We decided to take a Saturday drive through McDowell to visit with my second family. Ed got to meet baby August and Alan played us his new banjitar. Kudzu has covered nearly everything and more buildings have collapsed. I love that county and the people […]
Two months ago I stumbled onto Story & Heart on Twitter. It was marketed (very quietly) as a story-driven stock footage site. As a filmmaker and journalist, who is constantly documenting life, I was thrilled. The idea that I could potentially make money off of work […]
I traveled to Gunnison County, Colo., to make this video about two towns that had taken different paths since medicinal marijuana was legalized in 2000 and recreational marijuana sales began this year. One, Crested Butte, has embraced the sale of retail and medicinal marijuana; the […]

Today is West Virginia’s 151st year of statehood. While most Americans don’t celebrate their native land’s statehood, we West Virginians do. We’re proud and weird people. Last year, the Hollow team and I launched this baby into the world. It says everything I want to say […]

My first day in Tirana was fascinating. We were lucky enough to spend the morning with Iris Elezi, of the Albanian Cinema Project, who introduced us to Maks Velo, an artist who was punished and imprisoned for his work during the communist dictatorship. We were […]
Early this morning we took the ferry from Tarbert to Uig. We had a “proper” Scottish breakfast on the ferry. I had eggs, beans, mushrooms, potatoes and toast, while Kerrin opted for the six types of meat (including black pudding, YUCK) that they offered. Last night […]
I really can’t even begin to explain the diversity of landscape we have been able to see in the past week. We have taken thousands of photos, videos and sounds and every corner we turn are tempted to collect more. Scotland is gorgeous but the […]
We took a ferry over from Ullapool (awesome fishing town) to Stornoway today. We spent some time with the local bowling club (Kerrin even gave it a whirl) and then filmed at a local butcher shop about the island’s famous “black pudding.” (filming for humanity). […]
