Project Main Details

The Shape of a River 
This is a short film (under 3 minutes) being produced for by the non-profit org, Ocean Media Institute about the Yellowstone River from the perspective of the river. The read should be relaxed and conversational, playful at times and poetic at others. It should drive home the emotional beats, as if the river were speaking personally and directly to those (human and non) who live, work, and play on the river. As the Yellowstone is the longest undammed river in the lower 48, it is a heartfelt plea to keep the river wild and unbound.

Script Details

Okay, so I've never been big on words -- guess being on the move 24/7 doesn't leave much time for conversation.

But I suppose after thousands of years, it's time I let some things surface.

Now, let's get one thing straight -- I may be old, but I'm still a wild thing;
Just look at the way I shape-shift my way from Badland to Paradise.

Some call me moody, but I prefer to think of myself as "naturally charismatic."

Sure, I can get a little feisty after a springtime snowmelt, but I also conjure the sweetest magic on a hushed summer night.

I'm by no means ready to settle down, but that doesn't mean I'm not true blue when it comes to supporting my friends -- from the fish that tickle my belly, to the insects that dance on my mist, to the geese that launch from my ice.

I nourish the cottonwoods that have grown up from my bed and share secrets with those who wade in my shallows.

And then there's you.

Sometimes I catch you looking deep into me and I wonder if you see yourself reflected there.

Whether we've worked together or played together, or just quietly enjoyed each other's company, I have always thought of us as partners -- together through the highs and the lows.

And that's what has kept me running fierce and strong all this time.

But I admit, as mighty as I seem, I'm also pretty vulnerable. Yeah, I've got my share of worries.

So now, after all this time, I'm coming to you in the spirit of kinship with one simple request.

Keep me wild.

Let me enjoy some room to roam and the freedom to shape my own course.

If you do that for me, I swear I will return season after season to take care of you with the strength and depth and resilience of all that I am --

Your Yellowstone River . . .

Your River Wild.
