It started as a private correspondence between two makers. What emerged was a powerful practice for the not-lost art of friendship.
On the verge of major milestones two storytellers--author/illustrator Tim Manley and filmmaker Jen Lee--began a modern correspondence that catches the quiet moments, their time in the spotlight and the parts of the journey that fall somewhere in between. It's a project that bears witness and ultimately changes them as they push their personal and artistic boundaries--finding strength and solace in the company of each other.

Building online communities to create local communities.
We're using our ability to find each other online to help us find kindreds closer to home.
Regional groups give makers a place to organize in-person gatherings:
The Gatherers is a place for community gatherers worldwide to share wisdom and inspiration for building local creative communities and events.
Movies for Makers is a web show for artists and makers who want to take the first step to learn how to make videos by themselves for their creative businesses.
Each episode is a long-form video-making class (recorded live) and especially for artists and makers. Our focus is on simplicity, working with minimal gear and learning how to do it yourself.
