Greater Northshire News

Hats off to MANCHESTER, VT, just 10 days away from its next big step in community-building & transformation. We were proud to be part of the Visiting Team on March 11 - as citizens explored challenges facing the town and key ideas that can help move it forward. On April 11, citizens gather again to vote & prioritize their first action steps toward creating a new future. LOOK TO VCRD and Paul Costello, featured in this news clip, for more details and models for change. This is the same revitalization-in-progress work that RUTLAND began just a few years ago. Great things lie ahead, as Rutland, just up the road, can attest.

Making of "Lustre" - Climbing to the top of the Brooklyn Bridge. JULY 2002

Encourage & attempt the improbable - CLIMB EVERY MOUNTAIN - scale every bridge. 10 YEARS AGO, our filmmaking team climbed the cables to the top of the west tower of the BROOKLYN BRIDGE to shoot the climax of our feature film, LUSTRE. A filmmaking first, we captured a full scene with actors on that tower (the late, great Vic Argo & the venerable Jordan Lage) - at night, at the height of Code Orange, to show that NY spirit & wonder still thrived in the wake of 9/11. Special thanks to DP Benjamin Wolf, Patricia Yoon, Jennifer Levy, Chad Birmingham & the 6 ironworkers who guided us up & back. To date, the most breathtaking night (and sight) of my life.

Vermont town's blood drive, film draw notice

Film and its power to make change - in small towns, struggling cities and organizations needing a turnaround. We are proud to be growing out national outreach behind "The Blood in this Town."

RUTLAND, Vt. — When documentary filmmaker Art Jones and his five-man crew set out from New York to shoot footage of a blood drive in a small Vermont city, he did it to satisfy an old friend, one of the organizers. Jones figured it might make a nice four-minute film.
