What is a Redneck, and what does it mean to Appalachia? This social explainer video discusses the stereotypes of a redneck, its history in Appalachia, and a bit of humor.
This video was produced for the Appalachian news site “100 days in Appalachia”, a news source based out of West Virginia University. This video is one of a 4-part social explainer video series that break down various Appalachian concepts including the term redneck, the origin of the pepperoni roll, Appalachian dialect, and hemp farms. I worked in a 4 person team where I developed the initial script and storyboard of the video. While working on this project I was given the opportunity to step up and do the final edits where I added several visual effects, color corrected, and added background music.
