Struggle and Hope: The Crown Jewel, Boley Oklahoma

Very proud of the latest minidoc I did with Kari Barber about Oklahoma's surviving all-black towns and the freed slaves and their descendants who built them while fleeing oppression and persecution. We are working on minidocs while also preparing a full-length documentary, Struggle and Hope. This short video is packed with wisdom, history and lively rural life. It is people's history we too often have ignored and missed out on.

#thisishomelessness Helping At-Risk Kids in Reno, NV

Here's the first prish video I've ever done, still in the documentary style though. It played at the ‪#‎thisishomelessness‬ ‪#‎eddypalooza‬ event last night, April 2nd, 2015, to herald the opening of a new resource center for at-risk and homeless youths in Reno, Nevada. The video also celebrates the ongoing, tireless and exemplary work of the amazing mother/son duo Lynette Eddy and Brian Eddy. Brief cameos with Debbie Torres McCarthy, Nick Tscheekar, "Junk Mob", Corey McDowell, Pat Cashell and Oliver X who participated in the homeless advocacy living on the streets for 48 hours to reach out and make a difference.
