Into the Lantern opens at Maine Maritime Museum

In late winter 2016, a proposal came our way to create video for an immersive installation that would recreate the experience of being inside the eastern light at Two Lights in Cape Elizabeth, Maine.

The permanent exhibit features a panoramic timelapse we created from the window of the eastern light, two documentary shorts, Beyond the Harbor (about the Portland Pilots) and Keeper (a brief history of lighthouse keeping) as well as three lovely audio stories from our own, Caroline Losneck.

It was a night to be remembered and certainly amazing to see it all come together. We really enjoyed the experience of creating content for a museum and are excited to hear the response to this permanent part of the Maine Maritime Museum. So go check out, Into the Lantern, soon!


Partnership for a Healthier America

It’s been awhile since we posted, but we’re looking forward to seeing the release of new work we created in collaboration with ThreeTwelve Media on a series of videos for the nonprofit, Partnership for a Healthier America. PHA brings together public, private and nonprofit leaders to broker meaningful commitments and develop strategies to end childhood obesity. First Lady, Michelle Obama is their honorary chair. We couldn’t be more excited to be involved with the cause.

Stanford: SEED

We’re excited to have formed a working collaboration with Stanford University’s SEED program. We’re producing content for their program which assists individuals in developing economies with building infrastructure for new businesses.

Meeting Bill Buckner

Bill Buckner with Christoph Gelfand

Christoph was thrilled to get a chance to meet childhood hero, Bill Buckner at Hadlock Field in Portland, Maine. Buckner, a tremendous ballplayer for many teams (including the Red Sox), was the subject of our lauded 2006 film, Chasing Buckner. Buckner was kind enough years ago to watch the film and send some positive feedback.

Into the Lantern


We’re thrilled to be setting out on an epic new journey, creating content and concepts for Maine Maritime Museum‘s 2017 permanent installation, Into the Lantern. The museum will be expanding their building and creating a working replica of the east lamp (using the original lens) at Two Lights in Cape Elizabeth, Maine. We don’t want to give too much else away, but are excited about all the material we’ll be making in the coming months. Caroline Losneck will be collecting audio for some additional amazing sound creations that will comprise Into the Lantern. Having created a number of other immersive audio/video installations for museums and events, we’re excited to expand upon our ideas for this project! #intothelantern

Keyround: a better key ring

We were psyched to produce  new video work for Portland, Maine- based company Zootility Tools on a new campaign for their take on the key ring, called Keyround. It’s a really well-crafted, no-fuss key ring. We’re always psyched to take a walk through their shop to check out what’s on tap next- and there’s some really cool stuff.



The Old Lady and the Piano

Last year we did some coverage of the Home/Resilience installation at the Augusta Colonial Theater. In digging through the footage we forgot about this gem of Joyce Fessenden. Joyce is a sweet pianist seen here playing some welcoming tunes in the gorgeous Colonial lobby. She used to play piano at the St. Mark’s Home for Women, the focus of Home/Resilience. Ain’t she sweet?

True/False Film Fest

True/FalseIt’s been awhile since we added to the blog, but we’re back! Just got back from an amazing trip down to Columbia, Missouri to see the True/False Film Festival. It was an amazing melange of film, music, food, and merriment. We didn’t screen this year, but we hope to return with a film at some point soon. If you haven’t been, we highly recommend the event.

Big Sky Documentary Film Festival

Big Sky Documentary Film FestivalWe are so excited to screen our film, Diver (made in conjunction with Caroline Losneck), at the esteemed Big Sky Documentary Film Festival in Missoula, Montana. This is a great venue for nonfiction films and we are honored to be a part of it. If you haven’t seen Diver yet, you can watch the shorter version, Diving for Scallops, which was a NYTimes Op doc in August,2015.

Larry Lessig: The Democrats Have Changed the Rules

Larry Lessig has been working tirelessly to be included in the Democratic debates for the 2016 Presidential election. We did this short piece to help tell the story of why he has to suspend his campaign. Here’s to hoping they change the rules again to allow him to speak.
