Seven Mornings in Maine
This DVD is about the variety and possibilities of morning.
It is a blend of sight and sound. First are beautiful images, recorded over ten years while producing documentaries about places in Maine. Second is music, performed and written by musicians we have come to know and love, nearly all from Maine. Each morning unfolds in its own unique personal way. There are the rocky edges at Schoodic Point. There is the hustle of lobstermen heading out in Stonington, the farms and potato fields in Aroostook County, the lighthouse at Pemaquid Point. There are the uncharted colors of sky in Eastport and the simple nature of Lane’s Island on Vinalhaven. It is a quiet meditative piece for anyone who loves morning, loves Maine, loves morning in Maine.

Stewards by the Sea
This is a story about time and the importance of what you do with it. It is told by a place and the people of that place-the Pemaquid Peninsula. It is a story of oyster shells piled high one thousand years ago, and oysters grown for market today. It is a story of four hundred year old foundations, a hundred fifty year old lighthouse, and ice harvested in February that is still solid in August. These are stories of people who collect things from the past, like lunch boxes, boats, memories, and save them for the future. They are stories of people, who each in their own way, do something to make the place they live a little better for those who are to follow. It might be as fleeting as a sticky bun, baked, sold and consumed in the same morning. Or it might be as permanent as mother and child carved in granite that will last forever.

Where Sea Meets Land
This video is about the communities of Gouldsboro, Prospect Harbor, Corea and Winter Harbor, Maine. They all share a peninsula on the coast and an understanding of magic. It is the magic of ocean knocking against a rocky coast, or sun burning through a lingering morning fog. It is the magic found in the practical approach to living that is engendered on this coastal peninsula. As Lobsterman Dale Torrey puts it, “You can’t explain it, it’s just in you.”
