The Documentary Short

The In Your Own Skin documentary short is about nothing short of unlocking human potential and joy.

The further I go into this project, the more I trust our deep intelligence. I experience people being genuinely authentic – I’ve seen the potential for human beings to share in such a powerful openhearted way. We are living differently now in these challenging times. We are living more and more in community and in ways that we really support each other.

Projects like this one and the others I have created ( like my Breaking the Silence Project) show that love always trumps fear.

I am passionate about this project! I love every minute of this mad and wonderful process: creating these ways to reveal and share our hidden stories with each other. I love how this process can weave into the every day aspects of my life, parenting, community and travels. I recently was reminded of the obvious… that the meaning of life is to find your gift and the purpose of life is to give that gift. Each of the In Your Own Skin portraits gives a gift and reveals a part of each of us. Now that is worth getting up for in the morning! I am so very grateful.

This project is about YOU

This project cannot happen without YOU!

The small, highly motivated team working alongside me on In Your Own Skin, derive huge emotional satisfaction from being part of such a worthwhile project, and have already invested significantly in the project.

However funds are still required to cover all the unavoidable fees such as travel costs, equipment hire and running things like websites.

That’s why I’m using the power of “crowd funding”  to help make to help make this moving project a happiness bringing reality.

For just a small amount you can share in the excitement of bringing the In Your Own Skin documentary short from dream to Screen and DVD.
