Video Without A Camera

Sometimes vital source material isn't available for a project. Sometimes schedules and weather won't permit a successful shoot. What do you do? Throw in the towel and scrap the project? Never! Just call your friendly, neighborhood illustrator.  Graphic designer/videographer/editor Laura Bearl is working on the first of what will be an entire series of workforce videos for the College's ESOL program that she's drawing and animating entirely by hand.
