We Are Milwaukee: Episode 2 + Lupus Awareness Showcase Week Recap
This past May we hosted the final installment of Friday Night Lights Showcase series but this was time around we wanted to make a statement. That statement was Lupus awareness and how not a lot of people don’t know about what this disease carries. Lupus is a chronic inflammatory disease that occurs when your body’s immune system attacks your own tissues and organs. Inflammation caused by lupus can affect many different body systems — including your joints, skin, kidneys, blood cells, brain, heart and lungs. Different people are attacked in different ways by Lupus but when we hosted our Lupus awareness formal dinner our keynote speakers gave a lot of great information about their experiences, more detailed info about what Lupus is and how we as a community can get more involved.
In this episode of We Are Milwaukee we wanted to capture everything, from the process of planning these events all the way to final day of showcase week. Our lead director @ToneBVisuals on this project did an amazing job with filming and editing, he also had the opportunity to team up with @ViancaF_ from VF Productions.
The timeline in this episode is May 14th-May 16th, May 14th was all about the players participating in FNLShowcase3 and asking them how they felt to be apart of the events set to take place. May 15th we shifted our focus from basketball to the most important aspect of these events, our Lupus awareness was the highlight of the 3 days due to the information to the information given by all 3 of our keynote speakers. Finally, May 16th capped off our Lupus awareness showcase week with 2 basketball games.
