It Takes Us.

It Takes Us. is a long-term documentary project about the impact of gun violence on survivors, family members of victims, and witnesses to these horrific acts.

The goal is to tell a diverse story - both in terms of demographics (young, old, rich, poor, all races and ethnicities) and type of incident (suicide, domestic violence, mass shootings, etc.) - and show how none of us are ever more than one or degrees of separation away from this epidemic.

By shining a light on these people, and allowing viewers to relate to them on a personal level and maybe even see their own families story in the stories of others, I hope to create a dialogue that will lead to meaningful change.
