusted Jessica Kizorek multiple times over the last 10 years to visit my Princeton students and provide instruction on best practices for making short-form videos about social ventures and causes. Student teams in my recent course about food insecurity and each group had to make a pitch video about original ideas to address problems related to food and poverty. Jessica met individually with each team, listening to their ideas and advising them on how to capture those ideas on video. At the end of the class, we Zoomed Jessica in to screen and review each group’s videos. She was able to do a critique while providing insights that only come from someone with 20 years experience in the field. Jessica and her curriculum are great partners in the classroom, and I hope to continue to collaborate for many years to come.”
