Citizens Speak Out Against Attack on Public Lands
When the Trump administration commanded U.S. Interior Department Secretary Ryan Zinke to review 27 national monuments in order to shrink, or even eliminate their designations, story producer Keith Mulvihill and I spoke to the compassionate members of the Next Coalition 100 about their connections to public lands.
What we created was a collection of four intimate portraits (see below) of people's connection with public lands. I handled all preproduction and hired the crew including Director of Photography Trent Watts, who shot the interviews. I was responsible for postproduction, working with video editor John Asterita on the final product. I researched, licensed, commissioned and shot imagery for the final videos.
