There’s a new vlog around, called INVISIBLE PEOPLE. It is made by Mark:
“Who am I? My name is Mark and I live in Los Angeles which I affectionately call LaLa Land… I literally am 7 weeks from being homeless myself, but I had to do something – so I started a vlog that will hopefully keep the homeless conversation going by telling their story. Technically it could be better. I don’t have anything but this little laptop that is not made to cut video and a small camera. It’s a miracle that the laptop is even allowing me to compress the data. I just took action with what I have.”
Mark became some sort of (reborn) Christian, after a living a life as homeless person for many years. He dicided to record and publish raw and unedited interviews with people living on the streets. Listen to the story of another Mark, who was working until recently for an oil and gas company in Beverly Hills and who got fired because he criticized his company for lying about their profits and returns:
“At first Mark didn’t want to talk on camera. We chatted for a bit and as I started to walk away he asked for a business card. He wanted to know what the video would be used for, how it would be used, and what organizations I was connected to. I assured him this project was completely independent and my only agenda was to tell the homeless story with real people telling real stories unedited and uncensored. Mark is extremely intelligent and articulate. His story really wrecked me because I could identify with so much of it. This is a great story. I hope Mark’s story and the other stories on this vlog inspires you to continue the homeless conversation.”
