The Faces of CalWORKs

This video shows what happens when government and good hearted people come together to uplift the lives of those who need and deserve a hand up.

Produced, directed, scripted, music composition and singing,
and editing by Sharon Janis and Night Lotus Productions, in association with
UCSD Healthcare and the county of San Diego's Health and Human Services, with input from many associate agencies and the heads of San Diego's human services departments, including domestic violence, mental health, drug and alcohol, and homelessness.


An inspiring 21-minute documentary about a government program that offers resources and one-on-one care to lift people up -- often out of dire circumstances -- and help them to create a successful life for themselves and their children. Sponsored by the County of San Diego Health and Human Services Agency in collaboration with the University of California at San Diego School of Medicine, Department of Psychiatry. This video has been playing in welfare offices, homeless shelters, domestic violence programs, and regularly on the San Diego County Television station. Watch the whole video in this clip.

Or Click Here to view at YouTube

Now you can't say that the Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers was not an inspired show! It was the number one children's program around the globe for several years in the 1990's. Sharon Janis was an editor for the show, and also created this music video for Top of the Pop's.   This video was produced by Simon Cowell while he was living in his parents' house due to financial lack, and it was his first great success as this video propelled the song to the Top of the Pops.

News Features from Disney's KCAL
Prime Nine News, Los Angeles

Produced and edited by Sharon Janis

Click on the TV to View this Video Clip

This is a montage of video clips that were produced and edited in the early 1990's for Disney's KCAL-TV in Los Angeles. This was Sharon's first full-time job after spending 10 years living a monastic life, and these pieces show how, with spiritual focus, even so-called tragic events can have great depth of meaning and beauty -- God's creation in action right here on earth.

This is a clip from the X-Men television show, which includes a cameo by an animated Sharon Janis with her well-rehearsed lines, "Oh come on, a demon? You must be kidding!" Turns out it was not a demon but just Nightcrawler taking refuge in a monastery, but that's another story.  Sharon was editor and associated producer for this show for two years.
