How my work helped to raise my awareness…

West Point

West Point Military Academy

When I'm editing a project with a deadline, I often tune out any distractions so that I can stay focused; not an easy task in a world full of: phone-calls, texts, emails, Facebook and Twitter...to name a few.  Well, thankfully I decided to pick up the phone on the day that Nisha Mathur from TV Asia called me.  She told me that she was producing a show called Shades of Shakti: "shades" for women and Shakti for "empowerment" and that she needed a production company to bring her weekly show to life.  She also filled me in on how the current production company was not meeting deadlines, nor her high standards...I knew that if we took on this show...it would have to surpass current expectations... The timing was right, the chemistry between Nisha and me was right, so we met in person and decided to surge forward in the hopes of creating a special show that could make a difference.

When I think back 7 months ago, I'm not even sure I knew there was a region called South Asia or what countries embodied it...well, that has changed and I believe I am a better and more tolerant person because of it.  Throughout the 13 episodes of the show, 10 of which Action Media produced, the guests have included: Physicians, Philanthropists, Students, Teenagers, Mothers, Children, Designers, Professors and even the first South Asia female cadet at The West Point Military Academy.  To call the knowledge, wisdom and perseverance of these people an inspiration...would truly be an understatement.   Please scroll down to read more...but stop along the way to view the pics.
