Giving Back


I feel it’s important to give back and to use media in a positive way. A good example is this project for the Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation.

This PSA / fundraising video combines still images with music as a multimedia slide show, with chapter heading titles adding counterpoint to the imagery.  Supporting  research and the development of a cure, it has been shown to open major medical conferences in Washington DC, Marrakesh, Morocco and Paris, with excellent response, exceeding the hopes and goals of the organization.

I first met this young woman in the Intensive Care Unit, And today, Georgia has gone on to living an active, vibrant life. She was an essential contributor to our project along with a brave group of children battling various forms of Cancer, several of  them since birth, what a profound experience it was to work with these young heros.

The campaign, has been an extraordinary success, with a major increase of revenue for the organization, as well as making a real difference in people’s lives.

Happy to Be Alive

The weather has been odd, and for a while it seemed we’d miss the glorious days of ‘indian summer’. Fortunately, we’ve been given a gift, perfect days for doing anything outdoors. I’m just back from a mountain hike which yielded this image of the Cascade Mountain Range, during one of our video shoots. Being there made me so happy to be alive, and thankful for the gift.

A Lovely Surprise

While taking a work-break outside my studio I looked down and noticed that Wild Strawberries had popped up today, these are volunteers, transported and planted by birds. Now the (very smart) birds will come back to eat and enjoy them – completely native here in the Pacific Northwest.

A lovely, amazing surprise.

Online Video: The Story Of A Happy Roof

Here in the Pacific Northwest we have trees, lots of trees, and roofs bear the burden of all those pine needles and moss.

A local company, Debris Free Seattle uses eco-friendly products in their green business, clearing the way for a roof to have a long life, saving substantial money along the way. In this video, Brian Frankowski, the owner of DBS shares a bit of his extensive knowledge on the subject.

Part of a continuing series on small businesses with big heart.
