Back in march, Chris alerted us to the American Public Transportation Association’s Dump the Pump Competition, where volunteer video makers could show their reasons for making the switch away from using gas/personal motor vehicles.
First off, the title of this post could “our” rather than “my” — so many great people volunteered their skills as actors, animators, extras and grips, that this turned out to be a bigger production than originally intended. And I mustn’t forget to thank the location owners, managers, and staff who graciously allowed us to film on their premises.
For these videos, I decided rather than to film testimonials, to go for short dramatic productions, and to interpret the “Dump the Pump” theme rather literally (you’ll see) and to broaden the alternatives to include bikes as well as bus and rail.
Thanks again to everyone who helped — the full credits are after the break. Now, without further ado, here are the three videos:
