I work full time producing videos and taking photographs for non-profit organizations in DC. Recently, I went a little outside my comfort zone and created a short film for an international contest. The short was supposed to be about your city, and what better city to focus on then DC. My concept was for a couple to take a trip down memory lane and retake images of themselves in their favorite DC spots.
It has always been a dream of mine to be a filmmaker and I am trying my best to show my 20 month old daughter that anything is possible. So, after a few late nights, and some mornings with my baby eating cheerios on my lap while I edited, I finished my short film and I couldn’t be happier with it. Luckily it was selected as one of the 9 finalists!
The final winner will be decided via a public vote on YouTube. For every like I get on my YouTube video I get one vote. I was hoping you could take a moment and help me achieve this crazy dream of mine. I am up against some stiff competition, including a few California crews who were able to use actual Hollywood actors. In my opinion my local DC cast and crew beat them by a mile, but I could still use a little help getting the word out there.
Please vote for my video here.
Here is also some info on the contest itself.”
