Videos 4 U

In Videos 4 U, we find someone who needs help saying something and make a video to help them say it.

The first video of this series, I Love You, helps a woman named Maia say I love you to her boyfriend for the first time after eight years of dating. In this project we were working with our subjects much more than we normally do, to make it feel like it was in their own voice. It’s also challenging to present the videos to the person it was created for in the right way, so that it doesn’t feel like we’re making their lives into a spectacle.
