Last week I studied with Bob Sacha at Maine Media Workshops in a multi-media masterclass where we worked on condensing interviews into two minute stories. In the process of the project, I discovered that Robin Elms who performs at-home euthanasia for pets in Maine, would make a wonderful subject for a larger documentary about what care-taking for a pet really means and the implications for how we care-take for one another especially as we grow older.
A post with the new film I made for The One Language Project. Many more to come over the next few weeks in different styles - all related to the human/non-human animal connection. In other exciting news, Mass. General Hospital has accepted the proposal to show the portraits of dogs and accompanying owner essays in the Yawkey Clinic in 2013. I am so grateful for this opportunity to share this powerful and healing work in that environment.
