Video on Sustainable Cities: One Minute of Happy!
The Washington, DC-based World Resources Institute hired the Dorst MediaWorks team to tell the stories of the five finalists for the inaugural $250,000 Ross Prize for Sustainable Cities.
As a result, we traveled to Medellin, Colombia to film Metrocable; to Pune, India to chronicle the work of SWaCH; to Dar es Salaam, Tanzania for SARSAI; to Durban, South Africa for AeT; and Eskisehir, Turkey to film the city itself.
Here’s the highlight video that played at the New York City gala last week:
It was a privilege to go to four continents and craft stories from these five worthy finalists.
We did it documentary style, which had us interviewing and editing in Spanish, Marathi, Swahili, Zulu, and Turkish — and mastering to English.
So what do you think makes for a sustainable city? Which of the finalists do you like most? Who would you have picked for the grand prize?
