This crazy project by James Ostrer, which cost him $8,000 just in the food resources alone has caused a large divide, he uses his family and friends as the models in this bizarre but totally sugary body of work.  Quite incredible, Totally bizarre.  The colourful backgrounds and crazy portraits make a very interesting body of work.

Research – Understanding how to make a good documentary

http://www.desktop-documentaries.com/making-documentaries.html

This page gives a step by step guide on what is most important when starting a documentary.  It is done like a check list and is very helpful.  It doesn’t direct on how to take the video, this is something I will have to look up on, as I have never done anything ‘Mixed Media’ before and it is not one of my talents or something I know anything about.

I am excited to learn the techniques needed in this body of work to create a good documentary to up the profile of those suffering with diabetes.  I think that it is needed.
