Happy New Year, Friends!

We are excited to be back up and running, and are supercharged to forge ahead on some new work! First stop: Park City, Utah for not just one festival, but two! THE 2016 SUNDANCE FILM FESTIVAL will premiere the documentary Josh spent a good part of 2015 filming for director Stephanie Soechtig, “Under the Gun”. From the Sundance catalog: “The Sandy Hook massacre was considered a watershed moment in the national debate on gun control, but the body count at the hands of gun violence has only increased. Through the lens of the victims’ families, as well as pro-gun advocates, we examine why our politicians have failed to act.” Josh is proud to have contributed his time and talent to this important project.

Also at Sundance is a second film Josh lensed, this one for director Jessica Yu, entitled “ForEveryone.Net” about Tim Burners-Lee, the creator of the World Wide Web.

And at SLAMDANCE this year will be yet another film on which Josh lent his DP skills: “Los Punks: We Are All We Have” for director Angela Boatwright. The intimate and honest documentary zooms in on the LA punk scene’s local promoters, musicians and devout fans who find meaning in the thriving punk-rock scene of South Central and East Los Angeles. If you’re in Park City this January, come find us!

In other news, we raised $15,000 to do the next short film in our Mindfulness series, with the intention to address ANXIETY through conversations with middle school kids. If you are interested in the work, please contact us as we are actively looking for partners to help us finance this project.

Yes, it’s to be a great year. Peace.
