In January of 2010 Dusty Breeding, founder of Lifebread Inc., traveled to Uganda in search of a location to build a new set of ovens. I followed him in an attempt to document the trip.
On the third location visited, Dusty and I ran into a missionary named Jeff Cash, who challenged our view on the "role" American non-profits should play around the world.
Coming from a small liberal-arts college in California, Dusty and I are very accustom to organizations providing aid to developing countries. It is safe to say that I have seen and bought more "trendy cause t-shirts" than most people.
However, Jeff challenged us to really think about how we invest in these communities and where we choose to place our money and time.
What follows are the conversations that have lead me to change my "philosophy" on working with these communities of people and Dusty has been able to further refine his vision and purpose for Lifebread.
This summer, Dusty and a team of Pepperdine students will be returning to Uganda to build 3 new ovens with Jeff Cash and the community of people in Port Portal, Uganda.
Myself, along with Alec Eagon, will also be returning this summer and beginning production on a feature-length documentary revolving around this idea of how to best serve those in developing countries.
All the Africa footage was shot on a Sony Ex-1 with a Letus Extreme. The main interview of Dusty was shot on a Canon 7D. You can see why I sold the EX-1 and we are shooting the whole feature with 7D's.
