This year Dorothea Benton Frank released her new novel, Porch Lights. We were hired by her publishing company to produce a fun, documentary-ish video tour of her hometown – Sullivans Island, which her novel takes place. We hopped into “Dotty’s” go kart and spun around the Sulivan’s Island hotspots.
As an aside, we had stuck a GoPro on the go kart to catch reverse action – I’m always playing with alternate camera angles for clients which include extra and creative options – some don’t always make the cut, however sometimes it works out and adds the unexpected. This is what that looked like:
Of Sullivans Island:
This island is a very singular one. It consists of little else than the sea sand, and is about three miles long. Its breadth at no point exceeds a quarter of a mile. It is separated from the mainland . . .
