Stokes provided aerial drone videography for the DCAS (Department of Citywide Administrative Services), capturing footage of the installation of a new photovoltaic system at Tottenville High School in Staten Island, NY. Using a combination of aerial drone footage, key personnel interviews and documentary style video coverage, Stokes created a promotional video highlighting the advantages of going green by utilizing solar energy. This video is being used to help push the clean energy campaign further, as well as provide insight into the efforts behind setting up a large array of solar panels.
