Today we are launching the Kronos “1 in One Hundred Million” video series to celebrate US workers. Our technology touches over 35 million people around the world every day – and every one of their stories is different. This video series will focus on how each of the individuals featured feels about his or her job – and the ways in which those jobs shape them as individuals.
Our first story features Chris Merrick, a 34-year veteran firefighter from Brookline, Massachusetts. You can hear about Chris and his love for his job and his firefighting brothers below. I dare you to get through this story without getting a little teary.
The series features interviews by Lea Thau, a Peabody Award-winning producer and director, who created The Moth Radio Hour and produces and hosts the podcast “Strangers”. The series is directed by five-time Emmy® award-winning director and producer Alan Chebot, founder of Parallax Productions and best known for the nationally syndicated TV series “The Wild Wild Web” and acclaimed documentary “Song for New Orleans”.
You can view a trailer for the series at 1in100Million.com and get a preview of the first three episodes that will be released. Tell us what you think about these stories. And is there somebody whose story you’d like to see us include in this series?
