After contributing a little video support to GLAMP an evening that featured virtual classes, activities, dinners, wine tastings and the raising of a whole lot of dollars for a great organization. Tana Graedel, Associate Vice President of Philanthropy, Girl Scouts of Western Washington, passed along some “….RAVE reviews we received regarding the video. From “it brought tears to my eyes” to “It’s the best video you’ve done to date,” it blew guests away. Thank you for your help in developing the story arch and for your quick turn-around time. It was a crucial element of our online program. We love to partner with you guys!” https://piranha.org/examples/girl-scout-alums-go-glamping
