LaJolla Friends of the Seals
La Jolla Friends of the Seals
is a non-profit, all-volunteer organization that was established in 1999 to offer protection to the La Jolla Harbor Seal Colony and education to the public through its Naturalist-Docent Program, “Friends of the Seals.” Casa Beach (or Children's Pool) is a rich, natural setting with harbor seals on the beach, gray whales and bottlenose dolphins offshore, brown pelicans on the rocks, cliff swallows darting about, ground squirrels on the bluffs, a wealth of invertebrate life in the tidepools and even an occasional sea lion or elephant seal making an appearance on the beach. For many years there has been controversy about the appropriate use of the Casa/Children's Pool Beach with conflict between those who wish to destroy the harbor seal colony and those who wish to preserve it.

Addiction Recovery Public Service Announcements
Addiction Recovery advocates from across the country participated in a National Public Awareness print and television broadcast campaign titled "Recovery Happens Every Day-We're Living Proof of It." The campaign uses voices of different ages and backgrounds to dispel the stereotype that addiction only affects the poor living in inner cities. The campaign was also developed to deliver a message that people can and do recover from addiction. The Recovery advocates were filmed at Faces and Voices of Recovery "Rising! Recovery in Action" Summit held in Washington, D.C. in September for Addiction Recovery Month. The national campaign produced with stark black and white imagery for NCADD-NJ includes 10 print ads, (2) 30 sec spots and (3) 15 sec spots.

The Gates
The Gates, a critically acclaimed two week installation of the art of Christo and Jeanne-Claude was made of 7,500 gates, and 1,067,330 square feet of saffron colored flag-like material that surrounded Central Park in NYC. The Gates swathed visitors with its warm embrace over 28 miles of meandering footpaths, creating a visual golden river. One visitor summed it up as "mesmerizing" and "zen-like". A wonderful once-in-a-lifetime experience, whether you liked the concept or not.

"The first thing to keep in mind, is that your objective is not to make a 'TV show' or a 'show' of any kind. You are collecting evidence; you are encouraging witness; you are emboldening ordinary people to 'go public.'"
