Examples of my work in support of:

L.A. City Council member Paul Krekorian's mission to stop "runaway production". 

A grassroots coalition out to end the economic exile of working class people in gentrified areas of South Central. 

A funding pitch for a new Works Progress Administration to document the success of the President's American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

The Los Angeles Student Media Festival Spec Promo

The goal: inspire a high school student to make a short film, because it's doable, and because there's an audience for it. 

City Council member Paul Krekorian conceived the LASMF as part of a larger effort to fight “runaway production” - the loss of jobs and revenue when movies and television shows are filmed outside Los Angeles.  Nurturing a generation of young filmmakers for whom shooting in L. A. is second nature is one way Krekorian hopes to reverse this trend.
Values

As USC students, faculty and administrators compete for space in the neighborhoods that surround the campus, working class people are priced out of the area.  That's why residents of South Los Angeles formed UNIDAD - United Neighbors In Defense Against Displacement.

It's also why "gentrification" has a bad connotation: it often leads to the displacement of pre-existing communities.
Gangstaz of the SC

A stereotype: USC is in a "bad neighborhood", where a wrong turn might lead into a gangland jungle. But it's the university itself that's been the biggest instigator of turf wars.
Used To Be A City Street

USC's main thoroughfare, Trousdale Parkway, used to be a city street. Whose street has to be sacrificed next to accommodate the university's expansion?

An adornment for the venue where the UNIDAD campaign was launched - 
a loop around the neighborhoods with something at stake in the campaign's quest for economic justice and governmental accountability.
The New New Deal

What photography was to President Roosevelt's New Deal, Brave New Foundation's activist videos and online distribution campaigns would be to President Obama's American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.  That was our pitch to philanthropic organizations as we sought funding for our Citizens as Video Activists Program.  I produced this video to accompany our applications.
