Film/Digital Media Student needed to film premier of stage production (New Orleans)
BLACK BOYS DON'T SHOOT is an intense, experimental theater production aiming to cease gun fire on black youth across the globe. BBDS tackles the history-long obstacles and violence-dense ideology faced by and taught to black boys (particularly in America) from the 1700's until now. The objective of Black Boys Don't Shoot is to help members of the community re-establish the village mentality. We aim, with this production, to bring responsibility back to self while bringing accountability back to the entire community (the village). The production follows ten scripted monologue passages that discuss the effects of abandonment during slavery, the judicial system, poverty and fatherhood. Black Boys Don't Shoot discusses solutions for becoming better men by seeking the divine within ourselves and mentoring young men.
We want to document the debut of the stage show, planned interviews with public figures and audience reaction. That's where you come in! We want to give you the opportunity to be part of this experience and use what you create as part of your own personal portfolio. This is a fantastic chance for a budding videographer or media student to get practical experience and be a part of something beautiful and groundbreaking.
