A Tragedy, a Mission and a Method.

Melissa's Journal under lights in our shooting space. It's not everyday that we turn down work here at Productive Media, but in August of this year we were offered the chance to polish a documentairy about the life of Melissa Avrin, a 19 year old woman who died from bulimia. The producers of the documentary hoped to have the film ready for a festival deadline in September, and while we could create a more polished cut of the film in 6 weeks, we weren't sure that we could do it while maintaining our standards of quality.

Well a couple of months later, we are happy to report that Judy--Melissa's Mom--was up here to let us photograph Melissa's Journal in which she recorded her desire to make a movie that would change lives. We're going to help make that happen.
