Inspiration | 11.08.2017 - Water Town

We just heard about this documentary being made in and about our neighboring town Weed, CA by documentary filmmaker Maya Craig (no relation). The trailer looks awesome! We hope this thing gets a wider release and maybe more funding for a full feature. Check out Maya's work here: https://mayacraig.com/documentary/

Pushing Boundaries

Do you ever daydream about what it’s like to model?

The idea of being paid to show off some beautiful locale just sounds dreamy, Instagram-y and totally someone else’s job. Especially when you’re a techie type who spends most of her time on a keyboard. Indoors.

Lake Siskiyou Shoot. First time knowing what it's like having a drone following me. It sounds like a swarm of bees.

Well, dreams come true my friends. Working at Pusher is like all your favorite things wrapped up in a complete package. Because of our location, creative workplace and inspiring projects, there are opportunities to explore a full spectrum of interests.  

My passion is for making -----FILL IN THE BLANK HERE---- useful. I study how people use things, and make sure their needs are being met in a delightful, engaging, fun way. Because life is finite, and we’re meant to enjoy things. Everything can be viewed as an experience. This mantra led me to study User Experience (UX) and to campaign for human happiness.

So in most worlds, my job title would not be diverse enough to include modeling our local tourist treasures. But thankfully, our town is not most worlds. Since my love of sharing great experiences can now include modeling them for others, it’s a fun addition to my work.

Mostly, I am proud of Pusher’s ability to artfully share a story. Stories are what inspire us to care and motivate us to take action. We’re here to support that story, and I’m glad I can contribute in more ways than just one.

More kaDON filming right here in our hometown! Thanks to the staff of the California Theater for letting us film inside and to Dogwood Diner and Cornerstone Cafe for the catering (actually we just ate there a lot).

While reading the Marmoset Journal we came across this wonderful micro-doc by Ryan Bouman. Great mix of visuals, music, and emotion. Each frame is considered, vibrant, and in service of the larger story. Amazing work!

Sent Micah to the mountains for a few weeks and this is what he comes back with! Go figure. Too much talent in one kid!
