OUR LATEST WORK
ESPN FILMS / Fivethirtyeight.com - THE COLLECTORS - Cannabis Chemist
Most Americans live in a state where medical marijuana, in some form, is legal. But all marijuana isn’t the same. Different plants have different chemical compositions, and different compositions are better at treating different diseases. Chris Hudalla studies cannabis to help home growers treat seizures, multiple sclerosis, migraines and other illnesses. The latest film in ESPN Films and FiveThirtyEight’s series “The Collectors” is “Cannabis Chemist,” directed by Jamie Schutz & executive produced by Steven Cantor. - via fivethirtyeight.com
Spike Lee's Lil' Joints: Of The Father And Of The Son
This ESPN short film is the latest chapter in a compelling family saga – the tale of sixty-two year old David Robinson, the youngest child of civil rights hero Jackie Robinson, and the life he has built as a farmer in Africa. Robinson has spent the last 30 years assimilating entirely into African culture; raising a family thousands of miles from the Brooklyn streets where his father built a legend, the lily-white suburbs of Connecticut where he was raised and the upscale American businesses that serve his product and fuel his mission – using the world’s second-most-valuable natural resource to spur social change and honor his father’s legacy. - via espn.com
30 for 30 Short: Spyball
President Franklin Delano Roosevelt once told the head of the Office of Strategic Services (precursor to the CIA), “Give my regards to the catcher.” The catcher was Moe Berg, who spent 15 seasons in the majors before taking up espionage for the government. Spyball tells the extraordinary story of Berg, a linguist/Ivy-educated lawyer/.243 lifetime hitter, who’s surreptitious filming of Tokyo during a 1934 baseball tour helped develop strategies for the eventual bombing of the city during World War II, and his cloak-and-dagger mind games involving a German scientist helped prove that the Nazis were failing in their attempts to develop an atomic bomb. - via grantland.com
