100 Resilient Cities Challenge


film production

Background: The Rockefeller Foundation wanted to make a global impact increasing resilience to natural and man-made shocks and stresses so they partnered with my team to design a multi-year, global prize challenge to surface and gather the world’s leaders in urban resilience and centralize best practices, positioning the Foundation as a facilitator of change. As part of the effort, I directed a couple of videos. The first was used to promote the challenge. The second explores the design process behind it.
