My brain on film

I will tell you in advance there is a lot of photos here Smile But that is part of the focus on the week- the visual!

This week has been totally different than our normal work flow. We have a media team here from Canada who is making a DVD of our Girls at Risk school. A 5 minute whirlwind tour of this program, these girls, and why this whole project is close to our hearts, and hopefully yours too!

With the permission of the parents, we have had the awesome team of Greg and Laura filming the girls at school, in some homes, markets etc. It has been a lot of fun to work this week on the long term vision of the project and to express it in a visual way that my photographic-inclined mind really enjoys! So much fun (and hard work) learning how to be a “producer” and put my brain on film! A scary concept!

The finished product will be available early this Fall!  Here are some of the events we captured on film at the school… (while greg was shooting video I was getting digital snaps)

We shot one of the girls (and the crowds of people, food, etc) in markets.

Crowds of kids loved Greg’s big camera.

The meat market brings back a lot of memories of our time in Africa - I always got in trouble for bringing home meat with too much fat!
