Our team had the opportunity to work directly with the Please Touch Museum to create a video for their Future of Play campaign in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Featuring a smaller crew, we wanted to do our part to create the safest set possible. Masks were worn at all times, the crew remained physically distant from each other, and we took frequent sanitizing breaks for the crew and gear. Directed by Maria Cantu, the video shows some of the museum’s most popular attractions and exhibits that were once bustling with activity, now empty, lifeless, and alone. Being inside the vacant museum without crowds of children and parents was a surreal experience, and being guided by President & CEO Patricia Wellenbach throughout the empty halls was an unforgettable experience.

“The Future of Play” was shot on the Arri Alexa Mini with a full set of Zeiss CP3 lenses and Arri Ultra Prime 16mm lens. The movement was created with the Movi Pro support system. 

Partnering with the Please Touch Museum was a pleasure. We are excited to be so crucially involved with their “Future of Play” fundraising campaign.
