Tripepi Smith Assists the City of Fullerton with a Virtual State of the City
The City of Fullerton called on Tripepi Smith to assist with video production for the City’s first-ever virtual State of the City on April 29, 2021. The State of the City event provided a venue to discuss progress on recent developments in the City as well as plans for the future. Tripepi Smith conducted interviews with community leaders, including the Fullerton City Council, St. Jude Medical Center and CSU Fullerton, to create several short videos explaining Fullerton’s vision for the upcoming year.
Throughout the State of the City, the City of Fullerton Mayor Bruce Whitaker explained his policy objectives through a single theme: “Give the P’s a chance.” By focusing on the pandemic, potholes, pavement, pipes, pensions, poverty, public safety and prosperity, the City of Fullerton is prioritizing policy areas that will position the City for success.
The project, led by Senior Business Analyst Melanie James, involved two full days of filming interviews and b-roll footage, as well as a full day of drone footage to capture a variety of locations around the city. Director Cameron Grimm played a key role in writing compelling interview questions, Business Analyst and FAA Certified Drone Operator Skylar Hunter captured high-quality drone footage throughout the City, and long-time Tripepi Smith Subcontractor Empire Media Productions Owner Eric Lowy and Videographer Nolan Voge handled filming interviews, capturing broll and editing each video.
“Our team enjoyed working with the City of Fullerton on their State of the City videos. Fullerton has a team of committed staff who care deeply about the progress and success of their city programs,” said Melanie. “The City and Team Tripepi Smith worked collaboratively and efficiently, which allowed us to produce a high-quality product in a short time frame.”
