We have worked with Whole Foods Market to generate a series of videos that have been made available to all the team members. Essentially the videos offer insights into current and future programs that Whole Foods Market is working with, as well as short videos about their vendors. For now the series is for internal use only.

Wright Institute Master

virtualtour.jpeg

Duration: 6:39 The WRIGHT Institute is a unique university located near UC Berkeley. They teach a Psychologya Master and Doctorate Program renowned around the country for its hands-on approach. From the start of the 1st years, students are placed into local agencies, jails, schools, health clinics and begin practicing alongside experienced clinical psychologists, and professors. The institute has a social agenda where all the patients the students follow are populations that would never have access to such therapy otherwise, even though they might be the ones who need it the most. Here is a short film we produced for them in the Madnomad Films style: a direct look at the program from the perspective of those who study and teach there. It shows what the Institute really is.

John Avalos Everyday Giant

Duration: 4'46" This is part of a series we produced for John Avalos who is running for Mayor in San Francisco. John is a very sincere person, and that surprised us for a politician. But after a few other videos, we got to know him and understood that the documentary form was the right approach to make a video about him for his campaign.

Music by Gustavo Santaolalla: Apertura. Black & White Title Picture by Steve Rhodes

JOHN AVALOS has been endorsed by a landslide number of large local organizations in San Francisco. Read about their endorsement to understand why he is the right candidate to lead San Francisco today.

He has also received the support of TOM AMMIANO, Aron Peskin, Davis Campos, Eric Mar, Ross Mirkirami. He was chair of the budget committee for 2 years and managed to balance the budget to keep vital services.

Dust & Illusions. Full Feature Documentary

dust2_square.jpg

Duration of trailer: 6' (Film duration: 75') After 4 years of work, Dust & Illusions is completed. The film explores 30 years of history of Burning Man all the way back to the late 70s into the origins of the event, with never seen footage of the Suicide Club, the Cacophony Society, and the early burns on San Francisco Baker beach. Twenty interviewees expose their views about the history of the event, and its evolution into a large festival. The film is the first to present Burning Man with a critical eye (not a negative one) and analyze how successful the event really is in its intention of recreating community and bringing art back to "ordinary" people. Watch it and be the judge, as the film doesn't try to draw conclusions one way or the other.
