As a micro/small business we put our heart & soul into what we create. When this pandemic hit in early March 2020 we were concerned and questioning how this would affect our business. We also knew that other micro and small businesses would be affected financially and their owners emotionally. So what could we do to help during this difficult time?
Produce a video that tells their stories! We partnered up with our friend's Scott & Lori of Visual Thrive to put together this video and direct consumers to #shoplocal and help local businesses. The video is a collection of stories on how small businesses like, Providence Power Yoga, Adler’s Design Center & Hardware, and White Dog Distilling; with input from the RI Lt. Governor Daniel McKee made it through the difficult times of a pandemic. Scott & Lori (Visual Thrive) produced a directory in a single location to make it easy to find local businesses: http://www.shoplocalrhodeisland.com Let's do all we can to support local businesses!
It felt great to be out and capturing the heartbreaks and triumphs that each business had coping with the changes in their businesses early on in the pandemic. Here are some behind the scenes photos during the production:
