        A video essay about my parents, a potter and a weaver, who move to rural Arkansas, build a house, and make art. Giving advice to artists, my dad said, “If you have something that you have to say, you’re going to do it. If you want to get distracted by other things, then you will. You have to be passionate enough and crazy enough about what you want to do in an existential kind of way to where you will do without other things. I mean, if other material objects or a certain lifestyle or a certain materialistic state, if those are more important to you than the creative work, then you’re not going to become an artist.”

Beyond Off Grid is a documentary film and educational media project that seeks to inspire and equip people to reduce their dependence on the modern economy by going back to the old paths of productive households and community interdependence. The modern economy and way of living, with all of its conveniences and comforts, is not resilient to calamity, and often distracts from true spiritual blessings. True freedom is found by seeking the old paths. By exposing the weaknesses of the modern financial, transportation, and food production systems, and bringing to light the solutions that are available by learning from the past and wisely applying technology, this film seeks to inspire folks to a greater degree of self-sufficiency while trusting in God. Our ongoing webinar series provides enlightening educational content in the areas of understanding current economic and social trends, learning the importance and methods of reducing dependence on the modern economy, how to gain practical skills such as building community, gardening, raising animals, natural building methods, preparedness and how to make wise choices that result in a more fulfilling life.

                  A documentary I just finished. I'm looking for interest in doing a much higher resolution version for festivals and broadcast that would not only interview subjects, but digitize their old photos and objects from that time. I have contacts for excellent subjects. Description: The Hippies of the 60s and 70s created a social revolution that impacted everything from recycling to relationships, from tofu to what was taboo. They made their mark from the halls of justice, to the Halloween costumes you can buy for your kid ironically, at your local drug store. Many hippies were weekend hippies who wore the costume and went back to work on Monday. A few hippies however totally changed their lives and dropped out of normal society altogether. Some of these hippies then had kids. These kids were not hippies like their parents. They did not decide to drop out. They were born dropped out. In 2008 six of these children of hippies, now in ther 30s and 40s, were tracked down as part of a thesis project in experimental documentary video. They were asked to answer the same set of questions, while recording themselves using a video camera. The interviews are from an experiment in new interfaces for documentary video as part of a 2008 Masters Thesis at the Interactive Telecommunications Program at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts, also by Caleb Clark.

                    On the evening of May 13, 2011, the Oakland Standard hosted Hay Fever, an event about Californians' relationship with the land. The concept for the event, and most of the presenters, hailed from Nevada City, California, an old mining town in the Sierra Nevada foothills that many consider the heart of the contemporary back-to-the-land movement.
