We make films around the world and live on
the coast of Maine.

Our films are crafted with thought and care
so our clients can put them to work.

 If films aren't used as tools to create an impact, why make them at all?

COMMERCIAL

"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.

"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. 

"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.

                                       

"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.

"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.        

"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.


                

"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 when on to win a regional EMMY for best PSA.

 

DOCUMENTARY

"The Mountain and The Magic City"

In the shadow of a northern mountain, a place once known as
The Magic City stands on the brink of collapse, abandoned by industry and threatened by a proposed national park that has the power to unite or divide it. This is the story of what happens when the American Dream is lost and what one community will sacrifice to get it back. Currently in production and due out in 2018.

"Ghostfish" - 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. Ghostfish 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.

 

"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.

 

"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. 

 

"Millennial" - PRX, Radiotopia

The break-out hit documentary podcast, Millennial, has been lauded by The Atlantic, The Guardian, Refinery 29, Buzzfeed, Huffington Post among others. It has hit #12 on the worldwide iTunes charts and was recently picked up by PRX and Radiotopia. Its hundreds of thousands of listeners have attracted sponsors including Squarespace, Blue Apron and Amazon.

 

"Instead of Your Name" - Alzheimer's Association

After premiering to a standing room only crowd, a fund was established to handle the sudden increase in fundraising dollars for Alzheimer's programs. It since has become the single largest source of new donors for the Findlay-Hancock Community Foundation.

 

 

There are a couple things to know about us..
 

We love helping nonprofits use film to fight the good fight.

We love finding the personal, intimate stories hiding in the biggest companies.

We love chasing the unscripted, spontaneous and ethereal.
(Anyone can put a fish in a barrel and film it. We want to hunt the wild fish because it makes our films more beautiful and honest than we could have scripted.)

We love discovering the hidden hopes, fears, and dreams of the people we are filming. 

We love getting our hands dirty in the remotest of places. From Bosnia to the Amazon to Mexican border towns, we are all about sleeping on the ground and filming aboard just about anything that moves.

And we love meeting new people. So if this all sounds up your alley, we would love to meet you.


Welcome to the T&F way.

Whats with the name?

 

Even though some people mistake us for a construction company, we are proud to know our name is in honor of Ben's dad, Chuck, a carpenter in New Hampshire who taught him the ways of the entrepreneur.

Chuck believed that when you treat someone poorly your company will disappear faster than poop through a goose (as he would say).

We want to work with people who know that being a good person and working with people you like is more important than most anything else.

And because of that we don't take on every job..but when we do, you get all of us from frame to finish.

Have an idea for a collaboration? Or curious to learn more?

Let's talk shop.
