This Place

Following on the heels of “The Build”, we continued our experimentation with a film and an interactive journal that explores the richly cultured Pacific Northwest coastline with photography, a short film and journals. 


Our approach to production matched the spontaneity and pace of the coast itself. We planned a quick and agile documentary-style shoot with only a few pre-planned characters and locations. 

To feel the Oregon Coast's magic–it’s hard to define–we sought out those who cherish it in different ways and for different reasons. From writers, fishermen, local business owners, tourists, teachers, students, environmentalists, surfers, and true “coasties,” we met many who call this sometimes fickle landscape home.
