Working on campaigning issues and portrait films allows me to meet and talk with incredible individuals and humanitarians. The making of this portrait film has been a reasonably long process, despite it’s short length of approximately ten minutes. “Not ready to die” is a portrait documentary short about Claire Whittaker and the BRCA2 gene mutation, which I would not blame you for being unaware of, had it not been for the announcement by Hollywood darling Angelina Jolie that she too had had a preventative mastectomy to reduce her risk of genetic breast cancer. I’m far the richer for having shared time with Claire and her family during the recording of this film. There was much I would love to have shared from the additional footage, and indeed please visit her blog through this link and read the story of her small children standing on a bride and waving to the traffic. Best you read it yourself.
