Water is Everything

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.

 

Boats Against the Current Closing in on the Finish Line

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.
