Enlightenment Project – trip to Ghana, Africa With Yvonne Pointer
The Enlightened Project is a documentary about the uniting of two determined people from two different parts of the world with a common goal of making a safe learning environment for all children. Yvonne Pointer has been an outspoken and decorated activist and philanthropist. Motivated by the tragic murder of her daughter (Gloria Pointer), she has worked passionately to create a safe and nurturing environment for Cleveland’s teens and other families around the world. Singled out and featured by Oprah Winfrey in 1996, Yvonne has engaged with community leaders and eager volunteers to create positive change.
The effort to create the school in Atonkwa, Ghana is the direct result of a young African man’s (Anthony Tay) serendipitous connection. A newspaper article about Yvonne’s honors and accolades made its way to Ghana and landed at the feet of Anthony Tay, a young man searching for purpose and a way to keep his village alive and children educated in rough times in Ghana. Inspired by the positive outreach and support from Yvonne, Anthony persisted over the years to make positive changes in his community. The Gloria Pointer Teen Movement has lead the way.
Now, things have fruitfully grown and a new school, “Gloria Pointer Teen Movement School” is nearing completion. Ms. Pointer has been invited to attend the dedication ceremony. She has reached out to us, The Next Level Brothers, in order to ensure we capture these historic events on film and tell the story of the hopes that inspired many to keep moving forward. The Next Level Brothers are trained film professionals attending the prestigious Art Center College of Design.
We will deliver a high-impact, motivational, and professional documentary that will be worthy of Film Festival awards. We seek $25,000 to cover our basic travel expenses. The costs will also will help hiring a professional camera operator who can assist with the shooting, lighting and environment. Filming will be conducted August 7-16, 2015 in Ghana.
