Project Description

Ben Hauck after Casting His Vote

About This Video

Canadian vlogger Aimée Davison was in NYC during the United States Presidential Election in November 2012, and we thought it would be a good idea to document what the experience was like voting in the U.S.

I lived in Astoria, Queens, and we started by filming a robocall I’d received from President Barack Obama.  (If you look closely, you’ll see a bit of product placement as I situated my book Long-Form Improv clearly in the shot.)  Then, we took the short walk to a school where I voted.  We get inside and shoot a bit what it was like in the area, then we get a little interview with me about my voting experience.


Shot and edited by Aimée Davison on November 6, 2012, in Astoria, Queens, New York.
