SPOTLIGHT:

Hudson River AT RISK

Over a century ago, The Hudson River, America’s first river, was a vibrant fishing community. Contrary to it’s genesis as the environmental movement, The Hudson River, has become an illustration of corporate greed, human wasteland, and lack of environmental policies. The Hudson: A River at Risk is an award-winning episodic documentary web series narrating the grave risk the river now faces.

Produced by National Geographic writer and filmmaker Jon Bowermaster

FILMCRAFT

Inspired camera work and the written word combine to push documentary and marketing into the same space as feature films. Regardless of genre, our sole purpose is to make the audience feel something without ever realizing why. You never want to see the hand of the filmmakers, you just want to experience it.

Northguild was established because we recognize strength in the sum of our parts. We call on seasoned creative visionaries to join us as we custom tailor a crew for each film. Meet the guild.

STORYTELLING

Award-winning story-telling is the result of captivating the audience. It involves characterizing a feeling and what’s taking place within the confines of a frame–where the story exists. Yet, it’s more than just a visual frame, it’s the music, the sound of the environment, the direction in which the camera motivates it’s viewers and communicates a feeling. 

SPOTLIGHT:

RESTORING THE CLEARWATER

For nearly a year the historic sloop ‘Clearwater’ was out of the water, on land, enduring what wooden boats have historically endured forever: Restoration. Onshore, swathed in tarps and protective sheets, the nearly 60-year-old wooden boat was carefully mended and updated. Built under the visionary leadership of musician/activist and Hudson Valley resident Pete Seeger, the ‘Clearwater’ continues to fulfill the original mission he envisioned, to help educate and share the plight of our local Hudson River environment as it luffs its sails and roams America’s “First River.”
