We make videos to help those who inspire us.
The social workers and the moms and the entrepreneurs.
The get-no-credit people in this world who are making a difference.
Our videos are crafted with thought and care so that people can focus
on what they need to focus on: their mission.
We make films around the world and live the coast of Maine.

"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.
"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.
