SoGal Ottawa: Prepping For the Future of Work

Recently, I was hired by SoGal which is “largest global platform for the education and empowerment of diverse entrepreneurs and investors”, Their mission is to close the diversity gap in entrepreneurship and venture capital. Sogal’s Ottawa chapter were recently having a networking event to ask how they could prep themselves and the youth for the future of work. They hired me to to film and put together a little recap video for their Ottawa Chapter. The event had a keynote speaker: Shauna Pollock: co-founder & director of Ottawa’s leading experimental prototype school, Blue Sky School. Check out the video below!

In this day and age, if you’re not on some form of social media you tend to miss out on a lot of talent. However, if the spotlight isn’t for you there are still roles in which you can be near the light but not directly in it. At Strast Media, we pride ourselves in being both in and out of the spotlight. Anytime we can help a fellow creative shine we are over the moon about it!

Which leads us into today’s post, as our founder Adrienne Row - Smith assisted, retouched and shot a video for fellow Ottawa Photographer Chris Roussakis. Chris specializes in commercial and editorial photography and is always willing up for a challenge, and wanted to do something a little bit different and also wanted to take the opportunity to feature model Justina Sadecki in his portfolio.

Check out the animated video for retouching and the Behind the scenes video of his shoot and Strast Media work!
