California Senior Leaders Program – a foray into documentary filmmaking

Lekker Media was asked to work with the UC Berkeley School of Public Health to help train doctoral students in community filmmaking in 2011. As a result of this connection, I worked with the program to produce a documentary on the California Senior Leaders Program to help recognize 10 years as an organization.

It was a fantastic experience on a number of levels: One – I got to make a somewhat longer-form documentary piece than the usual profile for the web; Two – I was privileged to meet these fantastic and inspirational people who had been activists all their lives & now, because they are seniors, turned their skills and talents to solving the problems of our aging population.

Really amazing people & a really amazing program that the UC Berkeley School of Public Health has created with these people.
