We had the privilege of working this spring with the Colorado Shakespeare Festival this spring to produce a video highlighting it’s anti-bullying curriculum. Actors performed an abridged (but especially physical) production of “The Taming of the Shrew”, followed by a workshop for students to discuss the incidents of bullying they had just seen. It was a great experience for us and for the kids, and hopefully the video will help get the word out about Safe2Tell, an anonymous tipline that is helping Colorado schools become safer places.
Documentary films are always a long journey. After three years of filming and five trips to Uganda, we are well into the edit process on Neenee Productions’ film “Sauti (Voice)” tracing the lives of teenage girls growing up in the Kyangwali refugee settlement, in northern Uganda. We’ve fallen in love with the “girls” (they are now young women) and look forward to sharing their stories.
Our filmmaking journeys have spanned over two decades, four continents, and a broad range of subjects. We produce feature documentaries, educational and training videos, non-profit awareness pieces, oral histories, and more. We take pride in our ability to collaborate with others, working with everyone from professional producers to people with no film experience but a passion to tell their stories. Here’s a brief look back at our work so far.
