Last year the Del Mar Television Foundation realized that Del Mar was in need of some short videos highlighting the different organizations and volunteer opportunities in Del Mar. The Garden Club was re-vamping the outside area at City Hall and we thought that would be a good opportunity to start and to showcase part of what the Garden Club does for the Del Mar Community. We began taping the work from pulling out the weeds and old shrubs to replanting and final the beautiful transformation.
In the meantime, Luana Karr thought it would be a great idea to incorporate our Education Outreach Mentoring Program and help students feel connected to their community. It would also give the intern an opportunity to put a short story together and to have a short completed piece to add to their reel. In that light, Meghan Anderson mentored our intern from UCSD, Shilu Zou, tape and edit the piece as well as provide post-production work. This included capturing the area outside the Post Office and the Library. Luana Karr with Bill Hoffman and Judi Miller arranged for the interviews with Mary Friestedt, Arline Paa and Marielle (Zus) Von Thillo. She also worked with them to get various photos on some of their projects. Funding was provided by the Del Mar Television Foundation in part with a grant from the Del Mar Foundation.
