Filmmakers Win Nau's Grant for Change, Totally Deserve It

by Andrew Price

October 14, 2009
Our friends at Nau just announced the recipients of their first ever $10,000 "Grant for Change": film and photography duo Benjamin Drummond and Sara Joy Steele.Drummond and Steele make stunningly photographed short films about people doing inspiring things. Their work is visually polished but has a frankness that's reminiscent of NPR at its best. One recent documentary profiled the Sustainable Prisons Project, an inmate gardening and ecology program run by the Washington State Department of Corrections and The Evergreen State College. Another piece examined the effect a camping trip to the North Cascades had on 19 urban teenagers (spoiler: it was positive). Both films are very worth your time.You can see the other finalists for the Nau Grant for Change here.
