As part of our “Seeker Series,” we recently traveled to the Big Island of Hawaii to film Michelle Collins, “The Running Astronomer.” A Hubble Fellow at Yale University, Michelle spends her days studying the origins of the cosmos. Running is big part of her daily routine; Michelle not only loves the sport, but also utilizes the time while running to come at her work from a different perspective, think more clearly and maybe even have an “aha” moment or two.

Tipping Point Community, an organization that helps combat poverty in the bay area, commissioned us to make a short film for their 2014 benefit. We chose to tell a common story of challenge and hardship in the bay area due to poverty. A hardworking family put into a bad situation and not given much hope to get out of it.

The Conditioned.jpg

Raimundo Arruda Sobrinho was homeless in São Paulo, Brazil, for nearly 35 years, and became locally known for sitting in the same spot and writing every day. In April 2011, he was befriended by a young woman named Shalla Monteiro. Impressed by his poetry and wanting to help him with his dream of publishing a book, she created a Facebook Page to feature Raimundo’s writing. Neither could have expected what happened next.

See more about Raimundo and his poetry on his Facebook Page maintained by Shalla: facebook.com/ocondicionado

 

This short film uses footage from a documentary about Raimundo shot in São Paulo in 2011 and 2012, along with interviews and scenes filmed in Goîana, Brazil, in January 2014.

This is one of 10 stories celebrating Facebook's 10th anniversary and a decade of connections made possible through the platform. See the rest at facebookstories.com/10

PRIDE Facebook.jpg

In the US, more than 6 million people on Facebook have identified themselves as gay, lesbian, bi-sexual, transgender or gender non-conforming, and nearly 1 million people in the US have joined a Facebook group in support of the LGBTQ community.

This is the story of Justin Kamimoto, who in 2011, started a Facebook Group to support LGBTQ youth in the conservative area of California’s Central Valley. The group has helped countless of teens and young adults find acceptance, an outlet, friends, and in some instance, critical assistance in times of crisis. The growth and impact of the group inspired Justin to create an organization called My LGBT Plus to provide additional resources for young people, no matter how they identify.

Why We Create.jpg

"WHY WE CREATE MUSIC"  Cutdowns 


"Why We Create Music", commissioned by music organization ASCAP, tells the story of the absolute importance of music with the individuals who create it. Fifteen musicians, ranging from Bill Withers to Aloe Blacc to Lady Antebellum, sit down with the director, Michael Marantz, to discuss their labor of love, songwriting and composing. Each featured artist was asked to contribute a musical or lyrical element to a base song that Marantz composed, ultimately generating the collaborative soundtrack that plays over video footage of them in the process of writing it.

This project was commissioned to celebrate ASCAP's 100th year, see more at: ascap100.com.
