Being Busy

I've somehow convinced my self to work 3 jobs on top of the volunteer work that I do. In all of it's various forms it's a contribution to peace, so I have no major complaints other than I'm really looking forward to my holiday vacation. :)

Most recently I've started an Assistant Editing gig with Sirena Films, working on documentary that is taking a hard look at the current situation in Kosovo. It's heart wrenching to see how much ethnic fear there still exists among the Serbs and the Albanians. To me they've created these invisible lines that they threaten each other from. It's like when I was a child looking out the airplane window and seeing that there were no actual borders that separated nations. Why? Why?

Also since August, I have been editing a documentary that is exploring one woman's spiritual journey to heal herself and the world. It's like the saying, "When you meditate for yourself, you meditate for the world" We've got a couple more months of work on it and the process of carving out a story out of hundreds of hours of footage is exciting. Anyways here's a link to the production company August Moon Entertainment.

I also have been teaching a music video workshop for inner city Los Angeles teens. The organization is called Live Arts Group. We meet twice a week, and I have been working with a group of five 12-16 yr olds. We just finished shooting two weekends ago and looking forward to screening day in two weeks time.
