This is a recruitment campaign to have adults consider working with “at risk youth”.
We spent the day at a juvenile detention facility, everyone you see on camera is a cast actor. I have shot in prisons before so I wasn’t surprised when my purse and phone were put in a locker, the crew? Oh my. Every minute they had available Hair/Make Up and Wardrobe were running to their lockers checking their phones. I felt it liberating (I know bad choice of words).
This is a great PSA, a great program. If you are interested in being a kick ass mentor to at risk kids, check it out!
The Video/TV portion was fun, especially when I did the voice over casting. Finding the right voice really makes a difference!
This is newest “Sure” campaign from The New York City Department of Health.
“Living Sure” is geared toward all women; Cis, Trans, Pregnant, Nursing, Young & Mature. Once again, it was a fun casting (until Drew started playing Christmas music, LOL!).
Protecting yourself from unwanted pregnancy & STDs is important, but also the campaign seeks to educate women about PrEP. PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis) is a daily pill that can greatly reduce HIV infection risks for anyone, including women.
I feel very strongly about this issue, our Ob-Gyn doctors don’t tell us about PrEP. December 1st was World AIDS Day 2017, a report was released that HIV infection amongst gay men was on the decline while infection rate in women was rising. I hope this campaign will start the conversation between sexually active women and their doctors.

Here are some of the commercials created for the “We Understand” campaign to let people know about the City’s domestic violence helpline. I was so fortunate to find such amazing people to participate in this campaign.
It’s hard to quit, but it is doable! Hell, I quit cold turkey years ago! I knew it was bad for my health AND cigarettes are EXPENSIVE! You can quit, NYC & NY State have tools available to help! Director & Photographer: Larry Baglio Wardrobe: Mindy Saad Hair & Make Up: Tanya DeJesus & Eva Moshouris
