GENRE: Documentary
STATUS: Production


One child is trafficked every 26 seconds, the majority ending up in the sex trade. This documentary exposes human trafficking through first-hand accounts of those who have been trafficked and those working to end this problem.


26 Seconds is a documentary that sheds a light on the horrific world of human trafficking. Through interviews with survivors and people working to stop the sex trade, this documentary shows the audience the worst parts of this global plague as well as hope for the future.


Choreography is where I found my passion for directing. I was inspired by lighting, music, and production. These interests are where I learned the importance of being a voice for the voiceless. Film is where I learned to create a story with a camera, so I could be this voice. Before I could direct a film I directed theater with the plays Bridge and Frank and Ava, which won the Best of Fringe in 2013. Becoming a Professor at Chapman University Dodge College of Media Arts gave me the opportunity to direct a film. The university gave me the tools I needed to make 26 Seconds a possibility. Through my past as a choreographer, actor, and director of theater, I am able to see both sides. I can direct and interact with people in a way that makes them give their raw emotions. As an artist, I can convey a message that will inspire people in the 26 Seconds documentary.
