Seeds of Change
WHAT I DID
Sometimes you meet a subject who just shakes you out of your own head and inspires you to do more and be more. Denzel Mitchell was one of those subjects. This emmy-award nominated video shares Washington’s story of adversity, and his ability to set a new path for himself through a discovered connection with growing food and gardening. It’s a wonderful story that hits my storytelling cornerstones of inspiring and connecting the audience to authentic people. In this story I took a more traditional producer role and had a DP / editor so that I could focus all my energy on connecting with Denzel and draw out his story. I also helped direct shots at the garden with the other participants and interviewed the Youth Garden Works staff.
