Homelessness: Health and Mental Health Impact
Create an expository style documentary that looks into homelessness' health but also mental health impact. This ranging from being homeless to recovering past homelessness and the long lasting effect it can have on a person. For this documentary I want this to be at least 3-5 minutes and I want this to be as informative as possible for the audience, mainly set on now rather than historical events if I can talk to ex-homeless people.
Within the post-production phases of the project I will be using Final Cut Pro but will need to do research if this documentary can be posted on other social media accounts or on my own YouTube channel.
Within the production phases I will try and get interviews with those who are homeless or previously homeless that can answer what the documentary is centred around. Furthermore, I will try to get imputs from charaties that have seen what homelessness can do to a person but possibly seek ways in which the public can help.
