- Thank you so much for your help! I am working on getting my master's in Educational Technology. Currently, I am a high school English teacher. I use Instagram on the side to document my family farm and the growth we are anticipating to make it a working farm.
In my Master's class, we are tasked with creating a documentary. I could not think of the subject until driving home from a hard day at work listening to Waylon Jennings, Momma's Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys. Long title aside, they don't write songs like that anymore. I was thinking after teaching seniors of how much we push them to be "doctors and lawyers and such" instead of cowboys (or any agriculture-related field). I want to make this my documentary.
It's nothing fancy so I don't expect anything amazing. I'm just asking for help. Can you film yourself answering one (or all three) question(s)? All I need is you to film sideways, face the camera (anything can be in the background), and a clear, honest answer. Feel free to add or expand on anything. It might not make it into this film but I might use it later!
- What do you like about living on a farm or ranch?
- What do you hope for your kid to learn from this lifestyle?
- Why would you NOT want your child to go into one of the more "mainstream" well-paying careers?
