Chandler will also show Barefoot Workshops' alumni work as examples of how documentaries can be created in under two weeks using inexpensive and budget-realistic equipment packages. This will be a great opportunity to ask questions about equipment and how to work in unusual locations around the world.

Barefoot Workshops Bio:

Together, we build the capacity of organizations around the world to meet program goals in areas such as: health (HIV/AIDS), conflict resolution, youth empowerment, civil rights and democracy-building. To date, Barefoot has run workshops in nineteen countries teaching individuals, organizations, youth, adults, cancer survivors, HIV/AIDS advocates, everywhere from Burundi to The West Bank to Canada to Honduras. Partners have included: the U.S. Department of State, Desmond Tutu HIV Foundation, the Middle East Partnership Initiative (MEPI), Filmaid International (Kakuma Refugee Camp, Kenya), UNESCO (Burundi), and Katrina-affected communities in the southern United States.

Chandler Griffin Bio:

His projects have taken him to Latin America, North America, the UK, Ireland, Africa, India, Southeast Asia and the Middle East. He has produced and taught educational programs in northern Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, Kenya, South Africa, Honduras, Jordan, Kuwait, Israel, Palestine, Bahrain, India, Vietnam, Indonesia, Malaysia, Costa Rica, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Canada and various locations in the continental USA.
