Everyone has a story to tell. Before studying film at the University of Alaska Fairbanks I had an interest in people in transition, whether that be location, health or their stage in life. Retirement, ageing, homelessness, loss, illness and accidents, all take their toll. Capturing those times is a worthwhile endeavor. With my ties to Alaska and my Native brothers and sisters I always look for elders who want to share their past on film as a documentary or screenplay. My films are produced with the utmost attention to detail and authenticity. Looking for a Movie Producer that really knows how to get the job done right? Check out my recent work and see what I can do for you today!

right to die/die with dignity movement
The right to die is a moral principle based on the belief that a human being is entitled to end their own life or to undergo voluntary euthanasia.
Pet owners are thought to be humane when their aged family pets are put down.
Married for a year, Brittany Maynard, 29, found she had aggressive brain cancer. She had six months to live and didn't want her family to watch her die in pain. Maynard and her family moved to Oregon to take advantage of the Death with Dignity law. She says nobody has the right to take away the option from someone who is terminally ill.

Carney's Show House
Fort Yukon, Alaska

I sometimes meet old timers who remember Carney's Show House in Fort Yukon, Alaska. It was owned and operated by my parents Eunice and Bill Carney from the 1930's -1951. 20-25 movies were delivered twice a year by steamboat and they were viewed over and over again with enthusiasm. They were silent then talkies, westerns and B movies. In the later years better quality movies arrived. The Show House drew a crowd every weekend. My parents sold candy bars and made root beer and ice cream for sale. When the movie was over, the benches were cleared away to dance, and dance they would, sometimes all night. Bill Carney had strict rules for his patrons so everyone had a good time. If someone got out of hand, he would bring out his blackjack and calm would prevail.
