I imagine this post would get more shares than responses, and that’s alright! I’m working on a coming of age short film that chronicles many of the defining moments in the lives of men, from birth to fatherhood. At this point, I have a specific need to film African American boys under about 6 years of age, but I especially have a need to film baby boys of color. I basically need to capture footage of them being babies. Sleeping, crying, feeding, being held, being changed, etc. If you or someone you know might be open to having their little guy featured in a film like this, please reach out to me or share this with them! I’ll provide all the info needed about the project at that point. Thanks in advance!
