These faces say it all. It’s a pleasure to be filming another Weinberg library reveal at James McHenry Elementary School in west Baltimore. For years we’ve gotten to see these beautiful faces light up when Harry and Jeannette Weinberg Foundation surprises these students with a brand new place for their imaginations to thrive. They have renovated many libraries over the years. Happy holidays!!! 🕎 ❤️ 🎄
Early Light Cleaners! New business idea. Actually our wonderful Account Manager @nikilicious19 organized a day for ELM to give back and volunteer at Believe in Tomorrow, an incredible organization that helps the families of sick children with housing during their care at Johns Hopkins. The other half of the team is in their kitchen baking Christmas cookies for the children. So awesome. Thank you for making this happen, Niki! It feels good to remember to help and be grateful for what we have. 📸 by @darrendurlach

“The American Dream is still alive and well,” White says, “Regardless of your circumstances.” A quote from Dr White from a Baltimore Sun article online right now by Tim Smith about Richards story and our journey to chronicle it. Head to earlylightmedia.com and our blog to get the link! Thank you everyone and keep spreading the word so we can reach our fundraising goal in indiegogo (link in profile) and donate a brand new $2700 MacBook Pro to Richard’s high school the @baltschoolarts . The picture is a screengrab from RAW DP @sgrundler That we captured on our New Mexico shoot in the Sandia Mountains. ⛰ . . . . #americandream #education #baltimore #newmexico #music #art #tuba #charmcity #documentary #journalism #filmmaking #setlife #movies #shortfilm #filming #onset #instagood #moviemaking #filmmakinglife #photographer #shortfilms #filmmakerslife #directing #tv #mm #filmmakersworld #independentfilm #dop #directorofphotography
It takes a village of dedicated people to make a movie as you can tell from all our crew shout outs. In the first picture is Nick Gorey, a talented first AC who worked incredibly hard for us on this shoot, pic by @tylerwdavis. In the second picture, Zach Trees is holding the boom and mixing sound for us at Peabody Conservatory and came in huge for us on four full days of shooting, pic by Tyler Davis. In the third picture, @bougie_nanda helped 4-year-old King look like a 1970s version of Richard by sourcing some logo-free clothes and shoes with some nuianced wardrobe styling, pic by @bmoreawaire . Thank you, Nick, Zach, and Nanda! See the link in our profile to see the trailer and some of their handy work! We’re working hard to get to our goal with only one week left to go. Almost at 50% funded! Please continue to share the word. We got this.

Another shout out to a total rock star who came through for us big time on RAW even though we almost broke his back having him chase our little principal actor King around all day. That steadicam is way heavier than it looks. @tylerwdavis is a killer steadicam op and worked with @darrendurlach , @djlarson and @sgrundler to achieve some gorgeous footage. He’s also a talented DP and you should hire him. He also has incredible tattoos. We’re almost at 50% funded! Thank you everyone and let’s keep pushing! Only a week left. Link in profile ☝️.

Video production can be frightening. Let us help. We don’t bite . . . hard. Muhhahahaha! . . . . #halloween #jackolantern #scary #spooky #videostar #videoproduction #filmmaking #videomarketing #baltimore #charmcity #bite #muhahaha
Another shout out to a critical member of the R.A.W. film team @sacred_bacon ! Sean Mercer (right) is a complete pro and we can’t thank him enough for joining us on this effort. Sean produced a studio session at @mobtownstudios for us recording Richard and various other musicians for the R.A.W. soundtrack. He’s also composing the score! He will be in the film as well now that our studio session actually turned out to be one of the most magical scenes. @no_love_will (Richard’s Brother) came to the studio to freestyle rap over Richard’s Tuba and it was insane. Not only was it an epic moment captured for the film but Sean has produced two radio-worthy tracks that should be bumping out of car stereos all over Baltimore. We’re almost at 50% funded with 8 days left in our crowdfunding campaign! We need your help more than ever to finish strong. Please visit the link in our profile to read more and help us out! Thank you for everyone’s efforts thus far and look for our @baltimoresun Article this Sunday in the Arts and Entertainment section. We love you! #rawesome . . . #baltimore #music #recordingartist #documentary #documentaryfilm #raw #rapartist #tuba #charmcity #artsy #filmmaker #filmscore #musicproducer #arri #indiegogo #crowdfunding #videoproduction #inspirational #inspiration #overcome #instagood
A major shout out to @bmoreawaire who not only took some really nice behind the scenes pics for R.A.W. (Including this one) But also donated to our campaign on Indiegogo! John is a great talent and definitely a go-to still photographer for ELM. He’s also perhaps one of the easiest people to work with, an incredible attitude, and someone who we just like a lot as a human being. Visit his profile, check out his website and do hire him for your still photo needs. We’re never disappointed. Thank you everyone for your help. We’re almost at 30% funded and we need your help more than ever to finish strong in the next two weeks. Thank you for continuing to share! . . . . #filmmaker #indie #indiefilm #documentary #rawesome #raw #photography #bts #baltimore #baltimorephotographer #charmcity #videoproduction #indiegogo #crowdfunding #instagram
How does one direct a legendary director? Very carefully. We had a unique and awesome morning. John Waters was a very kind man, very pleasant to work with & extraordinarily funny. Please go see his fantastic new exhibit at the Baltimore Museum of Art. Mr Waters is a treasure and so is his art. . . . #johnwaters #devine #divine #baltimore #baltimoreart #hairspray #director #directorofphotography #filmmaker #videoproduction #crybaby #seedofchucky #pecker #serialmom #bma #videoproduction #legend #charmcity
We’ve already had a really positive response from the community from the broadcast this morning! Thank you all for supporting our project and helping us share Richard’s incredible story. One thing we forgot to mention on air is just how honored we are that he trusts us with his story. It’s a lot of responsibility and our only goal is getting it right. If we do our job, then it will naturally be seen by many people. Read more in the link in our bio and spread the word. Thank you all so much. We’re getting close to 20% funded. And amazing to connect with old friends Megan Gilliland, Tom Rodgers, and Candace Dold!

A big shout out to @sgrundler who is the DP for R.A.W. and has gone above and beyond for the film. His mastery of light, capturing moments, and perfectionism have completely elevated the production. It doesn’t hurt that he has been working with @arri master prime anamorphic lenses as you can see from the screen shot above of Richard reflecting on a stoop in his old neighborhood of Sandtown. We highly recommend Spencer if you need a great DP and will give shout outs to more crew in the coming days. Tune into fox 45 morning news tomorrow to see Dave and Darren awkwardly talk about the film and campaign. There’s a reason they are behind the camera. Thanks for the ongoing donations and support, everyone! . . . . #rawesome #dp #dop #directorofphotography #arrimasterprime #arri #redcamera #redcinema #batimore #documentary #filmmaker #director #charmcity #indiegogo #crowdfunding #indiefilm #tuba #music
So humbled and thrilled to announce that our upcoming film R.A.W. was one of eleven projects to receive a 2018 Mountainfilm Commitment grant out of 170 applicants. The grant is for $2k! Super generous but we still need a lot of help to reach our goal in order to finish, distribute the film, and spread Richards message. To read more about the grant and where to donate, click on the link in our profile. Thank you so much @mountainfilm ! #rawesome The picture is of Richard’s adopted father’s gospel choir in West Baltimore. A joy to film. . . . #awesome #tuba #documentary documentaryfilm #mountainfilm #adventurefilm #filmmaker #video #videoproduction #adobepremiere #sonyfs7ii #hope #inspirational #music #musicdocumentary #baltimore #charmcity #arts
We’re so close to our 10% goal that we want to meet by the weekend, y’all! Thank you for everything so far and keep helping us get out the message of hope! Link in profile. Picture: Astride a chariot of Darren, the actor who plays Richard White as a young boy is preparing for his role. Five year old King was such a joy to work with. It was a long day for him but was a champ and played the part amazingly well. Dave is putting his shoes back on because Richard was known as the “shoe-less kid” so King had play a lot of the part without shoes on his cute little 5 year old feet. This kid loved snacks! We can’t wait for you to see his performance.

Love this post by @no_love_will. See what he wrote below. I guess being ultra inspiring runs in the fam. We can’t wait to introduce you all to William, Richard’s brother. Both are musical. Richard went classical and William is a free-style hip hop artist. We know what you’re thinking and the answer is “yes.” We captured their first time collaborating together on film and it’s even more powerful and unexpected than you imagined. Definitely one of our favorite moments we’ve captured so far. It’s radio good. Thanks everyone for all the love so far in the campaign!

We are excited to announce that we have launched an official crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo (link in profile) for our latest self-funded short film project, R.A.W. - From Destitute to Doctorate. Dr. Richard White has a scar on his side from when he was left in an abandoned row home as a child and was chewed on by rats. He slept on the street and ate from trash cans. That boy is now the tubist of the New Mexico Philharmonic, a professor at the University of New Mexico, and the first African American to receive a Doctorate of Music in Tuba Performance in the world. What we’ve captured so far is pure documentary magic and we believe in this story, this message, and Dr, Richard Antoine White (R.A.W.). But we can’t make this without you. Click on the link in our profile to donate, read why your donation is critical, watch our unofficial trailer, and help us share Dr. White’s message with Baltimore youth and beyond. It’s been nothing short of blood, sweat, and tears and we simply can’t do it alone, especially to complete the film by mid-November to reach our viewership goals. Thank you for any of your generous support. Even just sharing this is a major help. #rawesome Special thanks to @yasdnilpet for this gorgeous movie poster! . . . . #music #tuba #baltimore #inspiration #orchestra #symphony #baltimoreartist #newmexicoartist #crowdfunding #indiegogo #film #filmmaker #documentaryfilm #documentary #sonyfs7 #inspirationalspeaker #director #directorofphotography #charmcity #rap #hustle #grind #africanamericanhistory #historymaker #musichistory #movieposter
There’s a couple new faces around the ELM office but one is significantly hairier than the other. One comes to the office everyday as a new account manager and one is only here to play for just today (unfortunately). Meet Niki Keser (right 😊) and her 85 lb German Shepard, Sgt. We’re excited to have them both! Check out our about us page (link in bio) to learn more about Niki. She’s a fantastic new addition who will help us in so many ways better serve our clients. Sgt is just here to help us scare the crap out of the mail person 😂, but also make our day so much brighter. SGT wouldn’t hurt a fly. . . . . #germanshepherd #dogsofinstagram #productioncompany #director #account #videoproduction #producer #director #directorofphotography #baltimore #charmcity #earlylightmedia #servicedog #photography #awesome
