Young inspiring filmmaker, Andy Blum, shot ColorBlind, a 30-minute documentary for his high school, which examines Dr. Martin Luther King’s legacy, through interviews with teenagers of all races, leading historians and elected officials.  The film, which was shot with the ProHD HD100 ended up winning Best Documentary and Audience Choice awards at the 2006 Strictly Students Film Festival, was a finalist at the Long Island Film Festival and the Boston International Film Festival.


“I use JVC’s ProHD HD100 to shoot various documentaries and narratives and recently used the camera to shoot a PSA called Hearts and Hands, which won first place at the New York State DECA Competition,” said Andy Blum.  “I love the camera because it produces a crisp picture and it’s lightweight and easy to use.”


At 17, Andy is in his senior year in High School.  “I plan to enroll in Film School after graduation.  And, to prepare me for film school, I’m currently interning at an independent film company and continue to use the camera for my freelance audio and video production company, Total Works Media,” said Blum.
