With October being Domestic Violence Awareness Month, I wanted to post the results of an old project. About three years ago I did a collaboration project with one of my clients Arica Dawkins to create a Public Service Announcement photo slideshow on domestic violence. Arica came to me with the vision and with some amazing makeup work from MUA Akira Banks and dramatic lighting, we created a sobering reminder of a national problem that afflicts many. The message in the video is clear – Don’t remain silent any long about domestic violence. While the theme was serious the shoot itself was very interesting with me playing model and photographer at times. From the cameo appearances to the voice overs in the audio, we utilized everything at our disposal to bring this idea to life.
Check out the final product and remember to SPEAK OUT against domestic violence!
