While I can is a documentary project on the McDougal family from Mt. Juliet, Tennessee. In the film, I chronicle one summer in their lives as they travel the country in an RV sharing their inspiring music and story while they battle cystic fibrosis. I presented a work in progress cut of the film in Washington DC in the summer of 2015 at the University Film & Video Association’s annual conference and received a lot of excellent feedback. Currently I am working alongside the family to prepare a cut of the film that they are comfortable with sharing.
