I am producing a program for residents (inmates) in the London, Ohio prison in which I serve as a volunteer. The program is the brainchild of a resident who “was not scared straight by the Scared Straight program.” It is directed toward at-risk youth, mostly non-caucasian. Each “volume” – we are currently producing volume II – consists of 1 or 2 residents talking about trauma and how to escape the effects of trauma and consists of 3 rap videos written & composed by residents. I am producing these at no cost … just me, camera, audio and lights using residents as grips and other support.
I was really surprised when Volume I was so well received throughout halfway houses in Ohio. (So I am told. They ordered 100 dvds) So, I want to improve upon Volume I as I produced Volume II. Basically, I want to add b-roll footage of kids living their trauamas. i.e. on the streets. I won’t bore you with the details of why I can’t go shoot the footage. My question is this: Do you have any footage of “at-risk” youths, age 5 to 20, that are experiencing trauma in their life?
Thank you and God bless you for any help that you can give me.
