“After more than 15 years in public relations with roots in journalism, I reached a point where I needed to find what I was passionate about in my profession or find a new one. I thought I would come out of the process changing careers. Instead, I found what I truly love about the one I’ve already got: Telling people’s stories. Everyone’s got a story – it’s what makes people (and people make up businesses) who they are, it’s their personality, their difference. I enjoy finding the story, pulling it out, making it relevant and communicating it to the public. In my adapted career, I simply found another way to communicate the stories – through documentary video.”

We spent a morning with Savannah realtor Chris White and a client he was showing houses to, while shooting a video. We looked at quite a few homes with them on our tour through Downtown Savannah. Not all of the footage made it into the final cut of the short video, some lacked “curb appeal.”

Many months later, the videographer asked me, “So what home did she buy?”

We do get a little stuck on the people and places we shoot videos of, after shooting and editing hours of footage. And who doesn’t love a good before and after? So here you go, Joe, and for those of you interested in historic homes.

The homeowner bought the little Victorian fixer upper in this scene from the video.

Before
Chris White showing his client the house before she bought it.

At the time, I didn’t think there was a lighting kit bright enough for this drab interior. Now look at it.

After
The house now that she’s living in it.

“There was a fair amount of work, but it was all cosmetic,” the homeowner told us. “We re-finished the heart pine floors to bring out the warm natural color and painting helped to brighten up the place. We used a lot of greens and blues mixed with the warm wood tone to reflect the later Victorian style.”

Chris White said that it was a great find in a mostly residential area of Historic Downtown Savannah. “She wanted something that was small, but ideal for entertaining and in the right block.”
