Here’s a quick video interview during the screening of REVEALED at the Massachusetts Independent Film Festival in Cambridge, MA. It includes filmmaker Christian de Rezendes and myself talking about the film REVEALED: Portraits from Beneath One’s Surface.
I had my first television appearance this past week! All Friends Cabaret host Krystyne Cheever recently interviewed me on QATV in Quincy, Massachusetts about the REVEALED project. It was an enjoyable experience and now it has been posted on YouTube for everyone to enjoy.
It is broken down into 2 videos:

Over the past 2 months REVEALED has been receiving lots of attention and love. The success of the Kickstarter project has allowed the REVEALED book to move forward and is currently being produced at the printers.
Here are some recent articles about the project:
South Coast Today, Massachusetts, published an article about the REVEALED Art Class project –
It was on page 1 of Section B in the printed version.
The newspaper photographer and writer did a fantastic job of covering the REVEALED Class photography session during my visit to Friend’s Academy to reveal a group of 4th grader students.
I was impressed at how much thought and creativity went into their boxes. This reminds me at how important this portion of REVEALED is, and why I continue to nurture it.
The East Greenwich, RI Patch wrote an article about the upcoming REVEALED book and the Kickstarter campaign. The reporter interviewed myself, the book’s designer, Philip Hawthorne, and a local REVEALED subject. A very nice perspective on this project.
A box, a picture, and a life revealed is what The Providence Phoenix wrote about in Providence, Rhode Island’s publication. She writes about the This I Believe REVEALED collaboration among other things. Amy Littlefield writes, “What is perhaps most striking about “This I Believe REVEALED” is how willing subjects have been to bare their souls — both before Rhode Island public radio listeners and before anyone who sees the photographs.”

I’m very excited, and a bit nervous, to bring my first Kickstarter project which will help fund the REVEALED book. As many of you know, publishing a REVEALED book has been a dream of mine … and many REVEALED subjects and supporters … we are almost there!! And we are almost there! I’m asking everyone, including you, to please visit the Kickstarter page and pledge if you would like too. Then share the campaign with your friends. This REVEALED book will allow this project to reach even more people and create more energy around it.
Take a minute to watch this short video and learn more about why I am creating this book. There are fabulous rewards offered at every level of campaign pledges. Including, never offered before. Including the book (of course), limited edition prints, the documentary film and even me flying out to your city to photograph you and your friends as REVEALED subjects.
Yes!! Our short film, REVEALED: Portraits from Beneath One’s Surface, has been selected to be part of the Utopia Film Festival 2011!!!! In Greenbelt, MD – just outside Washington DC. The schedule has not been set, though it will be the the weekend of October 28th. See you there!!
