Ara Elizabeth

Kickstarter Video

Rise and Shine is a book calling to us, and to our children, to rise up and shine on. To know that we are here to create change, and that even the simplest acts can be catalysts. I worked with Ara and her family to create a storyboard, film, edit, and assisted with on-camera coaching. This 3-minute video will help raise funds to publish her book.

Tom Kemmer builds beautiful handmade skateboards at his tiny shop Kemmco Cruisers. But he’s built so much more than that where he lives in Fargo, North Dakota. He and a handful of skate enthusiasts spent 6 months building a skateboarding cooperative called The Hawk’s Nest. Tom and others work together to refine the cooperative and expand their community. Tom’s philosophy: “All are welcome.”

and Making a Film In Africa

T.R. Boyce Jr. has been working on sound for film and television since 1995, from “The Bourne Legacy” to the HBO series “Girls.” A few years ago, filmmaker and writer Andrew Mudge persuaded T.R. to make a film in Lesotho, a tiny country that resides completely inside the borders of South Africa. Together, director Andrew Mudge and producer T.R. Boyce Jr. made the film The Forgotten Kingdom, a beautiful story about a man who travels back to his homeland, and begins a journey to discover who he is.
