What did Maplight need?

Sean helped Maplight by editing, enhancing and compiling existing raw video footage into a final deliverable optimized for email, the web or social media.

Why is this project important?

Increasing our organization's reach through the media has a key role to play in protecting our democracy in limiting the influence of money in politics. The idea here is for the video to help members of the media assess MapLight president Daniel G. Newman's skills talking on camera and book him for future appearances. We plan to pitch media ahead to discuss Dan's upcoming graphic novel about fixing American democracy.

This project will save us $5,422, allowing us to better promote our work with critical new audiences and lead to a more accountable, responsive democracy.

Great experience! Alec was a fantastic working partner, as well as Maplight. Conversations about the project were team-oriented where my skills and experience were listened to and respected. When I asked for assets to make the project better, the response was quick and enthusiastic. I felt valued as part of the Maplight team and not just a person that was brought in to put together an edit.

About Maplight

MapLight is a nonpartisan research organization that reveals money's influence on politics. We research and compile data about the sources of campaign contributions in U.S. presidential, congressional, state, and local ballot and candidate elections. We provide journalists and citizens with transparency tools that connect data on campaign contributions, politicians, legislative votes, industries, companies, and more to show patterns of influence never before possible to see. These tools allow users to gain unique insights into how campaign contributions affect policy so they can draw their own conclusions about how money influences our political system.
