Human trafficking is a global stain on our human nature but what many people don't realize is that this underground industry is very much present in the United States and in our own state of Tennessee. For that reason, StoryGive has partnered with End Slavery TN to harness the power of story to bring a deeper awareness of human trafficking, the many types that this form of slavery embodies, and to move people to respond.
This year we told three 2 minute stories, all centered around the moment of betrayal. .. the common thread among all the types of trafficking.

Lewis' Story is a StoryGive project produced by the Nashville Filmmakers Guild for the non profit organization Project Return. Project Return is solely dedicated to the successful new beginnings of people who are returning to our community after incarceration. They provide the resources and services needed to gain employment and build full and free lives.
StoryGive is a movement made up of film and video creatives who desire to give of their artistry and skill to craft a story for voices rarely heard. Administered by the Nashville Filmmakers Guild, StoryGive takes place in a single weekend, two days, where teams of creatives set out to capture and produce a story for another non-profit in the Nashville community.

Waltz Upon A Time is a lovely cinematic composition following Viennese traditions, occasionally breaking the cliches yet constantly keeping the music interesting and unexpected. Likely suited for younger audiences or light programming, the piece is intended to bring listeners through a magical, and perhaps romantic journey across a fairy-tale like and imaginative landscape. Thank you for listening, I hope you enjoy.
