Corban Lundborg: 2018 DoD Visual Storytelling Workshop

Corban Lundborg of CALM Collective was invited to participate on the advanced video team during the 2018 DoD Visual Storytelling Workshop in San Diego, California.

The workshop is an annual event for storytellers around the Department of Defense.

The team had just a few days to find, shoot, edit and produce a story.

The advanced video team linked up with Nathaniel Allenby, founder and entertainer at Cirque Quirk, an entertainment company based out of San Diego with a mission to encourage the youth and combat bullying.

The workshop consisted of both photo and video teams from around the DoD. All teams (video) or individuals (photographers) were required to produce a story with guidance from their mentors. The DoD storytelling community is long-standing and represented by many generations.

Nathaniel Allenby works with other entertainers in preparation for an upcoming show. He also mentors and teaches younger stilt walkers between practice times.

Nathaniel’s entertainment acts contain many versions of himself including his steam punk ego, Chuck.

Shelby Matullo, one of three team members on the advance video team focuses a Canon C100 during a shoot at the San Diego County Fair.

Tyler Woodward, also one of three producers, balances a Sony A7sii on a Ronin gimbal during a shoot.

The final team member and co-founder and creative director at CALM Collective, Corban Lundborg envisions a shot at the County Fair.

The team of three Airmen worked flawlessly together to plan, shoot and edit a short story capturing Nathaniel’s being.
