Sonya Kitchell a friend who is a singer, songwriter and musician and owner of the Antidote music and songwriting course that she offers. She had shot the footage and wanted to do a 60 sec piece promoting her business. I received the footage and discovered a 60 second cut would not satisfy the needs of what the footage was saying.
To cut short the little gems of the girls singing would not dothe songs justice – they needed length to be able to appreciate the talent that these young girls were showing and also the support and teaching that Sonya provided so ended up being a much longer piece and by doing so gives a holistic view of what this course provides these young girls. It also shows the young women empowerment of sharing and appreciating their efforts which I think is a positive and necessary commitment for society today.
