A local film in progress will illuminate the people behind the glass at Vertical Harvest. By Meg Daly
JACKSON HOLE, WY – How do we nourish community? That is the question explored in a new film in progress, Hearts of Glass, about Vertical Harvest, the urban greenhouse in downtown Jackson that has made people sit up and take notice. Funded in part through a unique public/private partnership with the Town of Jackson, it is one of very few vertical greenhouses in the world.
Vertical Harvest has been written up in The New York Times, The Atlantic, and myriad other publications. It has garnered attention not only for an innovative approach to growing food, but also for co-founders Penny McBride’s and Nona Yehia’s commitment to employing people with developmental disabilities.
Bad news, good news – Although we made it to the finals, we didn’t win the Seed&Spark / Project Greenlight Digital Studios Untold Story Rally, but we premiered our re-vamped trailer at the Center for the Arts, submitted a grant request to Humanities Montana, entered the The Paley Center for Media Documentary Pitch Competition and applied for two production funding grants. We are moving forward on all fronts – filmmaking and funding, baby! Thanks to all the folks and organizations who have supported us thus far! Center of Wonder, Wyoming Humanities Council, Wyoming Arts Council and Wyoming Governor’s Council on Developmental Disabilities. Hold good thoughts for future funding and feel free to spread the word about “Hearts of Glass,” a documentary following Vertical Harvest of Jackson Hole‘s first year of operation.
Hearts of Glass, the documentary collaboration between JenTen Productions and Slow Food in the Tetons, is a finalist in the Untold Story Crowdfunding Rally. The film focuses on the intersection of food and community and will follow the critical first year of operation of Vertical Harvest, an innovative greenhouse in Jackson, Wyoming that provides meaningful employment to individuals with disabilities.
The Untold Story Crowdfunding Rally, a partnership between Seed&Spark and Project Greenlight Digital Studios, provides filmmakers the chance to win $20,000 in funds, distribution into millions of homes and $5,000 in data storage. The rally is for feature documentaries in production whose focus is a story an audience has never seen before.
Help us gain an opportunity for $25K and distribution into 100 million homes!
JenTen Productions and Slow Food in the Tetons just wrapped up a successful 30-day crowdfunding campaign for “Hearts of Glass” on Seed&Spark, a one-stop platform that allows filmmakers to find funding, audience and distribution. Thanks to everyone who donated to or signed up to follow our campaign!
In order to make it to the finals of the rally, “Hearts of Glass” has to be one of the top 10 most followed projects by July 1st, the rally’s end date.
