As Americans, we spend upwards of $10 billion every year seeking happiness. Additional billions (yes, plural) of dollars are spent annually on antidepressants. Yet we consistently rank low on the United Nation’s World Happiness Report. Today we are speaking with Adam Shell and Nicholas Kraft, the director/editor and producer of the film “Pursuing Happiness: A Documentary About Finding the Happiest People in America.” Adam and Nicholas spoke to over 400 happiness experts (many folks just like you and me) as they traveled over 6,000 miles, visiting 20 different states! Their tale is not a purely Pollyanna one though—to know the light we must experience the dark. What these two brilliant men do share, is a film with enormous heart. “Pursuing Happiness" has connection and community as its heartbeat; it is a film that had me burst out in laughter and silently shed tears. It is a film I intend to share over and over again with family and friends…and today I begin that sharing with you.
Our guest, Producer/Director Beth Harrington, discusses funding her most recent masterpiece, “The Winding Stream,” the story of the Carter Cash families, and Beth has the last interview with the one and only Johnny Cash.

Author and filmmaker Stormy May is changing the way equestrians think about their horses: no bits, no saddles....no riding. Her popular documentary film, The Path of the Horse, is a fascinating look at the horse and human heart and the other-worldy potential for their relationship.
About a decade ago, Stormy, formerly a champion competitor, instructor, and judge in equestrian sporting events, sold her ranch and bought a camera. She set out to travel the world and film the greatest horsemen and women, people whom she respected and read, and to learn a different and more humane way to work with horses. Her journey uncovered research that challenged her thinking and led her to look at her relationship with her own horses much differently.
She'll share her journey and her thoughts on horses in this conversation on Minstrel and Muse.
Joanna Rabiger shares Fundraising and Professional Writing for Documentary Films: proposals, crowdsourcing (Indiegogo, Kickstarter, etc).

“Back on Board: Greg Louganis” is an intimate portrait of the public triumphs and private struggles of trailblazing openly gay athlete Greg Louganis. In this episode, Nicholas Snow presents his coverage of Greg at the 2015 Palm Springs International Film Festival, and offers an encore presentation of a previous red carpet inter view with the Olympian.
A refreshingly candid documentary film about this four-time Olympic champion, “Back on Board” follows Greg Louganis over the past three years as he struggles with financial security and reunites with the sport he once dominated but not welcomed in. The threat of losing his house during the recent financial crisis forces Louganis to re-evaluate the choices, relationships, and missed opportunities of his career.
With unprecedented access, the film reveals the complicated life of an athlete whose grace, beauty, and courage sparked a worldwide fascination with diving. It chronicles Louganis’ rise from a difficult upbringing to nearly universal acclaim as the greatest diver ever, and from pioneering openly gay athlete with HIV to an overlooked sports icon. “Back on Board” is the engrossing story of an American legend as he re-emerges on the world stage to combat prejudice, promote tolerance, and return to the diving world after a long period of absence to act as a mentor to the next generation.
