Died Without Issue is the working title of a documentary about French ancestors of mine who came to the Georgia Sea Islands during the French and American Revolutions. The film explores the twin concepts of legacy and making amends in a part of the country that is still on everyone’s minds today. Seattle filmmaker Rustin Thompson and I were midway through the film when COVID hit. We’ll be back in production in the Fall of 2021.

Stuffed is a film about the art and craft of taxidermy, but it’s also about a group of taxidermists who strive to correct their often mischaracterized profession. They’re passionate environmental advocates and artists, with a deep understanding of the particularities of the creatures we all want to protect.

Wings of the Sea: A series of short animated adorableness from Karen Lewis, and conceived by myself and the late Wendy Jackson Hall. The thinking was that the alcid family (puffins, guillemots, murres, auklets) get short shrift when it comes to educational and entertaining animal films. Most of the world has a much better chance of seeing an alcid in the wild than a penguin, and alcids can swim deep AND fly (except for the extinct Great Auk). So there!
