Legacy

Lumahai Productions was deeply involved with the Kennedy Center's year-long celebration marking the centenary of John F. Kennedy's birth on May 29, 2017. In its programming and public initiatives, the Center was guided by a handful of enduring ideals championed by the visionary leader: Courage, Freedom, Justice, Service, and Gratitude.

Lumahai was commissioned to create a short-form video, Legacy, setting lines from President Kennedy's speeches to original music and graphics.
