The two sisters, Sonia and Anita, are among 20 million children and adults that could have their eyesight restored through a 15-minute surgery that costs just $300, according to WonderWork. The video and stills documenting their story will support 20/20/20, a WonderWork charity that aims to bring 20/20 vision to the 20 million in need.

Brent traveled to India on assignment by Blue Chalk and documented the story of two sisters, both born blind, and followed them through the emotional process of receiving their surgeries and seeing for the first time. Working with a top-tier creative team including cinematographer Robert Wilson, editor Greg Snider, music composer Tyler Strickland and executive producer Rob Finch, Blue Chalk created a short-form video in several different formats to support its fundraising efforts as well as a library of high-quality still images that WonderWork can use in printed direct mail pieces.

Ragini is one of millions of children who are suffering from severe burn injuries. Through a quick and inexpensive miracle surgery, these children can be saved, according to WonderWork. The video and stills documenting Ragini's surgery support BurnRescue, a WonderWork charity created to provide free surgeries for these children.

Brent traveled to India for Blue Chalk to document the powerful story of Ragini, a nine-year-old girl who was severely burned and, after seven and a half years, treated by a renowned plastic surgeon for the poor, Dr. Subodh Kumar Singh.
