The newest Global Lives Project Lives in Transit video series is nearly complete!
We’re eager to share a sneak preview from our latest shoot as well as highlights of our work over the past year.
Lives in Transit intimately captures the daily routines and rituals of people whose lives center around transport, a critical issue in a world increasingly defined by mobility. This email contains photos from our film shoot with Seunghwan Seo, our on-screen participant in Seoul, South Korea. Every day is different for the 30 year old. As an employee with a company called Anyman, Seunghwan provides virtually any service for people in Seoul. For food delivery, their most popular service, Seunghwan weaves his motorbike between cars and down narrow alleyways to ensure it arrives hot and ready for enjoyment. He caters to requests, ranging from pest control to airport pick-ups to attending a wedding.
Learn more about Seunghwan and the Lives in Transit film shoot experience in a blog post by producer Sam Queen at globallives.org/blog/globalgangnam.
Looking back at 2013, we’re proud to share several highlights:
- Including our video with Seunghwan in South Korea, we’ve done eight shoots for Lives in Transit and scheduled the final two shoots in India and Algeria.
- Another series titled Endangered Languages will explore the value of cultural and linguistic diversity.
- Thanks to the National Endowment for the Arts and the design firm Method, Inc., we launched an award-winning website featuring over 400 hours of high-definition video for public viewing.
- To train some of our 1,000 volunteer filmmakers, we partnered with Adobe and created a production guide that covers everything from film budgets to camera batteries.
- Finally, in partnership with the Stanford Graduate School of Education, we released a global empathy curriculum. Download the kit for free and learn more about our effort to reach 100,000 students around the world!
We did this work with the assistance of our dedicated crews and the humbling support of donors like you.
