DESCRIPTION: After the passing of Aretha Franklin on August 16, 2018, Detroiters united for a week of remembrance, mourning and celebration.
PRODUCTION: During that incredibly busy news week, I was spared from producing daily video content. Instead, I filmed selectively and gathered content from the awesome team of Detroit Free Press photo and video journalists with whom I work. Their work truly makes this short film possible. The edit crystalized as the week progressed and ended with a frantic deadline push, as usual.
