TRUTH IN CHAOS PRESENTS – FINDING KHALIAH’S TRUTH IN CHAOS

The Mission
Truth in Chaos is an American 501 non-profit organisation that empowers teens and families around the world. I was given the task of creating a short documentary film about Khalia, who is a survivor of Stevens-Johnson syndrome. Footage and audio was supplied by the Truth in Chaos team.

The Process
I was briefed slightly on the complexity of the project, what the files contained, the desired film duration and where the completed film would be shown – a private theatre screening and on their social media sites.

Since I did not have much to work with I decided the best thing to do would be download the master footage files supplied to me. Once downloaded, I spent three days researching ‘Stevens-Johnson Syndrome’, going through the footage, labelling the shots, creating a paper cut edit, and script based on the footage dialogue and music. I then began to edit, adding relevant placeholders for the graphics; I wanted to take the viewers on a journey so I frequently revisited my paper cut edit and script to ensure I was not missing the key pointers.

When the timeline was developed, I concentrated on making the relevant graphics. The opener, closer, lower-thirds and slates. I wanted to keep all the graphics visually consistent, from opener to lower-thirds, all the way through to the clients logo.

Once I was satisfied with my first edit, I sent a copy to the clients for feedback. I also advised that rather than the video being 15 to 20 minutes in length, I could cut it down to ten whilst including all of the relevant points and keeping it interesting.

After I received the clients’ feedback, I noticed the edit had given them a direction which really helped, and I was asked to make a couple of changes. When these were done, I sent the final video.

The Conclusion
A copy of the film was shown at a private screening in a theatre in Atlanta, uploaded to YouTube and the client’s personal website.
