Just got word that I was chosen for a film project creating portraits and an advoacy video on youth in conflict settings and/or natural disasters. Since its youth driven, I'll be bringing an incredible young poet with me to help draw out personal stories through poetry and creative storytelling as well as introducing a new media element for the distribution. We'll start shooting in Feb and then March in the following locations:
for some time now, i've been asked to start blogging about the work i do and i am happy to announce that 2008 will be the year i begin in full force. there are so many wonderful (yet sometimes tragic)and inspiring (yet unbelieveable) behind-the-scenes situations that i have only been able to share with a select few. this will be the space where i will share some of those stories with others. with you. so please feel free to read, post, give love, criticize, whatever you feel inclined to do...i hope this will be a space that will help me strengthen and refine my beliefs in why i do what i do and hopefully to inspire others.
stay tuned for my first blog on the making of my film, LOVE, LABOR, LOSS about obstetric fistula in niger.
