This was one of the most rewarding video experiences of my life. It is the main reason I make these kinds of projects in the first place.
SA Tomorrow is one of the most ambitious programs that the City of San Antonio has ever embarked on, because they are making a comprehensive plan in order to prepare for the year 2040. By that time, more than 1 million people will be living in San Antonio and the City needs to be ready for this growth.
In making videos like this, I feel like I get to be a part of something really good, of building instead of destroying, contributing to the betterment of the world.
I really appreciate the City of San Antonio’s Planning Dept. in trusting me and Digital Work Studios with this enormous project.
Thanks to John Dugan, Rudy Niño, Micah Diaz & Larry Schooler.
