École de Musique Dessaix Baptiste, Jacmel’s music school, recently needed a short institutional profile video. As part of Ciné Institute’s civic engagement curriculum, first year students were charged with the learning exercise of developing a concept that would assist Dessaix Baptiste. Students then pitched their ideas to the music school board and one proposal was chosen. The winning team, Guy-Robert Barjon (Producer), Miguel Alvarez (Director), Christien Sylvaince (Camera Operator), Betty Toussaint (Camera Assistant), Roudie R. Marcelin (Sound), shot and edited the final video.
The resulting video so impressed the music school that the director has since called back to request another more ambitious video for their upcoming Big Band Christmas concert.
