Watch the Second Reloaded Video
Thursday, April 26, 2012
Editor's Note: This is the second in a series discussing why finalists from the NATCA Reloaded "Quick Flicks" video finalists thought their video embodies their NATCA spirit.
This week we're featuring San Juan CERAP's (ZSU) NATCA Reloaded "Quick Flicks" contest video that showed their NATCA pride and unity. In the video, members talk about how they wear their red Solidarity t-shirts every Friday to show their NATCA spirit.
"It shows our unity and I love it," said creator of the "Quick Flicks" video Orlando Alvarado. "I always wished I could let the rest of NATCA know that we're doing this. So when I saw the competition I knew that I had to show how we wear our red shirts. I invite the entire NATCA family to have red Fridays with the red NATCA Solidarity t-shirts."
Orlando wanted to have some action in the video. Therefore, he decided to show members gathered together off the clock in their NATCA biking wear. Orlando filmed NATCA members on a biking trail next to Carolina Beach adjacent to the ZSU facility.
NATCA President Paul Rinaldi and NATCA Executive Vice President Trish Gilbert recently played their video while they were visiting, and Orlando said all the members were excited to see it. He's thrilled that it will be going up on the NATCA Member's Web site this week so that those who haven't had a chance to see the video can view it anytime.

What Producer, Ricardo J. Martinez from MIA had to say about his "Quick Flick" video:
"The Quick Flicks guidelines asked for each facility to create a short
clip that shows the facility’s NATCA spirit by demonstrating the
facility’s activism, solidarity, pride, and professionalism. I realized
that all I had to do was press 'record' and let things play themselves
out. I was searching for reactions from people which I then realized
occur every day in MIA.
"All the smiles, laughter, friendships, and interactions that were
portrayed in the video are just an imagery of the facility as a whole.
I’m happy the video was able to depict that because it really is the way
this local interacts with one another and is the main reason our local
is exceptionally strong and united."
