In the early fall we had the opportunity to produce some branded content for Purina brands and to benefit a great cause. Featuring television personality, Maria Menounos, the videos we created helped benefit both Safe Voices (a domestic violence shelter) in Maine as well as the Purple Leash Project. A few of Maine’s local news teams did some videos on the project and now People picked up the story. We enjoyed the opportunity to work with Maria as well as the Purina team and their agency and we got to create some fantastic branded content as well as social media video.
We loved being able to give back a little to Portland Maine by assisting the Maine Tool Library with this short promotional video. The Tool library helps renters and homeowners alike borrow tools for a small subscription fee. It is a volunteer-run tool lending library in Portland, Maine. When folks subscribe to the tool library, they join the MTL team.
We’re excited to be working with HealthRight to create an NGO video that highlights some of their work in Uganda. HealthRight is one of very few global health non-governmental organizations (NGOs) with the ability to deliver integrated health solutions that address mental health for the most vulnerable populations. They support holistic health programming in Burundi, Kenya, Nepal, Uganda, Ukraine, the United States and Vietnam. We’ll be producing work for a few of their markets as they continue to grow.
We don’t usually do this much in this space, but I’m encouraging anyone who supports us to support this GoFundMe created by our friend, Gloucester, MA author and book dealer, Greg Gibson to help educate about gun violence and its long-lasting effect on survivors. We volunteered our time to create the video for the campaign and the PSA (created by filmmaker Mark Davis) can be viewed here. Please donate if you can and also check out Everytown.org.
The Intercept presented us with a unique opportunity to work up close and personal with Senator Bernie Sanders and renowned author and activist, Naomi Klein this weekend at the Sanders Institute’s The Gathering in Burlington, Vermont. It was very compelling to hear Mr. Sanders and Ms. Klein discuss the affect of climate change on our changing world among other pressing topics. Also had an opportunity to chat with filmmaker Avi Lewis (husband to Ms. Klein). Quite an inspiring group of folks to work with!
We got a chance to produce some work for The Washington Post in a report on Ranked Choice Voting in Maine. We followed Jared Golden in Bangor, Maine as he toured the streets and chatted with small business owners and constituents. Caroline Losneck conducted the interviews as we chatted with residents of the area as well as Mr. Golden himself.
We had a blast producing this campaign video for Justin Chenette and his campaign to continue as Senator representing the communities of Saco, Old Orchard Beach, Hollis, Limington, & Buxton Maine. Chenette, 26, is the youngest member of the State Senate. In 2012, Chenette made history by becoming the nation’s youngest openly gay legislator and Maine’s youngest lawmaker at age 21.
Very excited to premiere our new film, Good News, at the 2018 Camden International Film Festival. The film has been a year in the making and was co-produced and directed with frequent TLM collaborator, Caroline Losneck. It’s a statement on evolving neighborhoods and what happens when change sweeps through a city. We hope you’ll check it out.
