Wow, what a week. TWO productions I worked on have been launched, I’m so thrilled.
The second is a documentary that I worked on as cinematographer for Wear It Purple this month.
Wear It Purple
Wear It Purple are an inspiring youth organisation that’s key purpose is to support GLBTIQ (gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer) youth.
They exists in order to raise public awareness on the issues surrounding rainbow youth suicide. Run by students, they aim to stop the ignorance, bullying and suicides.
They have a simple message: “You have the right to be proud of who you are”.
Wear It Purple Documentary
The documentary was made in time for Mental Health month (October). It was an opportunity to promote the positive mental health of all people. This documentary aims to show rainbow young people that they are loved, respected and never alone.
I had a lot of fun working on this doco. We kept the crew to a minimum, traveled about the city and kept the coverage simple. I was impressed by the amount of video submissions we received, so many that unfortunately not all of them could be included in the final cut of the doco.
Thanks to everyone who played a part in making this documentary.
