Taking on something new

Just less than a year ago, I found out I’d be working on creating a documentary, one about environmental issues in Sri Lanka — a country I barely knew anything about, and a kind of project I was pretty inexperienced in.

Now I’m about to embark on my second documentary project, but this one’s been something I’ve planned since the fall of my sophomore year. Tentatively called “Health for All,” the movie’s going to be about alternatives to public and private health care in India — two systems that can leave villagers and impoverished citizens without adequate options.

This is a pretty intense undertaking for a number of reasons: it will be 45 to 70 minutes, most likely; the research needs to be extensive; we’ll be working with probably hundreds of people to get this done, even more than the Sri Lanka one; and we have a long way to go just to get it set up.

But I’m hopeful, it’s shaping up to be a really interesting project. So check it out, we’d love any visits to our site we can get:
