AT&T BACKSTAGE SPOTLIGHT VIDEO
AS - PRODUCED VIDEO TRANSCRIPT
Djemal Burris: If you guys wanna look up, you actually have some of the moving lights that you’re gonna be seeing out there.
SUPER: WESTON KEIFER, TECHNICAL MANAGER, AT&T PERFORMING ARTS CENTER
Weston Keifer: We’re bringing a lot of high school kids in to see shows and experience what it is that we do here.
Weston Keifer: This one specifically, is called a hundred percent lanyard. Can anyone guess why?
SUPER: ANN CAROLYN WILLIAMS, EDUCATION & COMMUNITY CONNECTIONS MANAGER, AT&T PERFORMING ARTS CENTER
Ann Carolyn Williams: Having this Backstage Spotlight Program here in Dallas, allows these kids to stay in Dallas. Be invested in Dallas. And not have to go to New York, not have to go to LA to be able to receive that kind of training.
SUPER: JOSUE LOZOYA, PROGRAM MEMBER
Josue Lozoya: Going backstage here, the things that they’re able to do. It’s amazing.
SUPER: KYSHANA DONALD, PROGRAM MEMBER
KyShana Donald: It was really really interesting to actually see the dynamics behind what actually makes the show.
SUPER: THANH SY, PROGRAM MEMBER
Thanh Sy: Here, you can be as imaginative as you want.
Ann Carolyn Williams: These kids don’t come from a really wide range of opportunity.
SUPER: JAMES SMETHERS, DIRECTOR OF THEATRE ARTS, W.T. WHITE HIGH SCHOOL
James Smethers: They haven’t seen a lot of plays. They haven’t seen a lot of performance work.
Ann Carolyn Williams: When they start to learn about lights and sound, and rigging and flying.
Weston Keifer: It’s really eye-opening for a lot of them because they don’t understand that there’s a whole other aspect to theatre other then just on stage.
Ann Carolyn Williams: As they finish their program, they will receive a certificate to say, the student has worked for the entire year, and, they’ve completed it. To have something like that in their portfolio or application packet, is huge.
Weston Keifer: What do you guys see wrong with this one?
Students: Too loose!
Weston Keifer: Should I check?
Ann Carolyn Williams: We’ve been able to bring them behind the scenes on a Broadway show. War Horse.
James Smethers: Suddenly it’s like their eyes are opening up and they’re seeing the world from a whole different way.
SUPER: RACHEL HARRAH, THEATRE ARTS DIRECTOR, THOMAS JEFFERSON HIGH SCHOOL
Rachel Harrah: When we come back from this program, I have kids that are starting the discussion. ‘Miss! So let’s talk about this! What was that?’ They’re pushing the class forward. And so their grades, are skyrocketing.
James Smethers: There are thousands of jobs in these fields. And we need to be teaching people how to do these things.
Josue Lozoya: I definitely want to major or minor in technical theatre.
KyShana Donald: I wanna try to do a double-major now.
Thanh Sy: This is what I actually want to do to make a living.
Ann Carolyn Williams: Without Bank of America, we wouldn’t be able to really do this. The funding that their providing, and the belief that they have in this program, is irreplaceable.
SUPER: LAURA WHITLEY, CONSUMER BANKING SERVICES EXECUTIVE, BANK OF AMERICA
Laura Whitley: The grants that we give to the Backstage Spotlight Program are very focused around education and jobs. Kids are gonna come out of high school into these careers.
Ann Carolyn Williams: Bank of America sees the potential in this program, sees the future. Because I think it’s gonna go a long ways.
Laura Whitley: I believe that it’s a program that we can replicate with other arts organizations across the country.
Ann Carolyn Williams: As we move forward, who knows? The possibilities could be endless.
SUPER: Steve O’Brien, CEO, Reel FX
Steve O’Brien: I read a book about Keith Richards one time, and he said that his father told him do what you love to do and the money will come, it’s good to be reminded of that you know, so people come in and “wow I can’t believe you do this for a living, this looks like so much fun.” And you know what it is, it is fun.
Steve O’Brien: We make animated films, we also make commercials heavy in digital effects and animation.
[Free Birds Copyright Graphic]
SUPER: Travis Tohill, Senior Animator, Reel FX
Travis Tohill: My job as an animator is to essentially put the life into the characters, and it gets pretty silly sometimes, not usually meant for the world to see. It’s one of the few things in life I don’t mind working hard at.
[Free Birds Copyright Graphic]
SUPER: Louie Jones, Senior Animator, Reel FX
Louie Jones: I moved from the west coast for the job here in Dallas, ‘cause it feels a little more special, we’re kinda doing our own thing, you know hoping that we can prove that you don’t have to be on one coast or the other to put out a quality movie.
Steve O’Brien: We moved into this building in 2005, we had 80 employees now we have 385. As we grow and we begin to make more films, Bank of America can do a calculation of how much revenue we’ll do over the life of the film and then we can borrow money against that to make our next films so it’s a very critical piece of our strategy and our business.

SUPER: Donna Henry, CFO, Reel FX
Donna Henry: To have a studio of this size here in Dallas, Texas is just incredible. The people here, the talent is incredible and it’s just a ton of fun to work here.

SUPER: David Parrish, Head of Production, Reel FX
David Parrish: So people said 20 years ago, you can’t make movies or animated films in Dallas, Texas, and now it’s a little different, we’ve got our first feature coming out.
[Free Birds Copyright Graphic] Steve O’Brien: If you’re passionate about what you’re doing no matter what is is, success will follow.

RTP- Dallas Top Golf- As Produced Transcript
SUPER: Robert Dodson, General Manager, Top Golf
Robert Dodson: When somebody first comes into Top Golf, their jaw kind of hits the floor, because there’s nothing out there that any other golf course offers.
Lindsey Elliot: Event Sales, Top Golf
Lindsey Elliot: We explain it as here as darts, golf and bowling all in one. You’re in bays, which is kind of like bowling lanes, and you take turns trying to hit the ball into big targets.
SUPER: Randy Starr, Chief Development Officer, Top Golf
Randy Starr: And we have full-service food and beverage facilities to your hitting bay. Comfortable lounge-style seating. It’s like one big party.
SUPER: Mr. Lee, customer
V/O(Mr. Lee:) Everybody doesn’t have to play golf, they can watch television. The food’s great. It’s just a good, real good place, to kick back and relax and have family time or just watch the game, and practice on my swing at the same time. So it’s, you know it’s like the ultimate man-cave for me.
Randy Starr: So when you come to a bay, you swipe your card, you can then decide which game you want to play. The most common game is called ‘Top Golf’. Once you’re all set up in the game screen, you wave your club that signals that it’s time for a ball to be dispensed. A ball is then released from inside the dispenser, and it’s read by an I.D. ball-scanner that scans your ball, and the game begins.
V/O(Randy Starr:) Bank of America, was there for us, when we were still a fledgling concept, in need of support. What surprised us is that they were willing, when other banks weren’t, to take a little bit of a risk, a little bit of a leap of faith on this new concept called Top Golf. You know three years ago, we weren’t expecting Bank of America to be the one to actually take that leap of faith and we’re really glad they did.
V/O(Randy Starr:) We’re expanding nationally. We want to be in the Northeast. People everywhere want a unique form of entertainment and people are always looking for a reason to get into the sport of golf.
Randy Starr: A lot of landlords are now looking to us as a unique anchor tenant. Because we bring that valuable demographic. And we’re patented. No one else can do what we’re doing. We’re really on the path to success here for this concept. And it’s starting right now.

RTP- Dallas- North Texas Food Bank- As Produced Video Transcript
SUPER: Jan Pruitt, President/CEO, North Texas Food Bank
Jan Pruitt: I sit across the desk every day and see men cry, and women cry, because they didn’t have enough resources to feed their kids.
SUPER: Craig Panza, CEO, Voice of Hope Youth Ministry
Craig Panza: It shouldn’t be that a family has to wonder where their next meal is coming from. It shouldn’t be that kids go hungry, you know. Especially in a country that has access to resources.
Jan Pruitt: We’re still struggling with accepting the fact that there are forty-nine million Americans that are food-insecure. And the fact that it’s a child or it’s a senior or it’s a family that one or two people in the household works. This is our country’s, I think, biggest challenge.
Craig Panza: The census said that West Dallas, is the eleventh poorest community in the entire nation.
Jan Pruitt: One in four children are unsure of where their next meal will come from. The North Texas Food Bank has eleven different distribution-type programs. Whether it is a mobile pantry, or our community kitchen. There are also Kids Café sites. And so if there are children for a mentoring or tutoring program, we supply a hot meal for that program.
Craig Panza: Voice of Hope is serving more than 200 students on a daily basis, Monday through Friday. Without the North Texas Food Bank that would absolutely not be possible. They are the source for easily ninety percent of our food.
Richard Holt: The North Texas Food Bank is one of the best organizations in the North Texas area. It’s been around for thirty years. And they serve roughly ninety thousand meals a day. Still a lot of growth because the need, is probably three times that.
Jan Pruitt: Well Bank of America’s a good example of that corporate citizenship that comes to the table. Their resources, sometimes is money. And we always like that. It’s also volunteers.
We’re out here constantly. I mean, today is just another day. I’ve been out here and we’ve had close to two hundred volunteers at one point.
SUPER: Rolando Richards, Volunteer
Rolando Richards: Being a volunteer for something like this is tremendous for me. You know, it’s emotional for me as well. Cause when you look around you realize this is growing to a significant magnitude.
Jan Pruitt: We look at companies like Bank of America as being able to bring us best practices. Bring us volunteers and bring us resources. Bank of America brought all three of those components through the Neighborhood Builder’s Award.
We’re involved in the community from the very top to the very bottom.
Jan Pruitt: I look in the faces on the kids that we serve and I see such hope. Because these are kids, that if we can keep them adequately fed and get them through school, these kids can be anything in our country.Fighting Smart Against Child Hunger bankofamerica 1359940|enter782|cr-en402 North Texas Food Bank fights smart against child hunger in Dallas. 1359940|enter782|2014_859|| 1359940|enter782|2014_581|| 1359940|enter782|2014_00|| /assets/images/partnering-locally/media-viewer/north-texas-food-bank_400x400.jpg Children eating at North Texas Food Bank

RTP -Dallas-City Square -As Produced Transcript
SUPER: Larry James, President/CRO, City Square
Larry James: The most surprising thing about hunger and poverty and homelessness in Dallas? Is that it exists in a place like this. City Square is a comprehensive human and community development corporation. It’s a non-profit organization. And that includes our public interest law firm, our community-based health care center, our housing arm, our food distribution center. We work with folks who are dealing with the issues associated with poverty.
SUPER: Christopher Oliver, Former Client
Christopher Oliver: I had worked ten years for the Dallas hockey team and when the NHL lockout came in ’04, I got laid off for the first time in my life. And I guess kind of snowballed downhill. I’m an addict at heart. And the deeper I got into it, the worse I got.
Larry James: He was homeless, and headed deeper and deeper into the abyss.
Christopher Oliver: I went to City Square, cause I was desperate.
Larry James: When Chris Oliver came to that resource center he was treated with respect. And he was valued. And in that, is the power necessary to change a life.
Christopher Oliver: City Square is very good at restoring hope in people. Giving people a little bit of hope. If you need food, you can go to the food pantry. And if you need housing, you can apply for housing.
Larry James: He just kept hanging in there and hanging in there, volunteered for a long time. And he did great community work.
Christopher Oliver: Part of my recovery is, working with these people every single day.
V/O(Larry James:) We really believe that people like Chris, given opportunity and resources can solve their own problems.
SUPER: Stan Shipley, Managing Director, Bank of America
Stan Shipley: A lot of these folks, don’t have a lot of good breaks in their life. And they are doing the best they can.
V/O(Larry James:) Stan’s been on our board, from the early days. He’s been a fearless advocate for us.
Stan Shipley: When I first introduced Bank of America folks to City Square. We talked about finding the project that we could work on together.
Larry James: This is the beginnings of the Opportunity Center. It’s going to be a one-stop shop for thousands of persons who are trying to improve their lives. The Opportunity Center is going to allow us to put all the services that City Square provides under one location.
V/O(Larry James:) Bank of America has been incredibly generous. Not only in terms of the funding which is very important. But also in terms of just sort of a seal of approval.
V/O(Stan Shipley:) City Square needs to be able to provide the services and education that’s gonna help get to the root causes of poverty. That’s what’s gonna make a difference in our community.
Larry James: The opposite of poverty is not wealth. The opposite of poverty is justice.
Christopher Oliver: It could be any one of us, at any time, sitting out there on the street, without any hope, and without anywhere to go. And I think all of us would want somebody to extend a helping hand.
Transcript – An innovative, community-based approach to needed medical care
Super: Dr. Ray Tsai- Children’s Medical Center
V/O (Tsai): Children’s Medical Center is one of the top pediatric hospitals of the country, and so as a result we have many families who will travel many hours to come and see some of the top doctors of the country here in Dallas. We’re a not for profit hospital that treats thousands of North Texas children each year regardless of ability to pay. Children were using the emergency room for things that are better taken care of by your primary care doctor, as a result, there were lines outside the emergency room and children who had serious medical issues couldn’t see their ER doctor as quickly as possible.
Super: Gillian Breidenbach- CSR Market Manager, Bank of America
V/O (Breidenbach): Children’s Medical Center found locations throughout the city and they placed “My Children’s Clinics” in these communities that need the most help. It enables mom and dad to take their child into the doctor’s office, get what they need and not have to spend time in the emergency waiting room.
V/O (Tsai): My Children’s was designed to be a primary care medical home for children in their community. We provide vaccinations, screenings, well-child checks, physicals and visits from anything from runny noses to ear infections.
Parent #1: Bringing in my son today, I was much more up to bringing him for something very mild because it was so easy. To come here, to get him in, versus if I had to drive him 30 or 40 minutes to major medical centers downtown, I would’ve waited until it was more severe, so I think it creates healthier kids.
V/O (Tsai): Our goal is that you see the same doctor or nurse practitioner every time you’re here. This provides continuity of care. We believe this helps enhance the relationship between provider and the families.
Parent #2: It’s important I have the same pediatrician every time I come here so I don’t have to explain previous history. I’m not starting over, and that’s great, because then you’re trying to remember when [was the] the last time you saw them, what medication…
V/O (Tsai): Bank of America has been a tremendous supporter of Children’s Medical Center and My Children’s for many years.
Breidenbach: Not only do we lend them money and we bank many of their staff, but our associates are very very active in volunteer events. By supporting them through the business side of our world and also the philanthropic side of our world, it’s a win for everybody involved.
V/O (Tsai): We provide better primary care, we provide education to families, we help them stay healthier, and overall we make a healthier community, and without Bank of America’s support we couldn’t have done any of that.
