Using Media to Change the Face of Homelessness

Mission Media Productions uses the creative talents of men and women who at one time were hurting, homeless, and for many, living on the streets. These individuals simply needed a second chance to discover their God-given talent and to get their lives back on track. It's amazing to see that lives are dramatically being changed by God each day through our productions. Now, our crew of once-broken men and women are working in many aspects of media. Their success has been so profound that we believe it has the power to alter public perceptions about the homeless condition.

THE POWER OF MEDIA

The arts can speak with a power far beyond a dry spoken or written factual description, and Mission Media seeks to harness this power to convey a true picture of the homeless population, that all Homeless people are not Hopeless. Mission Media Productions was launched in 2015 at the New Orleans Mission. Over the past year, several projects have been produced and new projects are in development this year. The New Orleans Mission is committed to Changing the Face of Homelessness in America and Mission Media Productions is dedicated to producing quality projects.

The team started documenting events at the Mission and making videos of Disciples' testimonies after they graduated from the program. Devin supervised all photography shoots and created content for social media. His natural passion for photography and creativity led him to continued education in the film-making process, which has raised his skill level exponentially. Today his skill set is comparable to many professional photographers, editors, and videographers.
