Now Is the Time for Running is unlike any children’s book I’ve ever read. It puts its young protagonist in an unimaginably difficult scenario, except that many people have actually experienced what Deo went through. It doesn’t skirt around topics like military rule, exploitation of illegal immigrants, and xenophobic violence, either. And yet it manages to be sobering, gut-wrenching, and uplifting and brilliantly eye-opening at the same time. A must read.
Florida Virtual School (FLVS), the nation's first and largest online public school, wanted a dynamic way to entice students to read great literature, and wanted a series of short promo videos to inform students of their book choices. The short video promos use a movie trailer style of production to introduce the story and promote the book.
Digitec produced the promo video for "Now is the Time for Running" by Michael Williams. Digitec provided the creative treatment and storyboards, talent and HD filming at various locations around Central Florida. Digitec also did the post-production, audio and logo design.
