I am honored to have been interviewed by CanvasRebel Magazine!
Bad Habitz Organization, a Non-Profit that specializes in training Veterans to re-enter the workforce through the local film industry. We offer training in various departments of film production and help veterans to get hired on projects shooting in Louisiana, including our own films. Any film projects produced through Bad Habitz pledge to have 60% of cast and crew be filled by Veterans.
We are seeking both monetary and donations-in-kind to help not only get the program running but to keep it running throughout the year and for years to come. Our goal is to establish a tried-and-true way to teach the basics of the film industry to veterans and to eventually expand nationwide.
While working in the film industry myself, I saw a need to have more veterans in the industry and decided to train interested veterans in this non-traditional career path, whether it be in front of the camera or behind the camera as crew.
The goal is that veterans will be able to see the projects they worked on and be able to say, “I helped with that”.
The 501(c)3 non-profit organization was started, so that we can pay local, professional, film industry workers to train the veterans and then be able to hire them in the future.
Our Tax Exemption ID number is 86-2962549.
Bad Habitz Organization is a “tip of the hat” to veterans keeping with theme that we all leave the military with some type of “bad habit”.
