The film was a labor of love. As the Director of Dance & Film for an inner city middle school who was on the brink of shutting down, the students needed a lifeline of hope, inspiration, as well as a way to find their own voice. As a Christian and educator, I wanted to capture the landscape of a world that many shy away, especially when it comes to our culture.
With a Canon 5E Marl V, an iPhone 10 xr, and the hungry hearts of the students, I along with the DP set out to capture the beginning moments of this journey.
It was a challenge because we had no dance studio, no traditional dance attire, and It was my first three months as the Director of Dance and Film. The program did not exist. We started from ground zero with bare bones. We had to find ways to capture moments during school hours. During this tome we wanted to build trust with the students who came from foster homes, single parent homes, and so much more. I was blessed to go beyond the four walls of the church and actually find the ministerial platform within the public-school system. To God be the glorify!
