My film project will follow the personal stories of a few volunteers in the Austin community. My intent is threefold:
1) to create awareness of the diversity of people involved, what they do, and what motivates them.
2) educate on the opportunities available in our community and how they impact others.
3) empower people to get involved on a personal level, and understand that one person CAN make an impact.
There are countless people and organizations available to feature, but part of what makes this such a personal story is that I want to feature those volunteers who truly inspire and amaze me - whether through their dedication, addiction, creativity - and the organizations that are close to my heart - Capital Area Food Bank, Blue Dog Rescue, Girlstart, South by Southwest, and Reggae/Hot Sauce Fests. I realize the caveat of making an "Austincentric" film, but I want to recognize how Austin has a uniqueness in the grassroots volunteer network.
