the homeless

i just want to share a clip i made about the homeless. i have been thinking about them a lot in the last few days with the sub zero temps we have been hit with.

there is nothing special as far as production value on the clip.

Well done

Well done. Was it a 2 camera shoot or just 1?

I think you're selling yourself short here Don. To me production value is about communicating a message and evoking an emotion. You have done that here in spades. You have inspired me. I work a lot with homeless guys and was supposed to do a video 2 months ago for a homeless ministry but they ran out of money for the project. I'm going to call them today and tell them there will be no charge for the video. Thank you for putting this on my heart once again. I think we're all worried about our businesses and it's easy to forget that what we receive by giving to others is immeasurable.

Man, I've been wanting to do something local and community-oriented and this is a great idea.

What a great video. Good job on this one!

I think in today's economy situation, with job losses all around us, that this video literally just takes my breath away. I personally worry about how many weddings I can book this year to only add to our comfort of living, while these people are out there worrying if they are going to make it through another night or have food to eat the next day. Inspirational to say at the least! Thanks for sharing and I did post it in my blog also!

Your video is special in that it has inspired and its value is the fact that you've raised awareness.

Great video.....do you mind if I ask what you used for a mic? Great audio sound.

And video too.

Thank you.
