We were asked to bring a filmmakers perspective in combining thousands of photographs taken at Gilda's Club in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The concept was to showcase the many facets that is Gilda's Club, from kids playtime to grief counseling - from community dinners to crafts groups, Gilda's Club in an amazing organization representing West Michigan.
The music piece by Garrett Borns (garrettborns.org) was recorded live during the 2012 LaughFest event, while this video played on a projector screen behind his performance. We wanted to share that experience with the world.
Thanks to all the amazing people who contributed to this video project - as well as those in the community who provide support to Gilda's Club, LaughFest, and the continued fight against cancer.
