The success of the Faces of Santa Ana short documentary has led us to dream even BIGGER.   In partnership with FoSA non-profit, Retina Cam Productions is crowd-funding to shoot a feature length documentary that you can support by way of a tax-free donation.  In shedding light on the one on one, human to human approach learned from Brian, we know the telling of continuing stories in a feature film will be seen by a wide and vast audience. We believe the power of this film will inspire other individuals and communities to change their ways of viewing and addressing the homeless.  Please help to spread this inspiration to the world by donating to the film.  Thank you for your support.

About the Filmmakers


Born in Pakistan and raised in the US, Daud has a passion for telling stories through visual medium which is evident in the  personal touch of his filmmaking style. Daud has written and directed short films, commercials and music videos while working his way to making his debut feature film in 2017.  What drew Daud to filming the “Faces of Santa Ana” story is Brian’s one on one, human to human interaction with each and every homeless person he’s helped, proving that compassion and love on a personal level works.


Co-owner of Retina Cam and Retina Cam Productions, Faces of Santa Ana is Wendy’s second short film shot in 2015.  Her first film “Visitors Parking” was selected for screening in several festivals while winning a Best Short Film award at the Action on Film Festival in September 2015.   Wendy was touched by Brian Peterson’s story from the minute she met him and was driven to share it with as many as possible via documentary. The press and positive response to the film including being selected to screen in eight festivals so far and having won several awards in the process is icing on the cake.
