1. "American Value: Herb Dishman, China, TX" is the first episode of a short documentary series that investigates our cultural fascination with vanishing traditions. This episode tells the story of a Texas Rice farmer and his decision to carry on his family's tradition of fatherhood and working the land. Herb's story complicates the cultural stereotype of the American farmer through highlighting a journey that took him away from home and around the world, ultimately leading him to realize that his true calling is being back where his journey began.

  2. Chef Susur Lee has captivated critics and guests alike with his distinct culinary fusion of East and West, old and new. Now, several restaurants, cities, and TV appearances later, Susur's accomplishments are matched only by his humility. His excitement towards food is unparalleled and unjaded, and he maintains a hands-on presence at his three restaurants: Lee and Bent in Toronto, and Chinois in Singapore.

  3. This short profile film on Mike Wood is a personal project. Mike has been wood caving for over 35 years. Many of his pieces can be seen at the Elmwood Zoo in Norristown PA. Sometimes you don't have to go to far to find great histories, Mike lives very close to my house in Norristown and shooting this film was such a great experience and a great way to make a new friend in my neighborhood.

  5. A rogue with an eye for salvage - and the ladies - Ray: A Life Underwater is an affectionate portrait of one man's deep sea diving career, told through his extraordinary collection of marine artefacts.

    Like a modern-day pirate, 75-year-old Ray Ives has been scouring the seabed for treasure his whole life.

    The former commercial diver has plundered the deep for over fifty years, bringing to the surface anything that glittered -- even gold.

    In a shipping container near the water, Ray tends his museum of cannon, bottles, bells, swords, portholes and diving gear.

    He even still takes to the water in a 1900s diving suit.

    Ray can be found most days at his museum at Yacht Haven Quay, Plymouth.
