March to End Poverty

Here's a piece I did for Alameda County.

Community Action Partnership was established under the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964 to fight America's War on Poverty. Alameda County - Oakland Community Action Partnership (AC-OCAP) is part of broadnational and state networks of nearly 1,100 agencies, both non-profit private and public organizations, that extend across the United States—all working to eliminate poverty on a local and national level. CAP involves local citizens in its effort to address specific barriers to achieving self-sufficiency.

AC-OCAP is committed to reducing poverty by providing services and programs targeted to low-income individuals and families. AC-OCAP has been funding programs and projects in the low- income community since 1971.

Over the weekend I was contracted by alameda county to shoot a event at Lake Merrit.  Here are some photographs of mayor Jean Quan, congress woman Barbara Lee, and some of the crowd that was there. I'm also going to create a short highlight clip of the event so stay tuned for that. I brought along my friend David to help me out and gain more experience behind the camera. Later after that event I came home to dump the footage then went to dinner with Joycelyn, Brandon, and Devanae at a thai joint in downtown called Cambers. To conclude the day we went to watch godzilla. As a quick round up i'd give that movie a 6.5/10. The storyline was okay, I wanted to know more about godzilla though.
