Hello & thank you for helping me. Below is an brief description of what we are capturing:
I am filming in New York City: "aging in the western world" on 11/11/11. We are focusing on 2 subjects that are 90 yr old woman. I am looking to represent stories about aging and what it's like to grow old in other regions.
TOPICS OF DISCUSSION: + Focus on the later years of life. How they elderly person see themselves fitting into our "modern" world.
+ How are they supported? (eg. family support, hospice care)
+ What type of challenges have they experienced in growing old in their community?
+ Tell us about how they feel about where they are living
+ What are their thoughts on dying?
+ How do they deal with missing friends and family who have passed.
+ Do they feel they have lived a full life?
+ Tell us a powerful story - a piece of personal history
+ Tell us a memory that taught you a great lesson
WHAT WE WANT TO PORTRAY: + Contemporary societies have become youth centric and have forgotten about the old
+ We should remember there is still life there despite the old age.
+ There is value to this human history as it's a part of the heritage of humankind - For the old are keepers of knowledge we can use in the present and future.
SHOT LIST: + Capturing the beauty of life in the age lines of the face.
+ Capturing the subject in his/ her enviroment
+ Capturing his/ her surrounds, room, neighborhood.
Erasmus, these are the notes for my shoot in New York. Any help you can offer in capturing an story from an Elder would be much appreciated... even if you just have time for a couple shots.
