Seeking Interview Subjects

I am currently searching for members of the South Boston community who would like to share their story about how Whitey impacted their life. With the impending film scheduled to be released this summer, I am hoping to produce a series of short films of Southie residents sharing their experience in their voice. This is […]

Busing Movie 2.0

Here is a rough cut of my work in progress.  This semester has been a whirlwind of personal and professional accomplishments, and the fruits of my labor are being received very well. If you know anyone that would be able to contribute to this project in any way (interviews, archival footage, information, friend of a […]

Narration 4

Trying to write these narrations has been tough.  When I first started out, I was trying to think of a political way to say everything, but that is really just not me.  Eventually I wrote this part as a response to the rough cut screenings I showed at Emerson. A lot of people told me […]

Narration 1

Preparing for Next Two Interviews

In preparing for interviewing the next two mothers, I’ve been faced with an issue of artistic conflict.  I like how I shot my grandmother’s interview (still working on screen captures), but it doesn’t fit in with my initial vision of how I wanted to shoot people.  I pictured more of an interview with a black […]

Busing Interview #1 Post Mortem

I think that this interview was quite successful.  I wound up with 2 Arri 650 watt lights and a 1,000 watt softbox.  I used the two 650’s, and threw a little Lowell kick light behind.  One of the problems I had was that my interview subject (my grandmother) was that she was getting ready to […]
