Though we cherish the variety of our projects, clients, and collaborators, we’re finding a particular joy in telling stories of people and companies endeavoring to do good in the world.
We have chosen First Descents as one of our primary philanthropic partners. We’ve experienced the undeniable power of their programs and believe wholeheartedly in the power of adventure and time in nature to teach and heal. It’s not possible to experience one of their programs and not feel the tangible difference it makes in the lives of the participants.
This project was the second in a series we’re producing with with THOR Industries highlighting the healing power of nature. THOR has made a powerful multifaceted commitment to support the mission of First Descents. In addition to financial contributions, awareness raising efforts, and staff volunteering, THOR effectively saved FD’s Montana programming by also providing trailer units. The trailers, which provided housing for participants, staff, and volunteers, enabled FD to utilize a generous offer to use the beautiful and historic Cliffs Ranch in Ovando, MT as a location.
As a direct result of THOR’s partnership of First Descents and on this project specifically, 13 young adults with cancer had their lives changed for the better. We could not be more proud to tell their story.
Projects like these take a village. We had over 30 people working together and living off the grid for a week in the woods of Montana. It was a big complex puzzle with a million moving pieces but thanks to the hard work of the First Descents Staff, the Tarkio guides, THOR Industries staff, the Cliff’s ranch staff, and our entire production team, it all came together as one big beautiful thing.
Also thanks to all these brands for helping provide product:
