I’m not going to have much to show in class tomorrow. One interview and some b-roll footage is about all I can show. I will have something to post on Wednesday, but what I submit in December will be much better. I have been making connections in the NY human trafficking circuit. At least with reporters covering the subject, city officials involved, and advocacy groups. I now have tentacles spread out far and I am hoping to get real shit on camera. (Excuse the word, I could think of a suitable replacement with the same meaning.) Alot of the women that are trafficked into this country end up as prostitutes. Their johns never know that they are in any way different from any other prostitute. Often times they work in brothels, and the brothel manager never know that they are slaves. Their traffickers just seem like pimps to them. The only difference is that traffickers are pimps that take all of their money.
I told ABC today that I can no longer work 5 days a week. They were fine with this of course. They asked me to do so when I started and I wanted to make a good impression. But I need, and want, time to devote to this project. I think I am really growing into this. I have an another interview in the morning and must look over my material now.
