This is a documentary about coming of age in impoverished areas of New Orleans where as many as 200 young kids will die this year due to violence.
"Murder Through the Eyes of a Child" is a documentary about the murder rate in New Orleans and it's disproportionate effect among young black males. It's these young men who account for over eighty percent of the murders. The project is unique in that the film makers have been running an outreach program giving classes in documentary film making to under privileged kids for months now, and they have taken the best students and armed them with HD camera packages so that they can document there own lives, neighborhoods, schools, and the situations that they find themselves in. While they are doing that the film makers are shooting a more traditional documentary focusing on the views of politicians, police officers, activists, and academics about the murder crisis. The idea is to juxtapose the difference between the views of policy makers and the reality for these young people.
The money raised for the project will go the the purchase of insurance to protect the children, filmmakers and crew that work on the project. Some funds will purchase equipment insurance for rental on cameras, grip, electric for photography of the doc. Additional monies will help support the ongoing project which is two days a week for a total of 8 hours(often more) as well as financing some rental of equipment to shoot the documentary.
