      • Plato's Allegory of the Cave: An adaptation in clay

        This started out as an introduction to a scene in a feature length documentary. It has now taken on a bit of a life of it's own, showing in 100 or so festivals and it has won j10 or so festival awards. The clay artist was Jon Grigsby, and almost all of the 4,000 or so photos that make up the animation were lit by candlelight. Jon of course did all of the hard work.

          "The best thing we can do for Veterans Day is to pledge: 'No more war veterans.'" Howard Zinn Hello friends. I want to share the work of Veterans Expeditions with you. They are doing incredible work reaching out to our huge veteran community as they come home. Through wilderness expeditions they are connecting veterans and offering a challenging and ultimately a very healing experience. We have approximately 2.3 million veterans in this country, more are coming home every day and they are coming home to troubling times. Regardless of what you think of the wars, these are our people and they deserve recognition and respect for their service. If you missed it at Adventure Film, here is the latest short film we created for them. Thank you to all that helped including: Tres Altman, Javier Manzano, Dustin Booth , Anders Carlson, Karuna Eberl, Jack Spivak, Eric Noll, Sierra Designs, Leave No Trace, Sara Close, too many to list. And most of all, thanks to all of the veterans on the climb that were willing to open up and share your stories with me.
