Dan Hendrick, the producer of the upcoming documentary film “Jamaica Bay Lives.” is seeking homemade videos and still photographs of Hurricane Sandy’s wrath in the communities around Jamaica Bay.
“We’re really calling on the community to help us out,” Hendrick said. “From the beginning we’ve been a community-driven project. We’re trying to keep it grassroots and locally driven.”
He is looking for videos or still photos, specifically of the disaster as it unfolded.
After the hurricane, residents from the Rockaways, Broad Channel and Howard Beach uploaded videos that were taken during the storm to YouTube, but many have just appeared in the last few months. Hendrick believes many people still have videos and photos that were not made public.
The first trailer for the film premiered in Rockaway in May.
Those interested in submitting footage or photos for the documentary can contact Hendrick at (917) 207-8715 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
