Completed in less then 10 hours from start to final mix, “Lens On A Life” tells the story about a group of photographers with the “Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep” organization who take baby pictures, but not your normal baby pictures. As someone who was born premature, putting this story together makes me wonder what my parents would have done had I not survived birth. It’s touching and sad all at the same time.
It’s always nice to be requested for a story. I got an email from Marilyn Deutsch letting me know that she’d requested me to edit this “very sensitive story.” The email subject alluded to the poem, “Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep” and I was intrigued from the get go. When I started working on it, I wasn’t really sure what direction it was going to go, but lucky for me, there was plenty of video and images to work with. And of course, once again, I asked Alex Bornstein to score it.
Enjoy…but you might need tissues.
