Every success we have in pop culture and creativity is directly translated back into the quality of work we can deliver to our clients.

BARBECUE: A TEXAS LOVE STORY

An oldie but goodie... how can you possibly compare to traversing Texas for thousands of miles to make a documentary film about everything barbecue.

As the DVD box says: No other place in the world looks, smells or tastes quite like Texas. Tour the Lone Star State for an unbelievable look at its colorful people and their fasciation and obsession with barbecue.  This EMMY-nominated Electro-Fish film narrated by Governor Ann Richards enjoys a shelf life comparable to the cuisine it highlights.  Even after its 10th anniversary, it continues to be screened around the world.

2004 Electro-Fish Film.  SXSW Premiere. EMMY-Nomination - Outstanding Achievement in Documentary, Cultural.  Learn more about the perpetual ramifications of this film here.

GHOST TOWN: 24 HOURS IN TERLINGUA

Guns, the family jewels in a mason jar, and living in a bus without an engine…  life couldn’t be better for the real-life offbeat citizens of Texas’ Terlingua Ghost Town.  Once an epicenter for mining, the remote desert town is a literal shell of its former self.  Naturally, it’s the final stop for those fleeing modern society and seeking ultimate freedom of personal expression.  Join the residents of Terlingua for just 24 hours, and they’ll not only make you laugh; they’ll make you wonder who’s right about this thing we call “life."  Narrated by James McMurtry.

In loving memory of everyone's friend, Glenn Felts.  2005 Electro-Fish Film.  EMMY Award - Outstanding Achievement in Documentary, Cultural.  Learn more about the history of the project here.  Or buy a DVD.
