Palmetto Beach documentary


Palmetto Beach is a Tampa, Florida neighborhood you might overlook on your way to the local Ikea, but it is rich with history. Home to a blue collar class of works, both Italians and Cubans mixed here to live and work in nearby Ybor City in the cigar factories in the 1920s and 30s. I storyboarded this project, and recorded interviews with various members of the community when filming this documentary. I used Adobe Premier for all editing. and Research was conducted via interviews, local news sources, and I also visited the University of South Florida archives collection to locate some historical images.
