The Live Stream
In the midst of a global pandemic, YouTube Originals decided to honor the high school and college students who would be unable to attend their in-person commencement ceremonies. The four-hour live graduation was built as a virtual celebration, bringing together inspirational leaders, celebrities, and Youtube creators to celebrate graduates, their families, and their communities. The program featured the likes of Barack and Michelle Obama, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter, Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, BTS, and Alicia Keys.
YouTube asked us to create eight short documentaries to highlight different students in the program. This was a unique challenge as we had to do everything remotely. We conducted interviews with all the students remotely and utilized animations and a variety of licensed footage to be able to highlight these amazing students in a way that felt true to their experience and paid homage to their dreams.
