First Descents Documentary

My neighbor got cancer it sucks, a brain tumor. I told her to watch a documentary I did about First Descents, an adventure camp for young adults dealing with cancer. She went. She had fun. She learned to kayak. She met a ton of other folks dealing with cancer. Check out a clip of the doc I did about First Descents here:

The Cooling Board--- (from the archives)

The Cooling Board is a short film about my grandpa Roy and the family funeral business. This film was curated by Lissa Gibbs into a show called "A Whole Lot of Nothing Going On: Images from Rural America" at the The Pacific Film Archives in Berkley, California in 1995. This film also won Best Documentary Film at the Utah Short Film and Video Festival in 1994. It is a slow respectful look at my dear old grandpa.
