Seeding the Sea
Where fishermen were once able to catch over 100 pounds of fish in one day off the coast of Belize, now they can barely catch a fraction of that. Seaweed farming offers a more sustainable alternative for both the economy and the environment. Lowell Godfrey has grown up in Placencia, and now has his own seaweed farm that he hopes will show other fishermen that they can make their livelihood in a sustainable way.

Women to Women
Created an advertising campaign for the non-profit Women to Women. The campaign increased their impressions by 400% in the first week and boosted their owned content by 240%- ultimately raising $150,000 for virus relief efforts in Greensboro.
We spent weeks organizing and scheduling interviews with the grant recipients from Women To Women. Since COVID also severely limited our ability to capture original footage, we also had to be in constant contact to get photos and videos from the non-profits as well.
