About

OUR MISSION: To share stories that educate and inspire people of all ages.

The brave (crazy?) guy at the top of the tree in our logo is my dad, George ‘Jim’ Wilber. It is inspired by a photo of him taken at work in the 1960s. He served in the US Navy during WW2. He started his own business- Concord Tree Service- in 1951. In the 1970s he won downhill skiing competitions with a leather wine flask tied around his waist. Yep. Quite a risk-taker!

Following in his footsteps-we took a surefooted leap into the world of filmmaking in 2019. Over 20 amazing stories are posted in the Interview Archive on the navigation bar. A public archive such as this is unique in the world of documentary filmmaking. 90% of most interviews are discarded in the editing process. Carefully curated parts of these interviews are incorporated in our documentary films.

In April of 2023 we entered our first film festival-the Albany Film Festival sponsored by the New York Writers Institute at the University at Albany, NY. (www.nywritersinstitute.org). That film ‘Struggle. Triumph. Repeat…’ is a chronicle of over 60 years of civil rights activism in the capital district of New York. It is ‘Part 1’ of our 3 part series. We won Best Short DocumentaryFilm.

We are now editing interviews with veterans of the war in Vietnam (Part 2). Simmering on the back burner are stories of people who helped make this neck of the woods a better place to live (Part 3).

We invite you to not only follow us in our storytelling quest, but to share this adventure with us. Do you have a story to share with the world? Do you have comments, questions, suggestions or concerns? If so- use our ‘contact’ tab or call Producer/Director Chris Howard at 518-728-4652. Excelsior!
