Bremerton filmmaker working to change children’s lives in the Dominican Republic
A Bremerton professor and filmmaker traveled to the Dominican Republic recently to help serve impoverished children.
It was the first time Phil Wilson, professor of Digital Filmmaking at Olympic College, and owner of Cream Soda Films, had traveled to the Dominican Republic for the first time.
Wilson is featured in the latest episode of the podcast Beyond the Village, according to a press release from the organization Children of the Nations (COTN). Wilson describes his experiences from his perspective as a tourist, filmmaker, father and artist, according to the release.
“I feel like I saw stuff everyone is supposed to see,” Wilson said. His experience impacted him deeply, and he believes it’s some of the most meaningful work he’s ever done, the release states.
“You can totally hide behind a camera and just think of people as objects,” Wilson said. “Uncovering the humanity, you can’t not be impacted by that.
“This is bigger than me and it’s bigger than the budget, and even bigger than COTN.”
