NBC Interview for United States of Autism Pepsi Refresh Project
If you’re in the Philadelphia and Central Pennsylvania TV markets, get ready to see us, the United States of Autism Movie and the Tommy Foundation, on NBC TV!
The Pepsi Refresh Project sent out an NBC crew to visit us and put together a 30 second spot on Friday. They were here for about five hours during the shoot. Our crew (Rich, Sugey, and Cassie) got all our equipment and headed over to one of our local families home, Barbara and Cesar Figueroa. There, we simulated an interview for our film and some time with the family. Afterwards, they came back to the Everts home and conducted the interview and profile shorts.
The crew was extremely friendly and interested in getting the most out of the story of autism and the community we represent. We were very impressed by their technical knowledge as well as how they handled the children affected by autism.
We ourselves were able to grab a little footage of them interviewing us of our own. However, due to some computing challenges, it won’t be ready until next week. Stay tuned for that next week!
The NBC spot should start airing by June 8th in select markets. If you see us, just let us know!
