In my video work with Project Jericho, I emphasize that the amazing art being produced is nothing compared to the young people who chose opportunity and positive self-expression over fear and habit. Your audience is more interested in what sets your organization apart than just a mission statement and a list of services.
True stories are more engaging than fiction when they feature transformation and unique character studies through thoughtful documentary filmmaking. I got the honor to experience real-life transformation working as a Project Manager, Executive Producer and Videographer for Project Jericho MY SONG, which gives at-risk youth access to self-expression through original songwriting and recording.
Today’s horror films are centered on gallons of gore and cheap scares, but Alfred Hitchcock understood that fear is more complicated. He didn’t even need color to create fear. This short film is my creative response to an assignment (while working on my Master’s Degree) that challenged us to create a piece that revealed to the audience an “American Proverb.” But I also used this opportunity to pay tribute to Alfred Hitchcock’s elevation of the psychological thriller.
