Pitch video


What happens when you give a photo, instead of just taking it? This documentary will explore this question, using the magic of instant film. I’ll take to the streets of my hometown, photographing the people I meet. We'll share the anticipation as the film develops in front of our eyes, and then I'll give them the image I create. The significance of this exchange is something I experienced firsthand when I brought instant film to Peru, and photographed the folks I met there. Now I want to bring viewers with me, so they too can see the magic of photography, and the powerful experiences you can have when you share instant film with others.

The team

We have an enthusiastic host, a super talented camera crew and an editor already assembled to make an incredible documentary! We're totally ready to roll!
