Nonprofit Video: A Tool for Change

I recently created a 5 part panel series in Washington DC to help nonprofit organizations turn their videos into a tool for change. With expert speakers, many from nonprofits themselves, the panels will focus on the following issues: where to find money for nonprofit video, how to build a robust video strategy, how to work with media professionals, how to turn video into an advocacy tool and innovative uses of nonprofit video.

The series will be held every Friday morning from September 20th through October 18th from 9:00-10:30am at Busboys and Poets on 14th and V in Washington DC. The sessions are affordable and if you sign up for all five, you receive a 20% discount!

Presenting at GWU

Last week I had the pleasure of speaking to a documentary film production class at George Washington University (GWU). I showed some clips from past projects and we talked a lot about lighting. I was grateful to have the opportunity to do a little teaching as well as answer some really great questions posed by the students. Favorite questions included, “What do you do when everything you planned or expected falls apart?” or “Have you ever had a source who would not talk to you?” and “How do you get people to trust you when your in their face with a camera?”

I think we have some great documentarians in the making!

Join the Paper Doll Campaign!

Female condoms are vital in the fight against HIV/AIDS, but they still only account for less than one percent of the global condom supply. They remain unavailable and unaffordable to millions of people.

If you’re in the Washington D.C. area consider attending the Paper Doll campaign and show your support for increased female condom distribution. The event will be hosted by the global health organization PATH, the Center for Health and Gender Equity (CHANGE), and Universal Access to Female Condoms Joint Programme (UAFC).

Giving Birth in a New Land

A story I wrote and photographed for the International Rescue Committee (IRC) has been posted online and was recently picked up by Mothering.com. Here’s an excerpt:

For newly arrived refugee women, the prospect of having a baby in an unfamiliar environment can be overwhelming. “If you have limited English skills, imagine how challenging it can be to find a doctor or clinic and schedule an appointment, and that’s just the beginning,” explains Adrienne Atlee, health program manager for the IRC’s US Programs office in Baltimore.
