Being Hear
Gordon Hempton is an Emmy Award winning nature sound recordist and acoustic ecologist from Joyce, Washington. For a vast majority of his life he has traveled all over the world in search of sound. In recent years, an ever increasing intrusion of noise pollution from human activity has interfered with his work. Being Hear is a short ten-minute documentary about Gordon, his work, and his thoughts about the epidemic extinction of quiet places on Earth due to this noise pollution. The film takes place on the Olympic Peninsula, the largest coniferous forest and only rain forest in the continental United States. It also features his world renowned and award-winning sound recordings.

Super Hummingbirds
With high speed camerawork and breakthrough new science, we enter the fast-paced world of hummingbirds as never before. Speed is their middle name. Their lives are moving faster than the eye can see. They possess natural born super powers that enable them to fly backwards, upside-down, and float in mid-air. And for the first time, we see them mate, lay eggs, fight, and raise families in intimate detail. They are great athletes, tender mothers, brave in combat, and up for any challenge. They are Super Hummingbirds, the smallest, most brilliant birds on earth.
