A Video Tour of the Tidal Basin Cherry Blossoms

As part of VIVA’s support of the National Cherry Blossom Festival, our team produced a video featuring Mike Litterst, spokesperson for the National Park Service. As Litterst walks around the Tidal Basin with the cherry trees in full bloom, viewers learn more about the trees, the Festival, and the history of the United States’ friendship with the people of Japan. Those watching are encouraged to share in the joy of the blossoms without leaving their homes while the COVID-19 social distancing measures are in effect.

With less than 24 hours’ notice, the VIVA team coordinated a full on-site video shoot, edited the footage, and created this beautiful feature to share with the community in Washington, DC and around the world.
