The Human Factor

The human faces and stories of the AIDS epidemic will be available to future students, researchers and the public, via an unusual "video library" now being edited for AIDS Project Los Angeles.

For the past year, volunteers from the entertainment industry have donated their time, profiling on tape six people with AIDS, their family members and closest friends; the goal is about 100 individual histories. One of the six subjects has died of AIDS complications since taping began.

Reba Merrill and Barry Simon, who head companies that produce video press kits, have spearheaded the project, said APLA spokesman Andrew Weiser.
