I'm headed to Liberia this Saturday, the 7th.
Overall, I am extremely excited as well as apprehensive about the whole thing. The need for change in Liberia is obvious, and I am happy to be getting involved, but the area and situation is not the safest. Walking around with expensive camera gear in order to complete my documentary won't help the situation either, but I'm sure it will be okay.
My goal is to create three videos: a documentary and two short films (which will be a surprise).
Im hoping to shed light on the extreme situations in Liberia and what the people have endured over the years. From the corruption in the government, to rural conditions, disease outbreak, and more, the people are some of the most resiliant I have ever heard of. I am very excited to meet and understand them more, but my fear lies in the physical aspect of the trip, not the goal.
