... with Donn Cooper from Georgia Organics heading for Koinonia Farm in Americus Georgia to film a Field Trip! episode. Then to Cafe Campesino in Americus for the opening of the garden and an outdoor screening of GROW!
Wednesday we are up early and heading to White Oak Pastures to shoot two episodes of Field Trip! with Tripp Eldridge.
What's going on? GROW! has just won the Earth Award at the 2013 Cinema Verde Film Festival. We have been going to GROW! screenings as it continues to play in festivals, schools, events and for community groups (Dallas, Houston and Austin, Texas; Algona, Illinois; St. Louis, Missouri and Graz, Austria are coming up). We cut a 32 minute version of GROW! for the cable program "Natural Heroes" to be aired on PBS stations and their affiliates in the fall. GROW! is available to stream/download online around the world or order your own 60 minute Deluxe DVD with 30 minutes of extras. Also up is the second season of Field Trip!, our farmer to farmer series for Georgia Organics. Click to watch season one. As always we continue to shoot magazine and commissioned assignments (see Postings: Selborne Lane and Unique Nashville). We are currently in the middle of shooting Terra Firma, our next documentary. Filming takes place in Iowa, North Carolina and Georgia. And just to keep the hounds of lethargy and sloth at bay, we're in development on a number of other film (documentary/narrative) and photography projects.
While filming GROW! for extended periods in the area we set up our production office here. It has been integral to our Georgia experience. A truly beautiful, light-filled, open space. So many great moments and memories; dinners with new and old friends, dancing, cooking, photo shoots, and just hanging out.
