Each year harvest dedicates it’s time and resources to give back to our community through philanthropy to local nonprofits or otherwise under represented persons or companies that rely solely on the donations and goodwill of others.

Recently we joined forces with Neda DeMayo, Founder of Return to Freedom (RTF), a nonprofit organization that relies on the generosity of the community to save wild horses and b***os from BLM roundups and holding pens in the Western United States. RTF finds and creates sanctuaries for these animals, they provide food and water each day, pay for veterinary care, as well as work with the legislature by lobbying on behalf of these iconic wild mustangs and b***os. RTF also provides education to local schools and hosts young children and their classes to the various sanctuaries.

This short film was shot from the perspective of the wild horse. It challenges the PTSD moments these horses experience from roundups and shares the intimacy and family structures that exist amongst these wild mustangs. Horses run when they’re being chased; we wanted to share the ‘real’ moments, the tender moments horses cherish.

harvest sat down with key players and observed, documented and filmed these majestic horses to bring an awareness to the organization. RTF relies on charitable contributions to continue feeding (hay prices have more than doubled in the last year) and providing safe environments for these horses to live in.

The link below shares some of the many ways of getting involved including sponsoring a horse and/or a b***o ❤️

We recently had the distinct pleasure of collaborating with Stephen and the Boss family and what a truly amazing tribe they are. Our hearts and prayers go out to all near and dear to Stephen “tWitch” Boss, who’s untimely passing leaves us all reeling. We only hope that they may try to find some peace during this difficult time.

Much love. 💔

Day 70.....COVID-19

(Just writing that makes me feel like a version of 2020 Cpt. Kirk on the bridge of the Enterprise; I digress).....

We miss our crews, our cast, our clients and agencies, our friends and that special synergy that bonds us in the trenches of production.

We miss our community, you.

We send all of you the best of thoughts and can’t wait to see you in the new frontier we’re about to embark into: Post-COVID production....ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

I have faith we’ll figure this out together and let our integrity, our science and common sense guide us, as it has done for a lifetime of shoots....be well and see you soon(ish).

We are thrilled to share that our latest film project THE DANCE will have its world premiere at the prestigious BFI London Film Festival this October, where it will compete for the acclaimed Grierson Award for best documentary.

The film follows the staging of a new international dance and theatre work (MÁM) by the acclaimed choreographer Michael Keegan-Dolan from the first day of rehearsal to the opening night performance.

Co-produced by South Wind Blows + harvest films, THE DANCE is a fiercely true + beautiful account of a magical process of work, brought to life by the inimitable (Song of Granite, Silence).

Break Out Pictures will release THE DANCE in cinemas in 2022.
