    A trade organization wanted to highlight the powerful work they were doing by bringing decision makers together and greasing the wheels of progress in Colorado Adtech. I produced, scripted and directed this piece and teamed up with one of my production partners to make it happen. They did fantastic work getting high energy visuals and sound, and my editor took it from there.
