"Another Silent Night" - United Nations
32 refugee girls from 17 countries. 1 night in NYC to remind the world of what it really means to be a refugee. In collaboration with VML we spent three weeks following these women as they reworked a classic Christmas carol to share a message of hope.
"Faces of Millennial" - Radiotopia, PRX
We wanted to strip away the flashy production value and make a video that was just all story and heart. After interviewing dozens of young people from around the world we created an unscripted and intimate film about being a part of this misunderstood generation.
"The First Coast" - The First Coast
A passion project for a person and a cause we really believed in, we took the opportunity to get creative and stretch our legs. The resulting mini documentary doubled the contributions to the First Coast crowdfunding campaign within 24 hours of launching.
"CENTENNIAL" - Friends of Acadia
How do you bring a fresh perspective to one of America's most beloved National Parks? By focusing on the emotional connections of the young people who love the park and less on the scenery we were able to create a film that both celebrated the park and pushed the boundaries of the client. It was amazing to watch it play on the jumbotron at Fenway park with the entire stadium going quiet to watch.
"21 in 1" - Motorola
In collaboration with VML, we followed famed photographer Ryan Schude as he attempted to take his most challenging photo yet using only a cellphone. "21 in 1" and the ambitious interactive instagram campaign surrounding it, went on to be shortlisted for a Webby award.
"Fisherman" - Nature Conservancy
Created to help sway public opinion surrounding a legislative vote that threatened the livelihoods of Mainers, the video helped push the legislation through targeted outreach. The film went on to tour the state with the Camden International Film Festival.
"When We Bake" - Country Crock
In collaboration with Story Worldwide we took a simple story about a real mom in Ohio and brought in over 7.2 million views in the first few months.
"Reissued" - Motorola
In collaboration with VML, Motorola "Reissued" garnered over 30k organic views within 24 hours of launching online. It went on to be picked up by Mashable, The Verge, and Hypebeast among others.
"Remember Me" - BRWP
How do you get a community to care about their watershed? By featuring only real community members (no actors) and real archive footage dating back to the 1930's we were able to make an emotional connection between the people and their water. This short film went on to win a regional EMMY for best PSA.
"Go Jackson Doll" - Gliding Stars
What began as a fundraising tool went on to play at film festivals across the country. It's currently used as an awareness and educational tool at organizations such as the Akron Children's Hospital and visiting professors at USC.
"Kyle and the Unicorn"
National Geographic Society
Since the 1800's millions of Atlantic Salmon have been released into America's rivers never to survive. Every state has given up trying to save the species except for a few small dedicated groups in far northern Maine. Kyle and the Unicorn is a short documentary about the lengths some will go to save a species most people have already forgotten. Funded with help from the National Geographic Society.
"The Fight to Run"
Our first feature length documentary, The Fight to Run, follows a disabled U.S. veteran who, after being denied the surgery she needs, crowdfunds for the money to travel to a Mexican border town to amputate her legs in order to have a better life and realize her dreams of competing in the Paralympic Games. Currently in post production and due out in 2018.
And we love:
Helping nonprofits use film to fight the good fight.
Finding the intimate stories hiding in the biggest companies.
Chasing the unscripted, spontaneous and ethereal
(Anyone can put a fish in a barrel and film it).
Discovering the hidden hopes, fears, and dreams of the people we are filming.
Getting our hands dirty in the remotest of places.
So if this all sounds up your alley, we would love to meet you.
Welcome to the T&F way.
