When NICE approached 29 Pixel Studios about a Kansas City Airport Video and the importance of a thriving airport, we couldn’t wait to start planning. NICE is the National Institute for Construction Excellence and they have three overall visions and goals:
- Improve education, particularly science, engineering, math and technology for all young people.
- Elevate the image of construction related fields for young people and in the community.
- Strengthen economic development in the community.
The story here; the people of Kansas City love our airport as-is. MCI is fast and convenient. While it’s hard to argue against that, it was fascinating to learn more about why a remodel would benefit our entire Kansas City area. Thinking of an airport as something more than a personal people mover helps open up the conversation.
It’s always about the story at 29 Pixel Studios. In a documentary style project, the true story gets revealed during the acquisition phase. NICE lined up many respectable people to interview and get their opinion. It’s our hope that the shocking amount of benefits that a single terminal could bring to Kansas City is evident in our video.

From Nick: “I’ve worked on a few projects with the fine people at NICE, so it is with extreme confidence that I say these people are fully committed to their mission of helping youth and strengthen economic development. It’s an honor to have worked with NICE and sincerely look forward to the next chance to tell their story!”
29 Pixel Studios was then brought on to document the fundraising event where the video was revealed. Southwest Vice President, Jason Van Eaton, spoke as the keynote and revealed the companies’ desire for a single terminal. Mr. Eaton said very nice words about the video we produced, so afterwards we thanked him and expressed our loyalty to Southwest! That loyalty is based on the SEA LIFE Sea Turtle Rescue project! http://29pixelstudios.com/sea-life-arizona-sea-turtle-rescue-video/ and on my personal site http://nickschale.com/2016/01/2015-sea-life-arizona-i-love-my-job/.
We had fun producing this video! It would be remiss of me if I didn’t thank the team. Of course, Greg Lever the Executive Director and master planner! Brett Smith knocked out some around the town shots and we had some help from the fantastic Tony Rangel on a day that Nick had to attend a funeral. Finally, our very own Pixel Punisher Paige did some knock out work on this project.
