RARE Video Project

Global Genes | RARE Project would like your voice to be heard!

Share your home videos!

We are currently looking for your home videos that illustrate what life is like for rare disease patients and caregivers on this complex and often emotional journey.  This could be an assortment of moments that you’ve captured on your phone, a camera, or a digital recording device.  We want the key moments, the most beautiful, personal moments that represent not only the diseases, but you and your child(ren) as well.

A few examples of what we are looking for in these clips:

Births

In Pain

Overcoming

Birthdays

Sadness

Happiness

Hospital Visits

Loss

Laughter

Medicines

Struggle

Important Events

At Play

Tears

Family

Be creative, think outside the box.   Look for clips that are shot well, with nice light.  Give us variety!  Old footage, new footage, maybe even something your child has shot.  We want personal, private moments.  That is what will send the strongest message.

What are we going to do with this?

We are working with an award-winning filmmaking team to select submissions that will be compiled together to create a visual storyline of the years of your ongoing journey.  This is your chance to share the moments that you see and experience with a global audience.

This is your moment to be heard.
