Support Daddy's Girl: A Documentary Film
You can contact me directly:
Watch the first Daddy's Girl documentary here:
Here is my estimated budget and plan:
Travel: Flight Hotel Misc to Florida
My father is buried in Jacksonville, Florida. I haven't visited his grave since his death. I would like to return and document my first encounter with him since, and the entire experience.
Camera Equipment, Film Processing and Digitizing:
Since I am using film, it can become costly. I have to buy actual rolls of film, have them processed(developed) and digitized to edit on a computer.
The film already has it's own website domain and will be able to view on the site along with the entire one year process documentation and much more.
Print Artist Book
This project is not just a class assignment but a life experience for myself and my family. At the conclusion of the film, i will put together a book recording my entire process, evaluations, notes, stored documents such as his letters, photos etc...
I can imagine how difficult it is, wondering about the future, events and the life of your daughter and loved ones. I know for me things may have been harder if my father lived long enough for me to know him and then have him taken away from me. I always tell myself i cant blame anyone for what happens, or happened. I feel like i maybe wouldnt be the person i am today with hopes on changing the world, rather than being changed by it. By really sending the message that family is crucial and the relationship between daughter and father, or simply child and parent is a sacred thing in this life. What keeps me going each day is that i wake up and am alive. I am for the most part healthy, conscious and alive. I remember my high school prom, I was prom queen, my first graduation and all those moments i wish i could speak to my dad and share time with him. But Joseph don't worry about how the future takes place, enjoy and cherish the moments of your life and the life of your daughter. There are so many difficulties in life, but i believe somehow there will be better and brighter days ahead. There is just so much a person can do at one time , but what we can do is value the moments we have and look forward to the future with positivity and i will keep you and your daughter in my prayers and blessings. Don't ever hesitate again if she needs someone to talk to about college, art or anything like that. I appreciate you reaching out to me and all your support and encouragement. =) Stay blessed
Watching the video again put tears in my eyes as I think of my own little girl I was 46 when she was born and I have physical struggles. She is 12 now but I do sometimes wonder will I be at her first prom, her graduation , her wedding, the birth of her child things that every dad wants to be apart of. If I'm able I will send you additional funds later this month Lesley.
