Documentary Film: The Director's Cut
Here is a very rough draft of a short film we worked on with a Ghanaian filmmaker named Jacob. Yes, the music is a little hokey, my part probably shouldn't be there, and some of the Margaret's (the head nurse of the HOPE Center) discussion of the HOPE Center's activities needs to be cut out.
But, I think that it's a really good start, and something we can use the raw footage from to piece together a couple of videos for different purposes. I think a short one - 3 to 5 minutes tops - will be very useful for our GlobeMed and Global Giving websites. Then, perhaps we can create a couple of longer versions for use during presentations to student groups, churches, or other venues.
Again, this is only a first draft. But, let me know what you think. What's good and what needs to go?
