Spotlight on “Out and About: My Mother’s Story” by director/ writer Nicholas James Dodd
I worked with Nick earlier this year in a campaign for my previous call center company. We talked a lot about our dreams, our lives and what mattered the most to us. I have to say from those few weeks of getting to know Nick, I learned that he is a very driven and thoughtful guy who really loves his family. Nick talked a lot about his wife and child, but he also talked a lot about how much he admired his mom. See, his mom is a lesbian and had to go through a lot before accepting who she was and was able to come out and finally be okay with who she is. Recently, Nick’s mom was diagnosed with breast cancer. Since then, he has decided to embark on a journey to create a documentary highlighting her life and her struggles. I asked Nick what really inspired this idea and he very simply put “…I would say that telling the story of my family’s endeavors(with my mom being the focus of course), I have wanted to share the story through this means for a couple of years now. It is with her recent diagnosis that made me want to do it even more, and with seeing how sick she has become VERY recently, it made me want to do whatever was necesary to make it happen.”
Here is the video Nick posted on indiegogo.
