WASHINGTON, DC, 14 January 2018 — I’m delighted to update friends, colleagues and supporters that FREELANCERS with Bill Gentile soon will be moving to the distribution phase.

We’ve scheduled a screening this week at American University, a generous supporter of this project. The event will be held at the class of Matt Cipollone, whose editing of the documentary serves as his graduate degree thesis project. Matt graduates with a Masters Degree this May.

Following the screening, my plan is to deliver the film to the artist who will provide the sound/music foundation of the documentary, and who will mix the sound and music into the final cut. Then we take it to potential distributors. It’s been a long journey, filled with intense, hard work, much learning and a tremendous amount of fun with friends, new and old.

If you haven’t done so already, you may want to watch the FREELANCERS “sizzle reel,” which Matt also edited. Here it is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zr5ZwWrUD5E&t=8s

WASHINGTON, DC, 25 January 2016 — Dominic Bracco II, a freelance photojournalist and writer based in Mexico City, addresses a crowd at the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting in the nation’s capital.

From his web site: “Dominic Bracco II explores the effects of global economics on local communities. Although he works internationally, Dominic’s work often returns to document the effects of Mexican and North American policies on the Texas / Mexico border region where he was raised. He has degrees in journalism and Spanish literature from The University of Texas at Arlington. Past clients include Harper’s Magazine, The New York Times Magazine, The Washington Post, and Smithsonian Magazine. Dominic is also a founding member of the collective Prime. He is based in Mexico City.”

Dominic is one of many young, multi-talented freelance journalists filling the void left by mainstream media organizations pulling back from coverage overseas.

A couple of students from my Foreign Correspondence class and I attended Dominic’s presentation. Well worth the effort.
