Any way I was looking at her work because her style and subject matter is very relevant to the work I am currently producing, I have always known about her photography and it was only until recently that I came across her videography which can all be found on her Vimeo page - https://vimeo.com/lisaleone . I love how she is using these mediums to tell the stories of young individuals, this video specifically (above). When watching these videos I am thinking of the documentary to create back in my home town at some point, so I'm thinking, camera position, lighting, audio clarity, music, transitions, voice over points, B roll, Titles. as much as I can take from it i'm evaluating.
Firstly she is close to the subjects,
