#standwithme The Documentary
Director: PATRICK MOREAU
I wake up every day with an earnest desire to do more. Truth be told, it’s been years since I’ve slept through the night. There’s just too much excitement and the line between work and pleasure disappeared long ago.
I believe that educating is an art that deserves as much care and attention as the cinematography of your film does. Here is my commitment to you – I will always push to be a better storyteller, whether that’s in films I am a part of making, or in spending a day sharing our ideas with you.
You might read that I’ve won several Emmy’s or that I’m a Canon Explorer of Light. Don’t believe them. None of that matters. What matters is how much you connect with who we are and why we do it.
Director: GRANT PEELLE
It used to be that filmmaking was full of roadblocks. Access to gear, post, and getting your film out there was well out of reach for most of us. Today though, times have never been better for aspiring filmmakers. Everything is at our fingertips and more accessible than ever - that’s the powerfully good news.
On the flip-side, when the barriers to entry are removed, so too are the excuses for not delivering. No longer can you take comfort in sighting excuses for why your passion-filled piece remains unmade.
Grant Peelle is the Creative Director of Stillmotion Studios, a Portland, Oregon based hive of passionate storytellers in video format. We discuss their new film called “STAND WITH ME,” a documentary about a 9-year-old girl who started a lemonade stand with the goal of freeing 500 children from the grips of slavery. The film grew into a poignant exploration of child slavery and what determined people can do to be part of the solution.
Our bonus guest is Swiyyah, a motivational speaker who, despite a childhood of sexual and physical abuse, always saw herself as normal, although doctors diagnosed her with severe mental illness. She was hospitalized six times within three years, yet she earned a BA degree in Psychology from the University of South FL. Her new book, Don't Call Me Crazy! is now a required reading at St. Petersburg College’s writing and reading classes, and suggested reading in Abnormal and General Psychology classes.

The passage of the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act (PRWORA) in 1996 changed the way the federal government finances cash welfare to low-income families. Instead of a matching grant, states receive a set amount of federal funds in the form of a block grant with no adjustments for inflation, caseload numbers, or state spending. Social assistance programs, however, tend to experience increased demand in recessions – more people require assistance from the government during difficult economic times. To meet increased demand, states have to increase spending, but recessions usually bring lower revenues to states, requiring some cuts to discretionary spending. Analysts were concerned that PRWORA’s change to a block grant would jeopardize social spending during times of state fiscal stress and cause states to disproportionately cut welfare spending during recession.
