The Streets of Mankato
Reds, blues, greens, yellows, purples, diamonds, ovals, crescents, triangles—this is what you see when you peer into a kaleidoscope, an array of colors and shapes arranged into one cohesive, ornate image. Just as a kaleidoscope has many shapes and colors that together form one image, so does a town have many people and businesses that together form one community.
This past week, Parthé peered into the kaleidoscope that is Mankato, Minnesota in order to shoot a community-based commercial for Mankato Clinic. We traveled around Mankato, filming at a variety of locations from The Coffee Hag to Nicollet Bike Shop.
Navigating various weather and lighting conditions, we collected fantastic shots at an assortment of venues that we are now in the process of assembling into a finished video that includes a wide range of locations, but visually communicates one clear message. The diamond at Franklin Rogers Ballpark, the red of the fire engine at the Mankato Fire Department, the crescent curve of the water pump handle at the entrance of Red Jacket Trail Park all have a sense of charm in their own right, but combined into one video, these elements form one cohesive, ornate image that is Mankato, Minnesota.
Look for our interpretation of Mankato for Mankato Clinic coming soon!
