ICYMI: See Stories Sony Create Action Film

See Stories could not be more grateful for the support of a Sony Create Action grant. The proposal was written by the amazing Lauren Scantlebury (@lshscantlebury) in 2022 when she served as our Story Coordinator, and the award provided See Stories with $50,000 funding, $50,000 worth of Sony gear for our youth workshops, and a professionally produced film by Jake Vira Montez (@jakeviramontez) about our work in Angoon. This support came at the perfect moment, as we transitioned to a teeny-tiny start-up nonprofit to a growing, stable nonprofit with several staff-members. Sony believed in See Stories and our vision and trusted us to utilize the funds to maximize impact, which in the nonprofit world is the biggest gift of all. As a result we were able to grow our staff, grow our programs, and share the story of what we do with the world. Thank you, Sony Alpha! Watch the film here or you can watch the film on the Sony Alpha Universe youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-YOIHx9kXAk.
