Many thanks for the opportunity
As an avid user of the resources of the Kennebec Valley Region this project is near and dear to my heart. In fact, if it weren’t for the Kennebec River, and my early foray into filmmaking as a video kayaker for a whitewater rafting outfitter, I wouldn’t be writing to you today.
It’s the small town vibe, the people, the long drives up 201, the abundance of lakes and streams and of course the mighty Kennebec. It’s the farmers markets, the brew festivals, the 4th of July celebrations, the country stores and the characters along the way. It’s the adventure, the experiences, the wildness of the place and the sheer beauty of Western Maine. It’s all these things and more that brought me home. I’m the anomaly; I’m the twenty-something who returned to Maine. And that is why I want to help you tell the story of this amazing place. I have brought my good friends from Timber + Frame along to help. Together, we’re confident we can produce a video series that showcases the rich natural and cultural resources of the Kennebec Valley Region.
The T&F Team
Timber & Frame is an EMMY award winning production company that makes films around the world and lives on the coast of Maine. We specialize in filming real people (instead of actors) and creating intimate poignant films that blend the lines between documentary and cinema.
As native northern New Englanders we have had the pleasure of filming across the region for organizations such as the Appalachian Mountain Club, The Nature Conservancy, Trust for Public Land, Friends of Acadia, and Maine Coast Heritage Trust. Here are a few examples of our work, some of these projects are yet to be released so you will need a password to watch.
