The Short Film

I’m calling this a short film, because it’s actually the longest video I’ve done. I’ve been working with Happy Black Woman for a little over a year now and over the summer, I had the opportunity to shoot an E:60 style story video with the founder of Happy Black Woman. We shot this over three days in Coronado, a beach town just over the San Diego Bay bridge. We shot mostly in Rosetta’s home and on the beach. Side note…if you’ve ever listened to the podcast Dirty John, this is there area where all that took place. Crazy! Anyway, we both came with a blank script and formatted the story as we went. It’s really a story of someone who came from a childhood of lack, and created their own path to success. It’s about not living in the mindset you grew up with. This is a 13 minute story, but that’s just what it is. A story. So enjoy a few of these production photos and check out the video on the main page in the portfolio section.
