Sit for Good Clark :: Documentary

Here’s where domestic duty coincides with career. My daughter Luka’s third grade class was competing for a trip to Harry Potter World (some TODAY show contest) and had to make a video about doing something good.

They chose to focus on a Sit For Good fundrasier they undertook, which collected nearly $1,000 to help build a school in Uganda. I let the kids figure out the story line. Their teacher Katherine Witthauer led them through script writing.

We shot the piece in one class period – and it was very cute. But it didn’t take the prize. And the kids stayed home from Harry Potter.

I pulled together this piece on the making of, and almost felt that it told the story better. I love the score, which the music teacher thought up when we arrived. And we recorded it there in her classroom.

Luka is finally getting to Harry Potter World this summer, on her grandma’s dime.
