stills for film

When Lynne and I began working together on the Change the Truth films, we knew right away that we made a good team. We’re very good friends, we compliment each other’s styles and we are respectful of one another’s creative flow and work habits. Most of all, we simply enjoy being and working together!

We are presently hammering out our second project for Kansas City’s Operation Breakthrough. It’s a video that will be shown at the annual fundraiser in April to 800 people. Lynne is the filmmaker; I am the photographer. The film will tell the stories of several of the children who go to the center – through their own eyes and in their own voices.

Last night we had to shoot some “B roll” material – at night in the urban core. I was pleased with a few of the pictures I made. Most important, Lynne and I both feel good about the shape the piece is taking and the opportunity we both have been given to make it happen.
