CAHP has been in development since 2014. In 2016 we began our video interviews with members of the North Claiborne Avenue community and are actively applying for funding from various foundations to continue to capture these important voices on camera. Donations enable us to cover the production and post-production costs associated with our video interviews, archival research, copyright clearances, and the development of our interactive website.

Our Fiscal Agent

Video Veracity is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization established in 1993 which supports the production and distribution of documentary film, video, transmedia, and audio work by independent media producers in New Orleans and the surrounding region. The organization provides a crucial link between media producers and foundations, individuals, distributors, other producers, and production facilities. Video Veracity also supports efforts to preserve archival independent film and video.
Video Veracity supports the production of cultural, social-issue, and arts film and video programming, while helping to maintain independent voices in the national and international media. Video Veracity works with similar organizations across the country to promote programming that may not be supported by commercial financing.

Services to media producers include fiscal sponsorship for individual projects, producing advice, technical support as well as fundraising consulting and advocacy. Video Veracity is a collective of experienced media producers with a small board of directors; there is no paid staff so nearly all financial resources go directly to the production and distribution of programming. Donations to Video Veracity are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
