Reel World Youth Docs: Capturing the Moment

After many months of students madly grabbing cameras at the beginning of the day, in the middle of the day and on their way out the door we have neared the end our project.  It has been similar to watching an army prepare for war, except instead of war we are preparing to fight for hope.  We have geared up, tripods in hand, cameras slung over shoulders, recorders sticking out of our pockets, yelling for someone to grab whatever we’ve forgotten and we’ve headed out to find inspirational stories.

When you’re right in the middle of a project this huge it’s often hard to communicate what’s so unique about what you’re doing.  It’s hard to see it even for yourself.  This is where Chris Hsiung enters in.  Chris has done an amazing job of capturing each moment of this project and using film as a tool to show what we’ve done.  Too often I think in life our biggest supporters don’t have a chance to see the things we’re most proud of but Chris has made it possible for both me and my students to show what we’ve been doing, to explain the process and inspire others to try it for themselves.  Hope you enjoy seeing what we’ve been up to!

    • Thanks so much Baneen! Believe it or not, receiving encouragement from you is huge! Keep encouraging others – it has the power to give someone the strength they need to continue to do good. Sometimes the most important thing we can do is support others.
