Come Together / Hurricane Katrina
Writer, Producer, Director
Starwood Hotels and Resorts
We filmed the opening interviews, and many others like them, at Starwood’s Sheraton and W Hotels in New Orleans immediately following landfall of Hurricane Katrina. The documentation provided the basis for a 48-hour fundraiser that galvanized the company and generated $2.5 million for New Orleans associates. We filmed the second half two months later as associates returned to rebuild their city and their lives. Simple and straightforward, this video was produced for the annual sales meeting to acknowledge the true mettle of the Starwood organization.
