In the Big Easy for Finding Jenn’s Voice – While most of us think of Bourbon Street and its all night party, we met a very different group of people during our trip to New Orleans. Loyola University’s professors, Dr. Rae Taylor and Dr. Marcus Kundkar offered incredible insights into the tragedy of Intimate Partner Homicide. And our interview with Roxanne, a survivor of intimate partner violence, left us humbled.
Justine was devastated by her sister’s murder, and was very reluctant to participate in Finding Jenn’s Voice. After two years, she finally agreed to go on camera while riding Jenn’s horse Marji. Justine’s insights were profound, and the images we got while she rode were very moving. In fact, we found our poster image with Justine riding into the light on Jenn’s horse.

Lots of great moments in Colorado Springs shooting for Penske Logistics. Camera truck and crew captured amazing road footage…but the location trumped all, especially our drive through the aptly named Garden of the Gods. And of course Pikes Peak!
