Woman-Owned EDP Produces Documentary for the National Park Service
March 28th, 2017 - by Effective Digital Presentations | Share on:
EDP produced a 15-minute documentary film for the National Park Service, Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, filmed in the fall of 2016. The film is featured in the Park's Visitor's Center in Page, Arizona and features interviews with seven regional Native American tribe members commenting on their tribe's connection to the Colorado River. This video is a excerpt of the film and shows interviews from 3 of the participants.
EDP worked closely with Park staff, including Christiana Admiral, Chief of Interpretation, Partnerships and Education for Glen Canyon National Recreation Area and Rainbow Bridge National Monument. The project was filmed on-location in the park in Arizona as well as on neighboring reservations in Utah and Colorado. Paul Kakert, EDP's co-owner and filmmaker, worked as a 1-person crew and was able to quickly and efficiently visit key areas of the park and include footage of iconic landmarks including Horseshoe Bend and Rainbow Bridge.
The most challenging aspect of the project was the coordination of all interview subjects from the seven participating tribes located in a 3-state area around the park. EDP worked hand-in-hand with the park staff to arrange for the locations and times of all interviews, most of which were completed within a one week timeframe.
Upon initial release of the video at the Visitor's Center, Christiana reported the film is getting rave reviews.
