My name is Kaylynn Sims. I am a 19 year old film enthusiast, mostly documentaries, and I have joined the community to become more educated about flims and the documentary filmmaking process.
I currently have a documentary project that I am in the very beginnning stages of making.
Although it may seem to be a bit adolscent, I am making a documentary on my mother. Who was a teenaged drug dealer who had a child at 16. She has overcome many obstacles, and still struggles to this day to make things work. My mother is currently middle-aged and still has to hustle to make ends meet around the house. I believe that her ambition and her strife should be shared with the world.
The title of the film is called 37 Flamingoes, and I am still trying to learn about the very basics of filmmaking. I have taken a few online courses for beginnner things such as vocab and which cameras and equiptment to buy, but I would like other general advice, and it would be great to hear from anyone who would be interested in viewing the film. Just to make sure that this is something that people would actually enjoy watching.
