We created two films for Mountain Sun Community School in Brevard, NC. Our goal with the first film was to create a window into the essence of school's holistic and joyful philosophy of "learning, stretching and challenging discovery".
The 4-minute film includes interviews from students, teachers, and parents and dives deeper into the tenets of the school and its impact on its students and the greater community.
We Are Mountain Sun
We Come From Mountain Sun
Owner Eatherley Schultz wanted to create a video with pretty simple wishes: "quick, upbeat, and shows our team's process." We'll never turn away the opportunity to film nice folks foraging on a farm and creating awesome floral designs. This film is filled with beauty!
Sarah Siskind and Sunliner : "Not Enough"
Sarah Siskind approached us with a concept for a music video to coincide with her release of "Not Enough". Filmed at The Sunset Motel in Brevard, NC, the video features Sarah and her husband Travis Book. With gorgeous lighting design by the indispensable TC Webb.
Maine Beer Co.
Do what's right. As one of our country's most respected craft brewers, Maine Beer Company extends their motto to do what is right through the brewing process, company culture, and its philanthropic efforts.
Our three-part video series takes us into the brewery and into the minds of Dan and Dave, founders of Maine Beer Company in Freeport, Maine.
Bresca & the Honey Bee
The narrative hooked us instantly: after giving birth to her first child, a James Beard Award-nominated chef decides to close her very popular Portland-based restaurant in order to open up a simple snack shack on the banks of a rustic centuries-old swimming hole. Krista Kern-Desjarlais opens up to us about this life-changing decision and its impact on her family and the community.
Rêve Cycling Studio
Rêve founder Stephanie Cabot asked us to create a short film that would highlight the spirit of Reve and its relationship to the greater Portland, Maine community. She wanted the film to feel familiar to current Reve-ers and inspirational to new ones.
Jesse James DeConto: This Littler Light
We created this short for Durham, NC-based musician and writer Jesse James DeConto in conjunction with the release of his 2014 memoir. The music video for his rendition of the old hymn This Little Light of Mine, a one-take performance filmed in a slow tracking shot, served as the backbone of the video, while Jesse and a few respected colleagues provide commentary on the themes and goals of the memoir.
Pastor Chris Breslin wanted the mission statement of the church to be the foundation of the film. We discovered that the most honest-sounding voice talents were some of the church's children. Filmed in 7 locations all over the Triangle region of North Carolina, the final product is a colorful vision of the present and future of the Gathering Church.
Daisies & Pearls
Maine creative entrepreneur Sarah Goodwin contacted us about creating a brand video for her event design and planning company, Daisies & Pearls. We layered b-roll from Sarah's life (design work, dogs and family, entertaining friends) over her explanation of inspiration and the client experience. This one was fun!
