Documenting the lived experience and human condition



I recently set up my camera and audio gear to record a behind the scenes of myself and Jeremy discussing the song he is going to write, while watching edited clips showcasing the first featured story from Artbeat of the City that I’m making: Artful Journey of Life. This behind the scenes video is only part of our creative brainstorming session.

Jeremy Famà is writing the song for this featured story about Harry Moodshade Richards, a street artist in Portland, Oregon who used his art to overcome his addictions and homelessness.
