“What is this place worth in oil? Where do we want to steer our civilization? What do we want left when we’re done? — Craig Childs, The Story of Place
Protect Your Canyon Lands Today: http://grandcanyontrust.nonprofitsoapbox.com/protectbearsears
Canyonlands National Park, and the lands that border it are part of a complex tale of political horse-trading, pressures for resource extraction and recreational opportunities. Above all, this land is the true Wild West, a rugged and vastly untouched landscape, a place where we can find our true human spirit.
The Story of Place is a short film that takes us deep into the unprotected territory of the Greater Canyonlands region alongside Craig Childs, Ace Kvale and Jim Enote, who narrate the story of this grand landscape, how it has shaped each and every one of us. This region of southeastern Utah is a veritable well of human spirit, an endless supply of recreation, solitude, wonder and history. This place and its story are irreplaceable. This land is worth protecting.

I created a short animation to accompany an interview with the wonderful Singer/songwriter Thao Nguyen for The California Sunday Magazine californiasunday.com/ and Google Play. Thao speaks on learning to play guitar at her mom’s Laundromat, her rise to success, and what she loves about San Francisco in California Inspires Me, a Google Play x California Sunday Magazine collaboration.
A simple, featherweight headset, a 10' x 10' x 10' white room, and $600,000 worth of projector and computer equipment, combined with the smarts of the folks at Eon Reality, results in one insanely real experience. For more info visit http://labs.ideo.com
