Where Does Your Food Come From?
To assure food security for our future, in a time the average age of a farmer is over 60 years old, we need programs that connect kids back with this cycle, and teach them how to do it sustainably. This was created to help keep funders excited. It won a national award for best video by a Resource Conservation District in 2012.
The reason the public is so hesitant to spend our funds on the environment is that we have no concept of how the destruction of nature leads to the destruction of humans. Given an assignment to “cover” these historical events, we chose to bring out the story behind what healthy ecosystems mean for our water supply, our food supply, our health, and our communities.
Saving Salmon, Saving Us
“Salmon Creek” had not had salmon in it for decades, so we took advantage of being witness to the historic salmon release, by making a documentary about why salmon have all but disappeared, and what that means for our future. The film is now used to teach children about their connection to nature, and to teach adult students about fish restoration.

Tear Down This Dam
Camp Meeker was created as a swimming-hole community in the early 1900′s, but when authorities concerned about their dam’s ecological impact shut down a few years ago, the community had to reexamine its connection to the land and decide to rebuild a place good for both fish and people. But they never imagined the problems they’d run into…
This was a film used to inspire and inform towns that are considering taking down their dams, and to let the funders of the project know where their dollars went.

Apart from policy change films, we do other work for non-profits geared toward getting people involved in a more politically active and sustainable lifestyle. Let us know what your vision is, and we’ll work together to make it happen.
