Culture Trip's short film 'The Sounds of Chicago' won a Muse Platinum Award in 2020 - I pitched and produced the film in 2019 as part of Culture Trip's focus locations project. Chicago is famous for its music, so we pitched an idea to create a film that would take the audience on a journey through the decades and genres of music in Chicago. Our intention with this film was to visualise the history of music in Chicago in 1.5 minutes, as a means to show how the city evolved over time and where it gets its unique character from. It serves as an informative piece to spark people’s interest in visiting the windy city. https://museaward.com/winner-info.php?id=3551
