Portraits and Behind the Scenes from their Documentary Film Project
We were honoured to once again work with Cara Jones and our buddies at the City of Grande Prairie Youth Council. We’d done some images for them in the past and they asked us to do another round of portraits as well as to shoot some behind-the-scenes images from the making of their original documentary film project. Produced under the mentorship of CIA Solutions, the students have been working on this thing for almost two years!
The film, titled “From Rednecks to Rainbows,” focuses on LGBTQ+ rights and government legislation regarding these issues in Alberta. The documentary will screen on May 4, 2017, at the Grande Prairie Live Theatre. Ticket sales from this event help fund a post-secondary scholarship for a local LGBTQ+ youth in our community.
You can read all about it over at the GP Now website in an in-depth feature story about the Youth Council and the project.
We couldn’t be more impressed with these young people and their work on this important subject. We have no doubt their work will have a real impact. Congratulations to all involved!
