Day 3 of the 40 Day Autism Shoot

Today we were able to record our first family for the film – the Figueroa’s. Barbara, Cesar, Eric, Fabiola, and Alexis were great to work with on capturing their story. After all, it was an incredible story, and we got some great footage of the family at their house and around the neighborhood. The park location was rained out, but we spent some more time with the family to make up for it. The interviews were full of all the things you would expect from a family that moved thousands of miles to help their son: therapists, stories, laughter, and tears.

Because the Figueroa family didn’t speak great English yet, Sugey was able to provide translation services for Spanish. It went so well, we hardly noticed the language barrier at all!

Check out some of the photos from the shoot below and be sure to check back in tomorrow!
