Thirst was invited by AIA Chicago to create a short tribute film to Stanley Tigerman, the recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 58th Annual AIA Chicago Design Excellence ceremony.
Ten luminary Chicago architects were hand-selected by Stanley to share their thoughts about his impact on the architectural discipline to an audience of over 900 architects, developers, clients, and friends.
Some feedback from those in the audience:
A magnifico vid, you transformed the stale documentary model into a multi-personalized tribute that cut right thru the (carefully perpetuated) Stanley-fog... super work as usual.

Eva Maddox stole the show! And David Woodhouse too with that line on 'never less than more.' Bravo to Thirst for letting personalities shine and making the character-rich rather than the beautiful take center stage. Yes, it was graphically gorgeous, but that goes without saying!
The other thing is that video…
