This is a follow up to my April 21, 2020 post Frances Kelsey Grad 2020.
The video message is done! I started a YouTube channel so it can be shared easily to the grad class and those that helped out. Linked above or look up DevonMcFaddenArt on YouTube!
Trish – seen in the video at the end, is one of the friends mentioned in my blog that has a son graduating this year. Her daughter, Jordan graduated last year so Jordan contributed and they both enlisted other grads to participate. I had my sisters, Meghan and Clare and my brother in law Carl and friends of mine contribute as well: thank you Ali, Chelsea and Sean, Laura, Maryann, Shannon and Rachel as well as all the other grads who helped make this happen!
Of course, it couldn’t have happened without Trish – who helped boss grads to get it done and organized all the videos, and thank you to Ian Ronningen, also a former grad, who did the video editing.
I am so thrilled with how it turned out, it is totally what I envisioned that it could be!
I love the story of the music. You will all recognize the music, and it was played on the piano by one of the 2020 grads. He didn’t know for what purpose he was recording himself play this song. So it was a surprise to him that it was included in this. It is also his brother, a police constable that contributes a short message at the end.
The video was released over the weekend to the 2020 grad class and from what I hear, it was very well received.
So heartfelt thanks to everyone who joined me and contributed even though you didn’t know what the end result would be, I appreciate your trust! I love it, and congratulations to the 2020 grads!
