The Film "This Land" (2020) is a short documentary that digs into conversations about public lands, what it means to be a conservationist, and who is invited to the conversation. We were able to host over 50 screenings, create a curriculum and make a full website for the film. Check out the full Vimeo nominated "Best of the Year" and Staff Pick here.
The Trail Ahead (2021) is a podcast and media series co-hosted by Faith E. Briggs and Addie Thompson. Because of our belief in the importance of visual representation, we create short video profiles of each guest to accompany each episode. Some examples are below.
