When I started sharing this story with some of my filmmaking friends and colleagues, they all began taking an interest in JJ. Before you knew it, we had people all over the United States who wanted to be a part of this project. I assume that our production team will significantly grow after The JJ Project gains even more momentum. JJ’s story is important to everyone because his is a story of courage, conviction, and tenacity.
About the Project
COLUMBUS – The next stop for Team JJ was on the Good Day Columbus program on WSYX Fox28 in Columbus this morning. JJ House and Bruce Jacklin talked with Shawn Ireland and Pete Scalia about the upcoming production of How I Became a Pirate and the documentary project. Scenes from the documentary were used as b-roll footage for the show.
There is no rest for the weary. It’s only Tuesday during the week and eleven-year-old JJ House has been busy keeping speaking engagements to various groups as he and his production team of children are out about town raising awareness and money for The JJ Project.
UPPER ARLINGTON – When the Goodwill Industries was looking for presenters to entertain over 200 staff for their Staff Development Training Day, organizers stumbled along our video of the JJ Project. Immediately the organizing committee said that they wanted JJ House to speak to them about his story. Tiffany Mickley, a relative of the House family who also works at Goodwill in Columbus, became the liaison, and JJ, Sharon, and Ray House made the trip to their on-site employment, distribution center, and program agency in Upper Arlington on Friday, August 2nd.
