Prairie Nation Creative is a proud sponsor of the AAF, which are a team of historical preservationists that are dedicated to preserving the rich past of OK. Through photography, research, and documentation, we are able to capture the memories and untold stories of these disappearing locations. We want to create a historical database of historic information so that when these buildings are demolished, burned down, reclaimed by mother nature, or restored, they are never forgotten. We are passionate about preservation and through donations, volunteers, and determination we aim to bring life back into these historic structures.
I was very honored to work with The Abandoned Atlas foundation and the Oklahoma Historical Society to produce an educational documentary about the original Page Woodson/Douglass High School building in OKC. I am proud to say now that this video is now used for The Auditorium at Douglass’ pre-show line-up.
The Young Americans
Music brings people together for many purposes: teamwork, respect, accomplishment, caring, self-discipline, a sense of self-worth, and MUCH more. As a documentarian, I had the opportunity to follow a cast of 40 on their trips through the United States, Canada, Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore, South Africa, and Alaska. My job was to discover inspiring stories to document as students from all over the world took workshops to build confidence in themselves.
Below is the video I produced from my South Africa Trip in 2017.
Armenian Educational Foundation
In 2018, I was living in California and had a great opportunity to produce a video for the Armenian Education Foundation while employed at a documentary production house in Glendale. I traveled to Armenia for 2 weeks and witnessed less fortunate kids from all over the country receiving scholarships, schools supplies and new facilities.
