We had a great time shooting at the family-founded Mousam Valley Mushrooms for this Sunday's episode of Plate the State! Don't know how mushrooms are cultivated? Find out this Sunday on NEWS CENTER Maine!

Cultivating mushrooms is a fascinating process we share in our next episode!

We visit the family-founded @mousam_valley_mushrooms to learn how each “cave” mimics the ideal growing conditions for blue oysters, hen of the wood and the best Shiitake‘s chef has ever cooked with.

Thank you for following along with Maine’s premiere farm-to-kitchen cooking show on @newscentermaine.

{VIDEO TEASER} — “One Week At A Time” - Four life long friends complete a 30 year circumnavigation of New England by sea kayak. Starting in their 20s, circa 1983, Tom, Mike, Ben, and Charlie have paddled together, trip-by-trip, checking off coastline segments along the New England and Canadian maritimes. They’ve managed to stay healthy and stay friends along the way, and now close the loop in NYC.

No Umbrella Media is video production company based in Portland, Maine.

The name No Umbrella comes from the old newsprint outdoor rag that Nick Callanan (and Kristen Kaiser!) used to publish back in the day: “No Umbrella – A Reader for River People” published its first issue of outdoor-inspired writing and photography on June 22, 2002 in The Forks, Maine.

Then, in 2007, after 37 issues and 80,000 total copies, Nick made the difficult – but obvious – decision to cease publication. The internet – not to mention the recession – had arrived in central Maine and small newspapers were toast.

Fast forward to a beautiful fall day in 2009: Nick and Nick were kayaking at Steep Falls on the S**o River. Nick B. – who at this point had been working in video for 10 years – starts talking about making outdoor video content for the audience of No Umbrella. So they did. And it was fun and challenging. Within weeks, they were hired to make three different promo videos. From there it was game on.

At No Umbrella Media, our clients hire us to build video tools. We work with clients to understand all project elements: genre, messaging, audience, versions, channels, timeline, budget, personnel, resources, regulations and other nuanced factors.

Kicking off a new 5-year project to help loon breeding success! One component is to build loon rafts. The goal of the raft program is to increase the number of loon chicks hatched through placement and monitoring of nearly 100 loon nesting rafts in territories with low nesting success. When used in the right ways and right situations, rafts have been helping loon pairs hatch chicks for more than 50 years. Thanks to the amazing lake stewards and volunteers who are building rafts for their lakes this spring; to Reed Robinson and Laura Robinson for sharing their modular raft design and expertise; and to No Umbrella Media for helping us make a movie of the whole thing! Photos here are from one of our spring raft-building workshops. Partners include Maine Lakes, Lakes Environmental Association and the Penobscot Nation. This project is funded by the US Fish and Wildlife Service on behalf of the Bouchard Barge 120 Buzzards Bay Oil Spill Trustees. Maine Lakes Lakes Environmental Association #PenobscotNation

We think you'll have a great time with us on BikeMaine, but don't just take our word for it, check out what previous years' riders thought about the experience in our Tales from the Road Series, from No Umbrella Media.
Have you heard of BikeMaine? It's a multi-day bike race in some of the most remotes part of Maine--it's wild! This year, MOFF sponsor, No Umbrella Media, created their 2019 review of the trek and it's being screened this Saturday at the Ciclismo Classico film festival at One Longfellow Square.
We are really excited to share the promotional video that we got as part of our participation with Four A Cause 2019. The In This Together Holiday Fundraiser- inspired by Mary's Mission this Thursday will help us to raise important funds so that we can begin giving out much needed grants to members of our community in 2020. Video produced by No Umbrella Media
Last week we were so blessed with the opportunity to be part of the Four A Cause 2019 event hosted by Benchmark Real Estate. It was an incredible experience and we wanted to share the full version of the video that was shown that night. Thank you to Benchmark,to No Umbrella Media who produced the video, and to Bowdoin College for lending their conference room for us to use, and all involved in the video- Maggie, Clota, and Sabrina for their support, compassion, and bravery in sharing their stories. **This video will be triggering for some people, please watch with a cautious heart.** https://youtu.be/pXwP3_vdQaU
BikeMaine couldn't happen without the volunteer support of countless people in each host community, and being able to give back to the region in the form of economic development is foundational to the event's mission. We are very happy to announce our estimated impact for BikeMaine 2019 is $906,227! This total impact represents a growth of over 20% over the total impact of the 2018 ride, and brings the cumulative, eight year impact of BikeMaine to over $4 Million! photo: No Umbrella Media
