TotemBridge is the story of a father and self-taught fly fisherman (@theblackstonefly) who leaves the inner city to join an Indigenous-led voyage throughout salmon country to fight for the historic freeing of the Snake River. We’ve been honored to take part in the Our Shared Responsibility: A Totem Pole Journey and honored to be a part of Totem Bridge - The Film

Now filming.

Back in 2020, the Oregon Bureau of Labor & Industries (BOLI) expanded their veteran services within their apprenticeship training division, and they came to us to tell this story.

Most veterans are unaware these services even exist, but what it’s ultimately offering is a pathway to a career…a helping hand where it’s so desperately needed. They’re uniquely positioned to provide this support through the talents of their team, some of whom are veterans themselves (Lisa Ransom and Aaron Unpingco), which creates an opportunity for connection and understanding on a level far-and-above the typical human-to-business transaction. BOLI’s focus is human-to-human, providing grounded, connective conversations and letting you know they care and they’re here to help you transition into a career you truly care about, even providing insight into how apprenticeships aren’t all too dissimilar from your time in the service! There really is no better fit.

Last year, iQ Credit Union came to us wanting to create a new employee hire video that authentically reflected the iQ Crew spirit. Think the Pacific Northwest, sasquatch, and a whole lot of buffalo plaid! We had an absolute blast with this collaboration and couldn’t be happier with how it came together.

In February of 2020, Atkore’s Pendleton, Oregon PVC pipe manufacturing plant was hit by a once-in-a-lifetime flood, prompting evacuations, highway closures and emergency declarations. Unable to avoid the floodwaters, the Pendleton plant lost everything. A year later, they’re back in production. Wanting to tell this story, they sought our help in creating a 3-5 minute piece talking about what unfolded here all while promoting the reopening and the products they offer.

The Black Stonefly, Trailer

We’re so proud to announce that our short film, The Black Stonefly, has most recently been accepted into the Telluride Film Festival! This project would not have been possible without the collaboration of Freebuilt Films and Hard Row Productions.

Gian Lawrence (@theblackstonefly) is a fly fisherman and outdoorsman with a unique origin story. Growing up in Puyallup and Tacoma’s Hilltop, he fell into a life of crime, violence and destitution until a near-death experience opened his eyes and his soul to the outdoors and a sport largely inaccessible for young black men like himself, fly fishing.

Susannah, The Challenge.

With all the challenges this pandemic has caused, the @oregonfoodbank has seen an increase in demand, and thankfully the local community has stepped up to help meet those demands. From a local woman baking giant cinnamon rolls and donating the profits, to Pacific Seafood and the Retherford family of Newport donating 30,000lbs of rockfish, help has come from all over the state to help provide food to those in need. #portlandporchproject #alonetogether #togetherathome #covid19 #socialdistancing #coronavirus #istayhome #oregonfoodbank

Portland Porch Project - Suzanne

Positive news is in short supply these days, so it was incredible to hear about the recent outpouring of support for Meals On Wheels People. The organization addresses senior isolation and hunger, which is of even greater importance than usual due to covid-19. As Suzanne said, it’s amazing to see how much the Portland community cares about our older folks.

We all remember our final months of high school and how many special events took place during that time. For 2020 seniors, those moments and memories have been taken away due to covid-19.

If you know a high school or college senior, encourage them to reflect on their accomplishments and hard work of the past four years. Try to make this time special for them, and remind them of how proud they’ve made you. Reassure them that there will be so many special moments to come in the future.

Who is giving you strength during this time? Maybe it’s your mom, or your dad, your grandma, your partner, your children. Whoever it is, use this time to take the strength they give you and lift up others. Everyone could use some encouragement right now, even if it’s a simple phone call to check in and say, “I’m here for you. You got this.”

Undoubtedly, our healthcare workers are the heroes of this pandemic, and they are simultaneously facing some of the greatest challenges. Thank every healthcare worker you know right now, and as Jen said, please continue to save lives by staying at home.

WE GOT THIS PDX

Brittany’s message to Portland is exactly what we needed to see during this time. And she’s not the only one we’ve seen letting people know they’re not alone in this. The amount of artwork and sidewalk chalk we see on our daily walks in each of our neighborhoods has been inspiring and gives us a sense of hope. Keeping up creativity can be challenging in times of hardship, but each new message of positivity we see encourages us to create something that will remind others to keep their head up. We got this, PDX!

Mindset is everything during this time.

It feels like we don’t have a lot of choices right now…but what if you reframe your mindset and embrace this tough situation as a growing opportunity to learn something new about yourself? Maybe we can show up for others in a way we never have and find a new strength within ourselves.

2020 started out looking like the year of growth. We were excited for the projects and opportunities opening themselves up for the year ahead…then COVID-19 hit us. And everyone. And it hit us really hard. Within days of the national emergency declaration, projects were canceled and shelved and postponed indefinitely. Like a lot of other small businesses, we are not sure what the future holds. This is a scary and unprecedented time, and each one of us is feeling it in different ways, both personally and professionally. Our day to day lives have morphed into something unrecognizable, and we are all adjusting in ways we never imagined.

In this time of uncertainty, we as a company, and as individuals, have been trying to find a way to give back a piece of what we have all been missing - a small bit of human connection, of living in each others’ shoes, of understanding. And our strength is storytelling - so we are here to tell each others’ stories. We hope that this small project brings back some of the community, that personal connection, that Portland has given us over the last decade. We hope you enjoy and feel a bit of that community too. We will be sharing more stories from our Portland neighbors over the coming weeks.

Amtrak

Check out this piece we did for Amtrak up in Seattle recently!

You've probably heard of Lashawnda Jones' famous Sleeping Car décor. This month passengers enjoyed a Memorial Day-themed journey thanks to Lashawnda's creativity! It's team members like Lashawnda that help passengers get carried away with #Amtrak.

I Am // Madeline

A short form biopic of a female athlete, Madeline.

The idea to create this piece came to fruition over a few phone calls and coffee all thanks to a mutual friend. We had the opportunity to work with Madeline for two days in Palm Desert, California while she was taking a short break between performance gigs. During this intense and intimate period we sketched out what we wanted to create, the story we wanted to share and the feelings we wanted to evoke. We then got to work. In this process, her free spirit and dedication shone through, and brought us this short piece.

Thanks to all our friends, collaborators and the Lightbox team.

We love connecting people with visual storytelling

Initially, we traveled the world shooting events for a variety of clients wanting cinematic wedding films. Around the same time we began to develop a strong understanding of the corporate and commercial video production world. Soon after we were introduced to companies that needed help translating their company vision and/or concepts into reality. We not only focus our efforts in the production of video and photo content but we also develop concepts and strategy for companies of all sizes.

What connects your customers to you is the story of how you can make their lives better. Lightbox Filmworks specializes in video content that tells that story in the most imaginative and moving way possible.

Our process:

Plan: The center of any great film is a great concept. Through extensive research and brainstorming, we will develop the concept that makes your message irresistible
