    Project Info

    Horsepower Spot

    :60 spot for Horsepower the Movie:  A documentary film investigating humankind’s relationship with horses and the disturbing truths about rescue, slaughter and the current welfare of horses in America.

    This video features the Randy Dodge and his beautiful draft horse team, who won the hitch pull event, where teams compete to pull increasingly heavy loads of concrete at least 20 feet. This team won the competition, pulling 9,500 lbs! These draft horses are trained to pull heavy loads and no animals were harmed in the making of this motion picture.

    VISIT at HorsepowerTheMovie.com for lots more info, tons of photos, blogs and more videos!

    OUR GOAL: To educate America on the history and current state of horse welfare and positively impact regulation, training, horse care and rescue – we strongly believe this movie will help align stakeholders and improve the lives of horses. This movie is not a plea to share the opinions of the filmmakers — far from it — we aren’t arguing absolute positions for or against horse slaughter or any other hot issues. We are passionate and we are “pro-horse”, but we take an objective approach to our research and filmmaking.

    Project Info

    Your Voice

    This project began with how I feel, but it is about us…I made it for you.

    “Your Voice” is a true solo project. I captured or created every image, sound and musical note.

    While it is not a “commercial” project, and may seem quite the opposite, I’ve flagged it as commercial as well because I fully believe in the possibility and necessity of highly authentic, expressive commercial media and enjoy working with brands where the people and the mission agree.

    Horsepower Spot

    :60 spot for Horsepower the Movie:  A documentary film investigating humankind’s relationship with horses and the disturbing truths about rescue, slaughter and the current welfare of horses in America.

    This video features the Randy Dodge and his beautiful draft horse team, who won the hitch pull event, where teams compete to pull increasingly heavy loads of concrete at least 20 feet. This team won the competition, pulling 9,500 lbs! These draft horses are trained to pull heavy loads and no animals were harmed in the making of this motion picture.

    VISIT at HorsepowerTheMovie.com for lots more info, tons of photos, blogs and more videos!

    OUR GOAL: To educate America on the history and current state of horse welfare and positively impact regulation, training, horse care and rescue – we strongly believe this movie will help align stakeholders and improve the lives of horses. This movie is not a plea to share the opinions of the filmmakers — far from it — we aren’t arguing absolute positions for or against horse slaughter or any other hot issues. We are passionate and we are “pro-horse”, but we take an objective approach to our research and filmmaking.
