The Big Picture Film & Video Arts takes pride in contributing to philanthropic projects for San Francisco and Bay Area community organizations. Here we created a promotional video for Youth In Arts, “The Paper Princess.”
Youth in Arts’ world premiere musical theater production is based on Elisa Kleven’s popular Paper Princess book series, adapted for the stage by YIA Director Miko Lee and featuring original bilingual music by Miguel Martinez, large-scale puppets and multimedia effects.

Sometimes it’s not easy to get people to work on video production on Sundays but when one of your clients is married to Captain Chelsey “Sully” Sullenberger and you need a favor for a celebrity cameo all of us were first in line to volunteer.
Many thanks to Captain Sully, who you may know as the hero that safely landed US Airways flight 1549 into the Hudson River in 2009. We found him to be a very kind and generous man who volunteered part of his Sunday to do a favor for The Big Picture.
