Poptech holds an annual conference in Camden, Maine that "brings together a global community of innovators from many fields to share insights and work together to create lasting change."

We shot candid-style interviews of local museum lovers for the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Thanks to our friends Marty and Willie at VideoArt for taking the lead on the shoot. Notice the use of an iPad instead of a traditional slate. Using 3 Canon SLRs, we captured beautiful high def video that will have gorgeous depth of field.
