"Faces Overlooked" was Featured on the YouTube Homepage on Thanksgiving for YouTube's Video Volunteers November Spotlight: Hunger in America.
"This was a film that I came across through YouTube and it is a video response to another film entitled Faces of Hunger. This young film producer put together this film, Faces Overlooked for a young filmmaker’s contest. The goal of this project was for participants to visually portray hunger in America through different “faces”. I think this short film was cleverly put together and did state a lot of issues. I feel that the concept was to show that hunger has no real face and hunger doesn’t have a certain “look”. Anyone could be a victim or face of hunger and it may be the most unlikely person on the street or even someone you know. We can all easily overlook someone who is suffering from hunger or is in need of food assistance. I fairly enjoyed the music and cinematography of this short film."
