Gentleman Scholar Provides VFX for Boston Police

Gentleman Scholar partners with Whitehouse Editorial to create a spot for the Boston Police Foundation narrated by Donnie Wahlberg.


Creative collective Gentleman Scholar teamed up with long-time collaborators Whitehouse Editorial on a powerful spot for Boston Police Foundation. Donnie Wahlberg provides a sober plea for support over a procession of still images portraying the Boston police at their heroic best, racing to crime scenes, mingling with the community, remaining calm in the maw of chaos.

Whitehouse editor, Adam Robinson, approached Gentleman Scholar to work on the piece, after teaming with them on the titles for the Harmony Korine-directed film, Spring Breakers, confident that the postproduction experts would deftly enhance the powerful sequence of images with understated VFX.

“I grew up in the area so it was a project I was excited to be a part of,” explains Whitehouse Editorial Editor Adam Robinson. “I was talking to Carissa (Marlowe), Joe (Berkeley) and Dave (Wall) about it and we were thinking that if we could get the crew at Gentleman Scholar on board, it would take it to another level. They really brought it to life.”

“We’ve have a very collaborative process with Whitehouse, and this Boston Police Foundation project was the perfect opportunity to flex our collective muscles,” notes Gentleman Scholar CD Will Johnson. “Creating a meaningful spot for a worthy organization is something that we can all be really proud of.”
