Bring A Personal Story To Light With Your Smartphone with Alexandra Guillossou Episode 53

Understanding each other is part of our communication skills as we share our stories with others around us. Sometimes, a story needs to go further than the people around us. We can write or share it on social media and reach a lot of people around the world. Alexandra Guillossou went a step further. She brought her skills to create a film about a personal story very dear to her family.

While on vacation, she just happened to have her smartphone with her, just like many of us do. She began to record her brother, who suffers from Multiple Sclerosis. Episode 53 of the SBP Podcast Mobile Filmmaking shares the story behind how she was able to turn the footage into a delicate story using her smartphone.

There are many steps to creating a film but usually, films are planned. Most filmmakers don’t carry a camera around wherever they happen to go. It can be bulky and maybe very inconvenient. Sitting out by a lake as your family is barbecuing…that just may not be a scenario you bring a professional camera to. But Alexandra had her phone with her and decided to record and document the scene without much planning.

It wasn’t until she had captured the footage that she began to construct the story. The story has an impact for those who watch the entire film. It is a reality many of us do not understand what it’s like to have or live with the effects of someone close suffering with this disease.

The power of stories can change lives. There are people who don’t understand what is happening during the course of an event but can watch a film like The Deepest Cut and realize the whole story in a way they couldn’t before. During our podcast conversation, Alexandra says, “It’s one thing to tell a story. It’s another thing to watch the story you just told.”

The purpose of sharing her story is to bring awareness to debilitating diseases that many people do not understand. Sometimes, we need to understand these things happen to normal people and perhaps it can bring some light to the challenges. Alexandra points out how some people do not have a strong support system and their voices can get lost.

We hope sharing her film, The Deepest Cut can help connect us as a society and as human beings. It would make the world a better place for each other if we could all respect and understand the challenges we all face each and every day. After all, we are all a story unfolding through the course of our life.
