The Circus Project
I returned to Portland, Oregon to shoot the kids of The Circus Project and their performance of CircOddyssey. It was so great to see the show and hang out with the kids and the artistic director, Jenn Cohen. We filmed the performance and did a few wrap-up interviews. It was brilliant and I am very thankful to do this for a living. I get to meet amazing people and help tell their stories. Meeting people like this is good for the soul, thank you all. There is a song that we sometimes sing around here that that goes like this, “Have you done any good in the world today?” that makes me think of the big hearted Jenn Cohen- that spends her life helping others, Good luck sister. It will play on the TV show "Turning Point" check out the story I did about
young adult dealing with cancer here. (photo: 3 or the 4 kids that were in the show, #4 needed to go to bed for work in the morning)
