In the editing room, we had to whittle a ton of footage of bees and beekeepers down to a max running time of four minutes. So I’m eager to apply that same efficiency and punch to Agent Link and AgenteNews’ insurance industry videos going forward.
Clearwater, FL (PRWEB) May 07, 2014
Kushner, Agent Link’s video production manager and managing editor of AgenteNews (http://www.AgenteNews.com), recently won third place in the Food and Farming Short Film Competition. Along with partners Tim Powers, Andrew Douglass and Louis Kern, Kushner’s production company Majestic Plural Studios submitted "Who Keeps the Beekeepers?"—a short documentary about colony collapse disorder in honeybees and what the last remaining beekeepers have to say about the future of our food supply.
The first-ever Food and Farming Short Film Competition is a part of The Real Food Media Project—a collaborative initiative to spread the story of food through creative films, a web-based action center, and grassroots events. With a prestigious panel of judges including Top Chef’s Padma Lakshmi as well as authors Michael Pollan and Eric Schlosser, the contest generated more than 100,000 views for the top finalists’ films with votes coming in from over 40 countries, a testament to the storytelling artistry and passion so prevalent in the good food movement.
“I was honored to participate and place in this contest, and I learned a lot about what’s essential for any successful video with this project,” said Kushner, “In the editing room, we had to whittle a ton of footage of bees and beekeepers down to a max running time of four minutes. So I’m eager to apply that same efficiency and punch to Agent Link and AgenteNews’ insurance industry videos going forward.”
“We’re very proud of Jason’s accomplishment,” said Agent Link President Senia Gramajo, “We’re glad to have him on the Agent Link team and heading up our video department. He has a great eye for detail and approaches every new project dynamically and passionately.”
