The Grit and Thistle Film crew is a talented group of cinematographers, editors, writers and international development specialists dedicated to creating stories that inspire, feel real and look beautiful. We have over 20 years of storytelling experience on six continents, including work in some of the wildest terrain and cultures on the planet – the Hadza in the Central Rift Valley of Africa, Tsaatan reindeer herders in central Asia, black necked crane conservation in the Kingdom of Bhutan, street children in Mongolia, education projects for orphaned and abandoned girls in the Andes.
We’ve worked on commercial promotional shoots for companies as big as NBC and The Weather Channel, and for international NGOs being run by just a few dedicated people in a remote village. Our passion lies in telling the stories of people who don’t normally have a voice in the media, helping organizations create short films that highlight and promote the vital work they are doing in the world.
Here is a short film we made with Miller Tripods and Veterans Expeditions, 2014.
