VivaKids - Dominican Republic

Project: Food for Life

Client: VivaKids

Involvement: Camera operator and editor.

VivaKids is a non profit group that focuses on bettering the lives of underprivileged kids around the world. Their latest program is a food initiative, a food program to help malnutrition kids.

For this project, the goal was to shoot “real life situations” of these kids. For that reason, as well as customs and the areas we were working in, the crew and gear was kept to a minimum. Mark worked with the director of VivaKids, Rick Cotton and the VivaKids crew for three days in the low income neighborhoods and schools of the Dominican Republic.

The entire production was shoot on our Panasonic HVX200.

Above is the first chapter from the DVD. For more information on the Vivakids program or to see the rest of the video, visit
