Erskine Web Series

Erskine College is a venerable institution in Upstate South Carolina. My alma mater approached me about producing a web series to aid enrollment and advancement. Below are a few of my favorite episodes. The series contract ran for two years leading up to the 175th anniversary of the college and was hosted by fellow alum, Corey Emanuel. I learned a lot producing these pieces. Each video varied greatly from the last. At times we were filming Corey perched on a rock above a raging river at the National Whitewater Center. I had to learn how to control audio in that situation. Other times I was clinging to the exterior sideboard of an ancient Ford Model A filming an interview as the subjects drove through campus. It was a joy to return to Erskine years later and create something that hopefully still continues to benefit the school and community.

“We run a small in-house shop and rely solely on external partners for design and media content. Drew worked with our team to develop concepts and produce a web series telling our story with authenticity and beauty. Drew could hear and see my team’s vision. The resulting deliverables were a quantum leap in quality over previous materials we had produced for advancement and enrollment. Three years out, we still use the pieces as they were so capably produced.”
