Sarah Palin and Wasilla [Oct. 8th, 2008|06:59 pm]
(Passed along from Elizabeth K.)

Video embedded for your convenience.

Dear Friends,

A few weeks ago I shared and idea I had with my old friend and colleague Paul Lundahl. "Wasilla is only about 45 minutes north of Anchorage Paul," I said. "We could do a video production there over a weekend and capture a deeper understanding of Palin and educate voters about her record". We quickly put together a team of highly respected Bay Area producers, camera operators, editors and musicians and the Wasilla Project began.

The goal of the project is to produce a series of short video portraits of Sarah Palin and her hometown that could be a valuable addition to the national debate and the mainstream media news coverage. A secondary goal is to produce videos that can speak to issues that touch undecided voters on main street.

We determined before we arrived in Alaska that we were going to interview both republicans and democrats -- what mattered most to us was getting to people who knew her and had knowledge about her policies and beliefs first hand.

Our team has just completed out first video that focuses on victims of sexual assault that have to pay for the gathering of forensic evidence for their criminal case. Although this story has received national media attention we wanted to interview people involved in the issue to speaking directly on camera and make their interviews available online.
