      Hi-
      I work with a program teaching refugees how to shoot and edit video. You can check out our program @ http://www.buffaloyouthinmotion.org/

      There have been lots of problems and joys along the way. I'd be happy to answer any questions about the program or how we do things. My email is Kerry.Brogan@...
