Caregivers: Rasheida’s Story

CAREGIVERS is an upcoming film that discusses traumatic experiences told by professional care providers who rescue, assist, or when possible heal the their patients and clients. It is “behind the scenes” look, contrasting the popular media’s portrayal of violent crimes, deaths or other tragedies, and will take us on a into their world the public has not seen before.

In this segment, Rasheida, a social worker and teacher, tells a compelling true story about a 10 year old child from her classroom whom she sent on an errand to fetch pastries for the class. Tragically he is caught in a random shootout and killed. It is a powerful story of professionalism, personal grief and emotional recovery.

In this experimental piece, I am responsible for creating the graphics and animated segments that help visualize her story.
