Early in 2021, I began working as a part-time communications consultant for the West Virginia Climate Alliance, a coalition of nearly 20 West Virginia-based environmental organizations, faith-based, civil rights and civic groups with a focus on climate change. We have begun releasing a series of short videos, including a just-finished one (above) which describes the three pillars that drive Climate Alliance efforts.
Since we work cheap, that is me narrating the 1 minute, 30-second video. The gorgeous aerial photography of West Virginia is by my AMP Media partner and creative wunderkind, Bobby Lee Messer. (And if you ever have need of drone photography of West Virginia, contact him via the AMP Media page. He has quite a growing library.)
With Alliance videos, we aim to put a face on the growing number of folks who are striving to address, as the new video puts it, “the most important and essential work of these times.” Below is a video that kicked off the series. It poses an important question to climate activists or, really, to anyone who has woken up to how we must move quickly and at a global scale to address the climate crisis. ~ Douglas John Imbrogno
