Do Good Bus is a nonprofit in the LA area with a mission to connect people and make an impact on society. Love Merlin’s heart and loved editing this piece!
Project Rescue, a non-profit that works to rescue and restore women and children from sexual slavery, started in 1997 with a phone call in the middle of the night.
This is their story.
I traveled to Ethiopia and filmed some impacting stories. It was the BEST TRIP I've ever been on so far, and I can't emphasize enough how much God's presence and anointing was on it. I prayed so much for God to direct me as I filmed, and then direct me as I edited, and then to use it to touch hearts- and He has done so!!
Tim started playing professional soccer in Ukraine since he was a young boy, but when he tears his ACL, he will have to figure out what to do with his life.
The young kids from the brothels caught Devaraj’s heart, he sees them as his own daughters. His love for the girls leads him on a quest to rescue them.
This amazing and beautiful girl is Kila. As crazy as it seems, she was bullied and people made fun of her looks when she was a kid. Her story has some dark moments, but I love how God transformed her life!
Collaboration project with Prospect Arts, my role was to edit this story.
People are “doing their business” on the hill, and then kids are going up there barefoot to play. This is causing some health issues.
In a poor, small village in Dominican Republic, one of the main issues is proper hygiene and health, Ivelisse tells us how Food for the Hungry has impacted their village.
When my brother called me over a year ago and asked if I would do his Wedding Film, I said, "Ok! But you have to give me creative freedom because I want to do it more like a documentary, sharing your whole story."
Thankfully they were on board with that and I started to plan! I spent many hours talking with them over the phone, interviewing their family and friends, planning and coordinate shoots on their busy wedding week, and figuring out how this story was going to be structured.
The goal was always the same: To honor and bring glory to God.
It's been a long process, but it's such a treasure to be able to share a story that gives testimony to the faithfulness of God- and how he truly loves us so much.
I only met Lali Wagner once to film this story, but she left an impact on me. Her devotion and perseverance to keep working for the Lord even through some incredibly hard trials, was super inspirational for my own faith.
It was about time to freshen up my reel. Most if not all of the clips are from projects I've worked on in the past year. Highlights are music video, Ethiopia film, and Grinch promo (which are all on my page as well.) Enjoy!
