Last summer, I volunteered a couple of days (because I was too old to qualify to be a participant) to help out a wonderful program that was started by some in the Hollywood community who actually wanted to do good by Israel. It is called Jewish Impact Films. They had 20-30 young aspiring filmmakers being tutored by industry folks on how to make 30-60-second films that are pro-Israel. They inspired me to try this myself, hence why I recently bought my MAC laptop.
While many of them went out to shoot their own material, one guy made a very moving film with just materials he had in his computer and could access on the net. His dedication and his final product moved me a great deal. It is called MLK. I hope you will check out this one as well as the others. This was a grassroots effort done by people who realize Israel could use some help in getting the word out there about how great she is.
Tomorrow I will debut my first attempt -- the emphasis on first, so be kind. Keep in mind, the kids at Jewish Impact Films are far more advanced and talented than myself. Is that enough disclaimers? Nah, they'll be more tomorrow.
