Reid Davenport has been making films and public speaking at high schools and universities for five years. Through My Lens is a fulcrum of filmmaking and public speaking, as its mission is to inspire students with disabilities to make their own videos and share their own perspectives.
Through My Lens offers instruction to students at the high school and college level on how to make their own amateur videos. These videos will then be curated online.
Reid’s central message to students will center around how filmmaking not only allows people to gain the perspective of the filmmaker, but also how the filmmaker can reflect and gain self-awareness and self-confidence by sharing his or her story.
