Fat Head
2009 documentary
While most people saw the documentary Super Size Me as an expose of the fast food industry, comedian and former health writer Tom Naughton saw it as a dare: He'd show that you could lose weight on a diet of burgers and fries.

Plastic: The Real Sea Monster
2012 science
Plastic floats. This is where our story begins. Millions of tons enter the ocean every year, pouring out from rivers and shores, ships and platforms. The worlds scientists have studied the phenomenon and come to alarming results. Plastic contains synthetic hormones that are released when plastic breaks down into tiny particles through wind, waves and exposure to the sun. Once in seawater, plastic absorbs toxic substances known as POPs, or persistent organic pollutants. This process allows toxins to accumulate in a density a million times higher than normal. What happens when fish and seabirds mistake the plastic for food? Scientists have found evidence that these toxins are entering the food chain, and ultimately winding up in our bodies. Worse still, plastic doesnt biodegrade. Instead, it becomes trapped in massive maelstroms of garbage. Scientists have identified five of these so-called gyres. A few of them are larger than Spain and Portugal combined. The worlds biggest dumps are at sea. This is what we kno

Golfing With Animals
2010 nature-wildlife
Golfing with Animals is a film about a paradox! The paradox is, that there actually are wild animals and plants in manmade environments, close to humans. The habitat may seem tame but the law of the jungle is always in use amongst those animals that live there. The survival of the fittest is obvious for those creatures that live in an apparently safe and tame environment. Is a golf course a wildlife environment? We are turning the expression wildlife upside down. The purpose is to show an artificial environment as wildlife. Golfing with Animals show the habitants and guests (except humans) you can meet in a man made habitat and that it can be very rich of species. In the film we meet conflicts in a no-mans-land but also that humans and wild animals can coexist in peace. We have chosen to use a golf course as an example. An environment that is wilder than expected! Golfing with Animals is told from an entertaining and humoristic angle. Through the view of the animals looking at the game of golf and its partici

1000 to 1: The Cory Weissman Story
2014 Drama
1000 to 1 is the inspiring, true story of Cory Weissman, a high school basketball star who scored 1, 000 points in high school and was expected to be a standout athlete at Gettysburg College. Following a catastrophic stroke at the end of his freshman year, the film chronicles Cory's against-all-odds comeback from this life-threatening stroke with the help of his mother Tina, a physical therapist, as well as the encouragement of both his dedicated basketball coach and his girlfriend who loves Cory just the way he is. Cory is an upbeat, hard-working freshman getting ready to take over as point guard –but at the beginning of his sophomore year, suffers a catastrophic stroke and only quick action by his best friend “Pops” and the race to save his life in the athletic training room prevents him from dying. Despite the many challenges, Cory perseveres: the difficult physical therapy, an emotional break-up with the girl he loves, and dark moments that threaten to consume him. Through it all Cory prevails, with the love and support of his best friend, his family, his school, and most importantly—his own indomitable spirit. 1000 to 1 is the gripping, emotional, at times humorous and ultimately powerful story of Cory's against-all-odds recovery with the message that the human spirit has the power to overcome even the greatest obstacles. “1000 to 1” highlights Cory’s personal and spiritual growth that brings him the deep insights that can only be gained by surviving a near death experience—and shows an amazing act of sportsmanship at Cory's final basketball game--leading to a climactic free throw and an unexpected realization from Cory about finding new meaning in his life on, and more importantly, off the court.
