Created as an add-on area to the travelling exhibition Empowering Women: Artisan Cooperatives that Transform Communities, "Weaving a Better Future" brought visitors to visit the women of the weaving co-operatives in Guatemala using Virtual Reality.

Starting with a whirlwind 8-day shoot travelling around Guatemala, we met with the women, filming them in their environments and hearing their stories. Taking stories from the interviews we constructed a narrative using their own voice, the entire experience took about 15 minutes.

As the Media Producer for this project I was responsible for all phases of the media production. Purchasing and equipment transport, media acquisition (Including 360-degree filming, video interviews, still photography, and audio recording), script oversight, 360-degree stitching, and film editing. The still photography was used as part of the exhibit design and marketing.
