We felt compelled to respond to the turmoil in our lives, in our community and in our world. In 2019 we began filming stories of local heroes of all ages here in upstate NY. This is a labor of love. We want to document and share the way they courageously tackle social, political and environmental issues. They are making history. They go beyond storytelling. We learn from them. They inspire us.

As he opens his arms he is inviting you to communicate. To go out on a limb with us. Please tell us what you are doing, what you want to know and what you think of our work. Let’s educate and inspire each other to get out there and be a force for good. Let’s make history.
