Hello Happy Citizens!
Happy City needs your help with a fun little project. Here's the
deal: we've heard some great things from people in this city when
we've asked them to fill in the sentence "My Happy City is…" Now
we'd like to capture some of this on film. That's where you come
in. We've got a small budget (thanks to The United Way and the
great folks at DC Design House) to put together a series of short
videos recording the different ideas people in St. John's have
about their city - and we'd like to include you. As the city rolls
out its new municipal plan and asks for our feedback, we want to
use these videos to spark some much-needed conversation.
The form these videos will take is going to vary - if your Happy
City involves something that's already here, we'll probably head
down there to film it with you. If it's something you're dreaming
of, we might film you somewhere else, or grab something related and
have you do a voiceover. Either way, we'd love to hear as many
voices as we can.
Sound good? Drop us a line! Reply to this email (or just email
firstname.lastname@example.org) and let
us know how you'd finish the "My Happy City is…" statement, and
we'll get in touch with you to sort out some filming time. We do
know it's the depths of winter, and some of your ideas might do
better being filmed in the warmer months - no worries. Get in touch
now and we'll get everything sorted out well in advance.
Thanks for your help - and spread the word!
- The Happy City Team
