This episode profiled Marshall Burns, a man who trains people how to use transit systems who otherwise would not be able to. Burns is blind, but he did not let that stop him from getting around! He taught himself how to navigate the city. We shot an interview of him and filmed B-roll of him training. It was interesting to work on a moving city bus.

On this inspiring shoot we found the right director of photography, audio operator and production assistant. We worked in Corpus Christi, TX for a full-day shoot. It was so uplifting to hear Burns’ story and to be a part of his training.
