Barrie Area Native Advisory Circle, BANAC, PSAs promoting COVID-19 vaccines, 2021

In October of 2021, members of the Barrie Area Native Advisory Circle, BANAC, hired our crew at Five Points Media, a division of the Ontario Community Awareness Network, to produce three Public Service Announcements that were intended to motivate people within the Indigenous community to receive vaccines against the COVID-19 pandemic. Three non-professional Indigenous presenters were asked to present on camera. Our crew handled all aspects of presenting this information, from recording audio and video to directing the raw talent and post-producing the finished content with titles and credits.

A couple of weeks later, we were asked to produce shorter and simpler versions of these videos of a specific length that were intended for broadcast television.
