“When I was running for the US Congress, I had to have the highest quality video work for my web site and online presence. It had to be done in a compressed timeline and had to compete with campaigns that were outspending mine by huge margins. Ty Cooper not only delivered, he surpassed every expectation that my team and I had.”

Film Projects

America’s Darkest Future

America’s Darkest Future is a documentary addressing the haunted issue of the inaccessibility of quality early education (pre-K) in this country and provides a contrast and comparison to what’s offered in the U.S. and internationally. Most interestingly, it captures an internal look into a variety of pockets in the states where high quality pre-K is offered universally while the majority of the country goes without. Virginia Organizing serves as the film’s fiscal partner, a state-wide non-profit organization located in Charlottesville, Virginia.

The filmmakers have traveled the nation capturing interviews and a profile of the providers of quality pre-K such as CapTulsa located in Tulsa, OK. Interviews from scholars such as Robert Pianta, Dean of the Curry School of Education - University of Virginia, as well as parents, teachers, administrators, government officials, random street interviews, and others with the objective of figuring out why is high quality pre-K inaccessible to the majority of children in a country which once pride itself of equal opportunity through education.

Please contact us if you would like to make an 100% tax deductible gift to help this non-profit initiative to be completed. You may send a check made payable to Virginia Organizing and place EARLY EDUCATION DOCUMENTARY on the memo line of the check and send it to: LIFEVIEW MARKETING, 513 East Main Street, Unit #993, Charlottesville, VA 22902.
