Cesar Chavez: Respect for All

This new classroom-friendly 22-minute documentary reveals the astonishing moral foresight of a man known for organizing agricultural workers in the 70's and 80's.  Cesar Chavez: Respect for All, provides a crash course in Cesar's leadership of the vulnerable people who toiled in the fields, but also illuminates his advocacy for women in the workplace, gay equality, and animal rights, among other contemporary causes.

The film follows Cesar's great-grandniece, dynamic 10-year-old activist Genesis Palacio-Butler, on a journey of discovery to learn more about her famous relative.  At the Chavez National Monument in Keene, CA, she talks with his son Paul Chavez and others who knew him.  The United Farm Workers Union and the Chavez Foundation cooperated with the filmmakers and endorse the movie.

Sutton Clock Shop, film produced for Etsy.com

This video was shot in Sutton Clock Shop which has been in business in New York City for over 60 years. The shop is run by Sebastian Laws, a master clockmaker, who learned his craft under the tutelage of his father, a former member of the Danish Underground in World War II and a rower who competed in the 1936 Olympics in Berlin. 

Originally located on Sutton Place in NYC, this video was shot at its location on the corner of 61st and Lexington, where it resided for 45 years. In late 2012 it moved to it's present location at 218 East 82nd Street, between 2nd and 3rd Avenue.

Sutton Clock Shop has gained a lot of publicity since the video was released. It was featured on CNN, the PBS program Marketing Warriors, the Huffington Post and the Emmy award winning PBS series, New York Originals.

Originally produced for Etsy.com, the Sutton Clock Shop video won Best Film in WNET's Reel13 short film contest and was a finalist in Shooting People's film of the month competition.
