For a new short documentary called “Almost”, I’m issuing a call and invitation to participate in a simple, but what I believe will be an effective finale. I ‘m seeking short videos of people recording themselves saying a phrase. Videos can be sent to contact (at) flyingwithredhaircrow.com. The deadline is November 11, 2018.
- Approximately 20 seconds in length
- Shoulder height up, neutral or more distant background
- A few “empty” seconds at beginning and end of video for editing purposes.
- Say a little about yourself then end by saying: “I am enough” or “I’m enough”
No matter your background, ethnicity, etc. if you understand and agree with our statement below, you are welcome to participate. We will try to use as many video clips as possible, depending on number submitted. We will provide a short disclaimer/release form we would need you to sign, so we can use your video clip for this documentary. Please submit the form when you send a copy of your video file. MP4 is best. Almost Release Form
Details about the documentary:

Synopsis: Almost normal. Almost acceptable. Almost indigenous. Half, a quarter, a fraction, a piece. Whether it’s gender, sexuality, ethnicity, cognitive or physical abilities…toxic beliefs, ableist and racist structures in western society overwhelmingly continue to target people of color. Some are taking back, reconnecting, decolonizing, and embracing their unique differences in order to heal and be happy. Interviewees share their experiences on growing up in a western society full of Eurocentric history that has generationally misinformed billions, and where stereotypes and labels influence behavior and practices that continue a cycle of harm from which they are determined to break free.
