Film Division

At the beginning of documentary films, there is traditionally an animation or short film that contains the studio’s trademark, logo, and theme, which is known as a bumper. This is ours. It explains exactly what we’re trying to do, with our filmmaking work: bring light to what is right. Our storytelling – no matter what form it takes – always has the goal to uplift and to inspire. We started out by capturing classical and jazz performances of the highest caliber, knowing that music is food for the soul. Then we moved on, using our storyteller’s lens to shine a light on social justice issues, and more recently we’ve helped our viewers understand and implement green features in their lives, and incorporate the wisdom of Celtic spirituality. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then how priceless is a talking picture?

What Green Can Be – Official Selection Sedona Film Fest
We have all heard the phrase… reduce, repurpose, reuse, recycle. Those are the four R's of being green. But it's hard to know your impact or whether you're having one. This little film aims to help, tracing the history of greens and highlighting the beautiful results that can occur when we decide together to go green. What Green Can Be... one little town, one big idea.
Music Video – Rough Justice
A call to action to break negative cycles, and a tale of hope, and caring... We can do better, because kids learn what they live, we must have something better to give.
Music Video – Such A Crime
A kickoff song for a "Second Saturdays for Soup Kitchens" campaign undertaken by The Elfenworks Foundation a few years ago, and still relevant today.

Malatesta’s Carnival of Blood
Yes it’s back — that ’70s horror cult classic Malatesta’s Carnival of Blood!

Interest in many of the stars, especially Hervé de Villachaize, has kept interest in the film alive.
