- Hi group,
I'll be very surprised if people here still remember me.
On Wednesday, students around the nation observed the National Day of
Silence in support of GLBT teens and safer schools. In Sacramento,
there was also a march organized by the Lambda Community Center. I
went along for this march and took pictures and video for a project I
had contemplated about three weeks earlier. Two days later, I gushed
out a DVD called "Project Soundwave" that included the following video:
I'm hoping this video inspires, provokes change, and influences a call
to action. If you'd like to see the main menu DVD screenshot, check
it out here:
Now, the DVD isn't being marketed like your favorite Disney movie.
I'm only making a few copies of the DVD (which, along with the main
video, includes a "making of" and several videos in their unedited,
raw state) and then the video is being erased from my computer. But
it'll be on YouTube, and I hope you'll pass it along to those who need
the inspiration :)
- Matthew, I remember your email address, because I enjoy the piano and
organ and your email address has the word keys in it. :-D
I am glad there is support of GLBT teens and safer schools. I am
hoping to encourage a school to officially become a safe and caring
school. The job will not be easy.
The video is impressive. Matthew, I cannot think of anything very
appropriate to say other than, "I am really proud of you and everybody
else involved in creating the video."
I would like to mention the video and provide a link to the web site
in the May Stop Hate Newsletter. Matthew, if you would like to write
a special newsletter for Stop Hate 2000, where you give some
background, you are very welcome to do that. We would be very
honored. The URL for Stop Hate 2000 is www.stophate.us.
Thank you for everything you are doing! :-D
