My talented mentor, Caryn Sanchez, is filming a documentary called Sounds Like Colorado, where she takes road trips around the state, finding music and the best stories to document. She interviewed two incredible young musicians (one was eleven, the other was fourteen) at her studio at Artworks Loveland, and I was invited to help set up the camera equipment, arrange seating, etc. I also shot some footage on my own and documented the filming process for my own learning. This event meant a lot to me, as a budding filmmaker and very invested young person. I loved working with so many brilliant and creative people who were following their passions, being themselves, and successfully shaping their lives into the beautiful pieces they wanted to them to be. It was extremely inspiring. I created a slideshow using the photographs and video clips I'd taken to document the documentary process we employed that day. Please enjoy!
