Joakim Noah Video on Gun Violence Features Teammates Taj Gibson and Derrick Rose

noahfilm

It’s a film project led by Joakim Noah. It features current Bulls teammates Taj Gibson, Nazr Mohammed and Derrick Rose. The message is about gun violence, and it’s a powerful one. Credit to Noah for tapping into his network of relationships to make this happen (former Bull Luol Deng was also interviewed for the piece, but, ultimately, is not included in the final cut). The eight-minute film, produced by Noah and directed by noted documentarian Alex Kotlowitz, seeks in part to encourage the expanded net of victims of gun violence (parents, sibling, friends) to open up, share their pain and realize, as the title of the film says, “you’re not alone.”

I couldn’t help but think as I watched this that the “project,” though commendable, could be much more. Sadly, the stories that could be gathered from Noah’s counterparts around the NBA alone are probably far too many. The story deserves more telling. Nonetheless, I applaud the work.

The effort also directly and indirectly serves to foster the mission of his Noah’s Arc Foundation: to provide “diverse opportunities for kids to become more aware and conscious of their ability to make a positive impact on themselves and their community.

Good work, Mr. Noah.

    No worries, I’ll be glad to help. Are you on a mac or pc? Basically you just want to open up the photo in what ever app you view your phoots in. Then you want to look for the option to resize the image (usually under the option to edit.) You’ll want to make the width something like 580 and leave the height blank. If you see a quality slider / option move it down to about 80%. Than click export, or save as, and save as a new image. (Make sure you don’t save over the original photo.) Then you should be able to upload no problem. These are sort of the basics of how to resize a photo, but if you can’t figure it out, let me know what type of computer / image program you are using I’ll try to help you figure it out. (And if anyone else wants to chime in and help, they are welcome to.) Looking forward to seeing your picture.
