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
Happy Birthday to Jody!!! He just turned 50! Jody, we couldn’t be more grateful to know you, work with you, and take advantage of your senior discount 😋Love you! - ELM Team
Please support the US Naval Academy by visiting the link in our bio. It was truly humbling to witness how this school develops young men and women into leaders of the highest standards. The list is long of alumni who have gone on to do historic achievements, protect this country in massive ways, and made the ultimate sacrifice. Many of these midshipmen were in preschool when the twin towers fell, and yet they purpose to make sure it never happens again. God bless them and #neverforget

Get Excited! This past weekend @dcunited premiered their new @audifield stadium in front of a packed house. They asked us to produce the hype video that plays before the team takes the field. This was a fun one to create.

D.C United had a MAJOR announcement yesterday and it was an honor they asked us to partner with them on creating a super fun spot to help release the news! Go to their Insta page and scroll down to see it. It was released yesterday and already has hundreds of thousands of views combined on all their platforms, so you know the world is talking about this legendary acquisition. And what a way to start the season in their brand new stadium, @audifield. We’re in the middle of another exciting project for them that we can’t wait to share soon! xoxoxoxoxoxo @dcunited.

Across the board, our partners, clients, film financiers, and vendors are people & companies who believe in human rights and human dignity, promote the principals of human equality, and stand for what’s right in this world. Many of our clients are non-profits and foundations, whose sole purpose is to open doors for families and communities to have a fighting chance. But believe it or not, some of the multi-billion dollar international companies we work with (who don’t have to give at all) are also putting enormous resources into leaving a smaller footprint, education, and programs to give back. Frankly if they didn’t, we wouldn’t work with them. We challenge you to do the same. Say “no" to companies, organizations, or people whose mission is harmful to this earth and the community of beautiful people who live here. Open your doors to all the good and don’t let fear stop you from opening your hearts & minds 🌈. Here’s a few screen grabs from a couple projects for clients who give a lot to the world. You know who you are!) . . . #openthedoor #loveeveryone #ethicalliving #moral #crossingborders #borderpatrol #humanrights #humandignity #familytime #staytogether #gratitude #photography #videoproduction #documentary #humanity #inspirationalquotes #inspiration #politics #motherhood #kids #diversity #fear #immigration #immigrants #trump #republicans #democrats #freedom #americans

It's Super Man Day (yep, a real thing, ask #alexa ), and that got us reminiscing about a recent shoot when we were able to fly high above the city with REAL superheroes. We've been so fortunate to work for Livingston Productions the last 4 years to produce short documentary films about the life-saving efforts of the people of the University of Maryland, Shock Trauma Medical system. They premiere these stories every year at their gala and invite all the real-life superheroes of each story as a way to honor them and the brave patients who also courageously fought for their own lives. In some stories, there are literally dozens, if not hundreds, of people who work together to save one life. From 911 operators, to first responders, EMTs, Firefighters, pilots, nurses, doctors, technicians, support staff, therapists, and the list goes on and on and on. It's a goosebump type-of-thing to see these people on stage with the patients they save. Thank you, for being a great partner Maribeth and for the opportunity to meet these supermen and superwomen.

Finally got Jess in the office to update that headshot! Jess is mostly behind the scenes but basically keeps us running. She runs projections, monitors all cash flow, tells us if we can buy new toys or hire awesome people. Basically we’re just lost artists without her.

CRI is one of our original clients and never ceases to amaze with the passion for making rowing an accessible sport for all. They are celebrating a major achievement with a 10 year anniversary of being in the Harry Parker Boathouse. They started with one member walking the streets of Cambridge and asking everyone he knew if they wanted to learn how to row (so he could get a team) and their first boathouse was a shack on the river. They’ve been so successful at rallying the troops and doing positive things for the community that now they have a beautiful and functional facility and thousands of members. #Repost @criboston ・・・ Check out this amazing video showcasing our first 10 years in the stunning Harry Parker Boathouse! Thank you to everyone who has made our mission of #RowingForAll a reality and here’s to ten more years of rowing at the Harry Parker Boathouse!

The Herndon Monument climb at the US Naval Academy is a tradition since the 1970s in which the giant monolithic structure is covered in lard and the plebes (freshmen) must work together to climb to the the top and replace the plebe hat with a midshipmen cap symbolizing the end of their first year. It’s a mess and looks rather painful but in 2hrs and 9 mins they completed the task. Here are a few moments captured yesterday by @darrendurlach . Looking forward to sharing this project soon! . . . #usnavy #herndonmonumentclimb #production #commercial #armedforces #sonyrx100m3 #blackandwhite #herndon #annapolis #plebes #midshipmen #tradition #moment
