A lot has changed for ON Point Productions from the first pitch to the final stages of pre-production.
Our vision and direction was altered when we met Dr. Cathrene Connery, a education professor at Ithaca College who specializes in bilingual education and advocacy. She has incredible connections to Karen-Burmese families living in Ithaca, plus several ELL teachers around the city.
Since then, we’ve met with the international club at Ithaca High School to introduce ourselves, pass video release forms to the students and talk to prospective students that we hope to follow for the documentary.
Our next stages? We’re interviewing several of the Karen-Burmese families in two weeks and are finalizing more subjects at Ithaca High School.
Full steam ahead!
