About This Project

I filmed and edited this video for Dr. Angie Taylor, the CEO of Guardian Quest. In this video, you see Dr. Taylor explain the concept of “Sawa Bona” and what it means to her. Sawa Bona is a common African greeting in the Natal tribe. It literally means ‘I see you’.  In the video, you’ll learn how important this African greeting is, or should be, to our everyday lives.


This short video is less than two minutes long and was created for the purpose of sharing a powerful message via social media.  On the day this was recorded, the Guardian Quest team and I filmed several videos like this.  Their plan was to add at least one video into their social media marketing campaign each month, for a couple months, to keep their content entertaining and fresh.
