One hundred years ago today, a new literary voice was released on the world — one that would come to define a generation. The debut novel sold out its first printing of 3,000 copies in just three days and would go on to sell a total of 41,075 copies
I was honored to put this animated short together for Safe Water Network:
With more than 25% of the world still in need of safe water, the Paul Newman co-founded not-for-profit helps communities own and manage Safe Water Enterprises. Leveraging the power of the sun, and the expertise of government, the private sector, and the local level, Safe Water Network coordinates and connects key stakeholders in Ghana and India, proving at scale that such an approach can make a significant contribution to solving the global water crisis.
This year I spent a lot of time making a series of videos for the Paul Newman not-for-profit, Safe Water Network. It’s hard to believe that 25% of the world’s population still doesn’t have safe water to drink. This organization is helping communities help themselves by giving them the tools and equipment necessary to own and manage small water enterprises. This short video made by my company, Against the Grain communications helps tell their story.
We’re very close to wrapping up shooting, three years in the making! Who would have imagined that this project would go on that long. With much still to be done before we can truly call it a wrap, we now have a 90-minute rough cut that we’re extremely excited about.
Next week we head up to Vermont for the last road trip.
