Mayor Tom Bradley Video Tribute at LAX

Jason Jenn produced a special centennial celebration video designed by Jon 9 to former LA Mayor Tom Bradley at the LAX International Termial.


The video was made by Holonyne Corporation (Jenn was Operations Director from 2014-2019) for JCDecaux and LAWA (Los Angeles World Airports) for the 72 foot video display Time Tower in the departures lounge at the Tom Bradley International Terminal. An unveiling of the video to the public was held on January 30, 2017. It marked the centennial year for Tom Bradley, who served 5 terms as Los Angeles mayor from 1973-1993.

Tom Bradley worked his way up the ranks in the LAPD, dealing with its troubled history of abuse and racism. From there he became one of the first African American city council members,  and eventually ran for mayor. He lost his first attempt, but tried again, this time building a diverse coalition of voters – who rallied behind him. In 1973 he became the first black mayor of a large metropolitan city and worked hard to create a very inclusive city government, one that truly represented the population. He led efforts to build the Metro system, revitalize the downtown area, and hosted the first financially successful Olympic games in 1984 (thereby creating a model for future city’s to learn from) all while being a great family man. These elements (and more) were worked into the beautiful tribute piece created by Jon9 involving a series of B&W photographs over colorful city backgrounds
