Nerves about being recorded
This is where our women do an amazing job of putting you at ease. They are skilled conversationalists, they are intelligent, empathetic, and wonderful listeners.
This low tech Zoom solution also helps. Everyone is used to video chatting now. It is done in the comfort of your own home.
We have lowered our prices significantly so that we could do so much more of this work. At a minimum, your money is going to empower and open doors for an AMAZING young person who has grown up in systems that perpetuate marginalization.
On top of that, we REALLY believe in our product. This recording will be incredibly entertaining for someone to watch now, and it will also have even more value in the future.
Low Quality Recording
We actually think the soft light that Zoom gives off is beautiful, especially with our elders. Also, Done is so much better than perfect here. Plus, we feel we capture the honest essence of our clients as they are comfortable, in their home, with their computer, no extra lights, or big equipment
I'm not interesting
So not true. To the people who love you, the people who know you. This will be a true gift for them to watch. For your future self, this will be a true gift to watch. Plus, we are told time and time again, that the experience itself is actually very fun. We barely pause to reflect on our past or our future.
I can do it myself
We love that! Do it! Let us know if you want us to be an accountability partner here. But you probably will never get to it. It is an awkward ask, it is never a priority. Plus we have noticed that conversing with a stranger yields much better stories and emotions. Also, you get to watch it for the first time! Empower us to do this work for you.
Love the idea, but I will wait
Tomorrow is not promised. You will never regret recording your loved ones, but you will regret not doing it. Plus, our women need to be empowered ASAP. Let's change the world
IS THE RECORDING EDITED?
Yes, but only slightly. We watch all the interviews for feedback purposes and quality control and will edit out any long pauses, anything that is repeated because of technology or not being able to hear. If you want us to edit anything else out, just let us know. If you want us to add photos/videos and music, we can do that too. Just contact us , letting us know what you are looking for and we can give you a quote.
CAN YOU ADD PHOTOS/VIDEOS AND MUSIC
Yes, for an additional fee we would be happy to edit your recording and add photos, videos and music (*only music we have legal rights to)
IS THE MAMABIRD PROJECT A NON PROFIT
We are planning on officially becoming a 501c3 Non-Profit in 2023. Currently we operate without any profit and Dr. Clarke has paid over $12,000 of his own money to the women of Mamabird. We currently have an AMAZING fiscal sponsor in The Center for Trauma & Resilience and if anyone wants to make a large tax free donation to Mamabird please contact us as we can do that through our Fiscal Sponsor to benefit all.
