Directing & Production Documentary Proposal for Fall Quarter

 

 

Sequim Botanical Garden

 

A five to ten-minute film that highlights the Sequim Botanical Garden, the volunteers that support it and the funding to secure future enrichment and projects.

 

Production Staff – need to decide what specific roles everyone should take on – all of them or split actions out.

Statement

 

We want to educate the public about the Sequim Botanical Gardens.

 

Background & Need

 

The Sequim Botanical Garden has been around for quite a while, but they’re always looking for additional volunteers to work on the gardens.  It is a landmark in Sequim and requires additional funding to maintain and enhance the gardens.  There is a need for greater public outreach and a video promoting the garden should bring additional funding.  A botanical garden is a place to learn, so it’s considered an educational non-profit group.

 

Approach, Form & Style

 

We know that most Sequim citizens are not aware there is a botanical garden in the city limits.  The purpose of this film will be to educate the public about the garden, the various projects and the opportunities to learn about gardening.  The video will explore the history of the garden, including early promoters.  It will highlight some of the volunteers and the work they do.  We also want to focus on the opportunities for the public to learn more about gardening with native plants.  There are some upcoming projects – the rose garden and one based on tribal medicinal benefits – that might be good to highlight.  We can include the planting schedules, including timeframes, for the public to visit.
