"I used to think depression was weakness. But reaching out was the bravest thing I've done."

May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and so we partnered with Quartet to show how mental health is intrinsically linked to physical health, and how reaching out for help improves both, while reducing the stigma surrounding mental health.

WhatsApp: We Speak Out

"We know the pain and silence, we will not allow our daughters to know it."

As a part of our ongoing partnership with WhatsApp, we worked with our local Indian production team to produce this film about We Speak Out, an organization made by and for survivors of FGM (female genital mutilation) to raise their voices to end the practice in India.

Using WhatsApp, We Speak Out creates a safe space to unite and empower its members, many of whom had never publicly shared their stories of FGM before joining this community of women with shared experiences.

To learn more about We Speak Out and their incredible work, check out their website at https://www.speakoutnow.org/.

Two years ago Britta Culbertson brought Nicholas Bruckman and Ryder Haske on a once in a life time expedition deep into the rainforests of East Kalimantan, Indonesia. In a remote outpost, we documented the work of Eddie Game and his team of scientists as they collected audio recordings that help us understand biodiversity in the region and the effects of deforestation. This video was made for The Nature Conservancy Nature Works Everywhere program, which creates free environmental science curriculum material available to educators worldwide. #throwbackthursday #nature #videoproduction

In 2016, the Bornean #Orangutan became "critically endangered".

We followed The Nature Conservancy scientists who are using innovative acoustic technology to ensure that what's left of the orangutans' habitat is protected.

Frames from our recent production in Uganda. Bashir, pictured at the top, grew up in a rural farm-village where he and his siblings lived almost entirely off of the land, with no running water or electricity. Much has changed for Bashir since he was a boy and it has been an honor to tell his story.
