Telling stories through a camera

VIDEO: Second Chance Documentary

I produced, shot and edited a short documentary titled Second Chance using a Canon C100, GoPro Hero 7, Adobe Premiere and After Effects.

The story focuses on some of the inmates of the Southern Maine Women Reentry Center who heal and put themselves together volunteering every day at the Maine State Society for the Protection of Animal, a shelter for abused and neglected horses. The stories of the inmates and the horses are similar, as they start to recovery and be ready for a new life.
