GLADESMEN: The Last of the Sawgrass Cowboys is an award-winning, feature-length documentary about the federal government’s ban on Florida’s iconic airboats in much of the Everglades. The measure is part of the world's largest effort to repair a damaged ecosystem, a vast river of grass that has been ravaged by more than a century of development, pollution, and other environmental degradation. The outcome will determine the future of the region's water supply, and its ability to withstand rising sea levels. It may also lead to the demise of the Gladesmen. The film won the Knight Foundation's Made in Miami Award at the 2018 Miami Film Festival. Watch the full film here.

LOBSTER WAR: The Fight Over the World's Richest Fishing Grounds is a feature-length film about a climate-fueled conflict between the United States and Canada over waters that both countries have claimed since the end of the Revolutionary War. The disputed 277 square miles of sea known as the Gray Zone were traditionally fished by US lobstermen. But as the Gulf of Maine has warmed faster than nearly any other body of water on the planet, the area’s previously modest lobster population has surged. As a result, Canadians have begun to assert their sovereignty, warring with the Americans to claim the bounty. The film premiered at the 2018 International Maritime Film Festival, where a jury selected it as the runner-up for the grand prize for Best Feature Film. It has since been picked up by about a dozen film festivals, including the 2018 Mystic Film Festival, where it won an award for Best New England Film.
 
SACRED COD: The Fight to Save America's Oldest Fishery is a feature-length documentary that look at the collapse of the historic cod population in New England, delving into the role of overfishing, the impact of climate change, the effect of government policies on fishermen and the fish, and the prospect of a region built on cod having no cod left to harvest. The film premiered at the Camden International Film Festival and was broadcast on the Discovery Channel on April 13, 2017.
    UNDAUNTED: Chasing History at the Boston Marathon is a feature film about the comeback of one unique runner as well as a city that came together to rally against terror: At 2:49 p.m. on April 15, 2013, Juli Windsor was less than a mile away from completing a lifelong quest to become the first dwarf to finish the Boston Marathon. The bombings that day transformed her triumph into horror. Juli and thousands of runners were turned back before crossing the finish line. She vowed to run again the next year. It would be a chance at redemption as much as making history. The film was broadcast on BBC World News and the Discovery Life Channel in the spring of 2015.


25.7: In Twice the Steps is a short film about Juli Windsor, who long dreamed of being the first little person to run the Boston Marathon, and how her quest ended in a way she would have never expected. The film was broadcast on Pivot on the first anniversary of the attack in Boston.
