Reeling in the Inspiration
Posted by Alden Paras, communications assistant
Not much can be said to describe inspiration. But it's a feeling that you can make a difference, that you can be a part of something greater than yourself. Inspiration can come from a random experience, or it can be called into action.
This idea—the concept of triggering inspiration in others—is just one reason for Lights Camera Help.
Another is to showcase the great films-for-a-cause that are created around the world and in your own backyard every year.
Last year’s winner was a feature length documentary by Layton Blaylock called “Art From the Streets.” The trailer can be viewed here.
It's an impressive film that sheds light on the experience of homelessness and how one nonprofit program gives homeless artists a chance to help themselves through their own creativity.
Anyone planning on attending this year should expect to be similarly impressed and, hopefully, inspired. With almost 100 more entries than last year, Lights.Camera.Help. judges had a larger pool from which to pick the very best films-for-a-cause in 2010.
You can visit the Lights Camera Help blog to take a look at the 2010 list of videos that was just announced last week. For your convenience, I have provided a couple of sneak-peeks below.
