Filmmaker David Bond thinks Mother Nature needs a helping hand. His children are fascinated by screens but are strangers to the natural world. Childhood is different to when he grew up - so many distractions compete for children’s time and attention. David appoints himself the Marketing Director for Nature and, with the help of marketing experts, he sets out to convince apathetic consumers, and his family, of the benefits of this amazing, free, wonder product. His journey takes him across the world as he attempts to untangle the complex web of agendas, fears, policies and habits that disconnect him and his family from the natural environment. Project Wild Thing is an ambitious, feature-length, stunt documentary for international theatrical, TV, film festivals and public screenings. ‘Payback’ Documentary, Based on Margaret Atwood’s Book.

Cargo Bike Documentary. LESS CAR MORE GO: the cargo bike documentary by Liz Canning. The tireless LESS CAR MORE GO Co-Directors have emboldened me to post...

We could make that happen with a GoPro camera mounted on a flying drone, such as the GoPro HERO3: Silver Edition Camera & Phantom Quadcopter with GoPro Mount Kit. We would also need--at lease initially--to hire an operator to make sure we captured what we desired and learned how to best use it. The equipment could be shared amongst Co-Directors within certain limits and always under the watch of a trained operator. Watch the amazing things it can do here.

The first of the four new films to be released will be "Battered Bastards of Baseball," about a defunct minor league baseball team.
