How Life Unfolds

A new project we shot a few months back for How Life Unfolds . We had a blast out in Ticonderoga, NY filming in and around lakes, forest, and paper mills.

The breathtaking Adirondack Park houses a community that cares for its surrounding environment. In our latest #FacesoftheForest video, we walk you through the uniqueness of the land and how conservation and sustainability are top priorities. Learn more at http://hluf.us/e6X250BUELf

A recent project for How Life Unfolds that took us on a lovely autumn drive to Ticonderoga, New York. Got to talk forest and trees with a bunch of foresters and residents of the area.

We had a great first half of the week filming with @ssgtravismills for a new national client. The @travismillsfoundation has an amazing campus and everyone were gracious hosts.

More from our recent shoot this week. Shooting timelapse on the @sonyprousa #fx9 was really easy. Having some pre-assembled SLog3 images in 4K means we can go into the edit right away.

Out on location shooting recreations in covidworld with co-director / producer extraordinaire @caroline207maine and trombonist @lilyydeborah for our ongoing feature doc @ethelgabrieldoc. What a beautiful night. Looking forward to sharing this film someday. Feeling lucky to be able to do this work with such talented women.

We are honored to have been awarded a Maine Arts Commission Project Grant for artists. Production, gear, archival research and travel all factor into our film, and we will put this generous funding to good use. Here’s a still from a visit to SONY Archives in New York last year, with Christoph Gelfand @truelifemedia shooting and Producer/Lead Researcher April Tucker @proaudiogirl interviewing Sony Archivist Tom Tierney about the SONY Archives about Ethel Gabriel. We are grateful to Maine Arts Commission for their support of our film. #documentary #mainefilm #womeninsound

Saddened to learn of the passing of Edgar Gatto, subject of our 2018 short film “Good News”, made in collaboration with @caroline207maine. A staple of Portland’s Bayside neighborhood and a complicated character, Edgar could tell a good story whether you had time for it or not. We were grateful to have had a chance to get a glimpse into his junk shop before it closed and became an oyster bar. Thinking of his life today.

Purina

Here’s a snippet from a recent project we produced for Purina featuring Maria Menounos for a great cause.

Did you know that nearly half of domestic violence victims stay in abusive relationships because they don’t want to leave their pets behind? Purina and RedRover created the #PurpleLeashProject to ensure that no one has to choose between their own safety and their pets. See how you can help: http://purpleleashproject.com

HealthRight | NGO Video | Uganda | True Life Media

We're excited to be working with HealthRight to create an NGO video that highlights some of their work in Uganda. HealthRight is one of very few global health non-governmental organizations (NGOs) with the ability to deliver integrated health solutions that address mental health for the most vulnerable populations. They support holistic health programming in Burundi, Kenya, Nepal, Uganda, Ukraine, the United States and Vietnam. We'll be producing work for a few of their markets as they continue to grow.
