Part-time Student, Full-time Homeless
WHAT I DID
Michael is a trans youth who has been struggling with experiencing homelessness and trying to complete courses at Everett Community College. He shares his everyday struggle of living as a homeless student. I Produced this video with Jen Germain for Spark Public. We spent an entire day with Michael from sun up to sun down, in addition to a day of studio shooting and it was a very emotional experience. As DP and technical producer, I was tasked with directing Michael and getting the shots I needed, while also maintaining an emotional connection and empathy for such a vulnerable young man who was struggling with some deep personal hurt.
