My husband and co-Producer Evon Peter and I had the honor of attending the recent Vision Maker Media Producer Workshop and National Alliance for Media Arts and Culture (NAMAC) conference in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Our film We Breathe Again was selected for Vision Maker Media funding support recently and we were then invited to attend this Producers Workshop and conference. The entire trip was greatly informative, both inside and outside the workshops.
