This summer we've been capturing singer/songwriter Ben Taylor as he releases his latest album "Listening." We filmed a series of "day in the life" moments as well as acoustic performances that have been released over the past few weeks, and will continue being released for the next month. We're thrilled that Grammys.com had the exclusive "first look" feature of one of the acoustic songs we filmed. Read more about it here:

Island Grown Schools is a farm-to-school program on Martha's Vineyard. They are helping to raise a new generation of Vineyarders who are connected to local farms and farmers, empowered to make healthy eating choices, informed about the food system, and engaged in growing food for themselves, their families and community. For over a year, we followed the program. We filmed students putting gardens in at their schools, teachers making curriculum connections, and schools acting to get local food served for the first time in their cafeterias. Below are two versions of the documentary - a 3 min 30 sec trailer and an 18 min version. To learn more about Island Grown Schools, visit their website at http://www.islandgrown.org

We are excited to announce the release of our feature length music documentary, "Kate Taylor: Tunes from the Tipi and Other Songs from Home"!
As part of one of the most famous musical families in America, “Sister Kate” Taylor has had a musical career uniquely her own.
After recording 3 albums and going out on nation-wide tours in the 70’s, Kate Taylor settled into a quieter home life on Martha’s Vineyard. After visiting a friend’s tipi, Kate set out to make a tipi of her own, where she and her husband Charlie Witham and their growing family lived for several summers. While she had a hiatus from touring and recording, she never stopped singing and she and Charlie continued to write songs.
This documentary is an exploration of life on Martha’s Vineyard through the songs they wrote over a span of decades of living and raising a family there. In “Tunes from the Tipi and other Songs from Home”, Kate shares her stories of a simpler world viewed through the flaps of a tipi canvas.
