August, 2019. Time is running out though the video Immigrant of the 21st Century in America. is a continued work in progress. However I need to have at least 20 minutes of footage for the October Balloon Project exhibition. Currently Contacts to immigrant support groups have resulted for a few immigrant candidates for video interviews I am looking to interview immigrants who came to America since year 2000 and who are willing to share stories of their immigration experiences. I have received several commitments- from people who had come to the United States from Mexico, Guatemala, Iran, and Africa. I must step on the gas peddle and move forward quickly.
A promotional video is made and a Balloon Project support team video also finished to give credits to the my artists support team.
