          This is the short version of our film for PBS. We are now within 6 months of being able to complete this effort. Our film will raise awareness of this iconic American species -powerful symbol of the Tallgrass prairie - which is itself an essentially American landform feature. Prairies and Prairie chickens are quite interdependent upon each other. One without the other, leaves a missing gap. The definition of a mutualistic symbiotic relationship is the two partners function to benefit each other. While Greater Prairie Chickens are not totally obligate to the prairies , there is no question that if there is a balance of about 70% native grasslands to 30% agricultural lands then prairie chickens should be thriving in the area. The "IF" comes in when there is just not enough land to sustain a population. Our understanding of this is based upon Dr. John Toepfer's ground breaking work in Minnesota. If no one does anything to reverse the trend lines, this species will go extinct. The Good News is that at this moment we may have nearly a Million birds to work with. Unlike so many other desperate situations, we have time, numbers, great people working on these birds and there is an interest in expanding native grasslands again. Sit back, relax and enjoy this beautiful bird in its natural environment. Then help us get this film finished, please.

            Meadowlark Lino Block Carve and Proof 1 Minute 36 Seconds This video depicts the process of carving and proofing a lino block print. I draw the design directly onto the block. Using simple carving tools I cut out the parts that I want to be light. The result is an image where the uncarved parts are printed. I roll out a water-based ink onto the plate and print a “proof” to see what the image looks like.

                    Ghosts of the Prairie is an exploration of the abandonment and absence of the plains. It was shot over the winter months of 2014-2015 in several locations around the Pawnee National Grassland and the area around Beaver Oklahoma. It tells the story of the heartbreak and tragedy in the lives of those who lived during the dust bowl era. The towns and homes which were once occupied now sit abandoned in the vast landscape of the prairie. As we shot this film, we wondered, What were were these places once like? Who were the people who made their lives here? We shot in harsh conditions, many nights well below freezing with strong winds of 40+ miles per hour. We were yelled at, chased, at some locations trying to get shots. Looking back at this experience, I ask myself, was it worth it? Every second.
