Over the last month, we have been in the Creative Direction/Pre-Production phase for the upcoming production of several films for J.Q. Dickinson Salt-Works, a 7th-generation salt-making family who “hand-harvests an all-natural salt, from an ancient ocean trapped under the Appalachian mountains of the Kanawha Valley of West Virginia.”
After several hours of creative planning and development, Nancy Bruns & Lewis Payne, siblings and co-creators of salt, took us out on a tour of their land & work, showing us their sun houses where they produce the salt, the well where they collect brine, and the family farm where William D. Dickinson first began producing salt along the Kanawha River in Malden, West Virginia.
Here are a few photographs from the tour of the historic J.Q. Dickinson Salt-Works.

These native’s of Oregon, dreamer of dreams, and sister-kin will blow you away - with their new album, Native Dreamer Kin, at their live shows (particularly in a living room setting), or sitting and hearing their stories; let their rootsy, bold, and sweet harmonies overwhelm you and never look back.
The pleasure was all ours when we heard them play at Blenheim Vineyards right outside Charlottesville, Virginia earlier this month. Afterwards, we shot this music session of their song, Eyes to the Sky, within the trees outlining an historical Virginia estate & vineyard.
