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 3

I am going to introduce this part just after my media segment.  I was having difficulty joining the talk about the media to a segment where they talk about a Haitian cab driver in Southie (somehow there’s always a Haitian anecdote hovering around me).

The Artistic Flavour

Now that I’m starting to get my ducks in a row for my thesis project (Busing in South Boston during the 1970’s), I’m really starting to consider how I want the look of this piece to be.  Like many documentaries, this story will be captured over the course of atleast two years, shot with different […]
