Field of Hope is a non profit organization who's mission is to reduce the destructive cycle of hunger and poverty by sharing talents and resources with farming communities in developing nations.
Our latest project, created in collaboration with Arable Media, captures Whitney's experience as a first time volunteer during a recent service trip to Uganda to create a vivid account of the work and impact Field of Hope pursues around the world.
This is Whitney’s story. What will your story be?
Ultralite Films directors Bud Force and Scott Hardesty are currently in post production on a new short film exploring the philosophies and inner workings of a free solo ice climber.
Ultralite Films' director Bud Force has partnered with esteemed photographer John Langmore to direct and produce a feature length documentary about the big outfit working American cowboy via their feature film production company, 1922 Films. Over the course of the past six months, they and the documentary crew have been traveling across the American West to create the trailer.
We hope you enjoy this authentic glimpse into a way of life known by few.
"Told in the cinematic tradition of classic westerns, this feature-length documentary offers the opportunity to ride alongside modern working cowboys on some of America's largest and most remote cattle ranches. COWBOYS documents the lives of the men and women working on "big outfit" cattle ranches - some of which are over one million acres - and still require a crew of horseback workers to tend large herds of cattle.
Narrated through first-hand accounts from the cowboys themselves, the story is steeped in authenticity and explores the rewards and hardships of a celebrated but misunderstood way of life and the challenges that lie ahead for the cowboys and ranches critical to providing the world's supply of beef.
Filmed on locations across the American West, COWBOYS features historic ranches in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Montana, Wyoming and Nevada."
