Bucky on Parade

Directed by Clint Thayer
Documentary Short
USA | 27 min | 2019


Bucky on Parade was a free public art event featuring 85 life-size Bucky Badger statues throughout Madison and Dane County May 7–September 12, 2018. Local and regional artists transformed these Bucky statues into unique works of art.

The Madison Area Sports Commission produced the event, with support from the Greater Madison Convention & Visitors Bureau and in partnership with the University of Wisconsin-Madison, University of Wisconsin Athletics, and Wisconsin Foundation & Alumni Association. Event proceeds supported Garding Against Cancer, Madison Area Sports Commission and other community charities.



The Book of Birdie is a peek in to the mysteries and strangeness of coming of age as a weird girl. Storytelling through visuals, psychology and the imaginative power of magical realism is the heart of my approach. The film has an all female cast and 70% female crew, and seeing better representation in filmmaking is a cause I’m passionate about.

Champions: The Story of K Cancer

Directed by Issac Smith
Documentary Short
USA | 4 min | 2020


K Cancer is more than a softball team. They use their platform to raise support for families battling childhood cancer in the stateline community, redefining what it means to be a ‘champion’.



We follow our protagonists as they develop a resistance strategy that matches the level of their opponents – taking their effort to South America, Europe and beyond. Their task is to make local battles an International concern and finally expose criminal corporations responsible for serious crimes. Our protagonists participate in the creation of alliances with communities in Latin America – the Global Alliance For The Rights Of Nature – the Indigenous Women Treaty and a renewable energy network bringing solar power to Indigenous communities.

Our film invites white and privileged people to follow the call from Indigenous communities. The direct relation between man and nature presents itself as a way out of our colonial imprint and begin the journey towards rediscovering our natural roots. Our film postulates that Indigenous people are facing the same challenge as all of us. The destruction of natural environments causes a disconnection because nature is no longer safe to inhabit. Our film promotes an intercultural dialogue by showing how non-Indigenous and Indigenous people come together (as shown during the “Cowboys and Indian Alliance” in Washington, the “People’s Climate March” in New York, the “Healing Walk” in Northern Alberta and the COP21 in Paris).

With vast experience in the digital film and video production business, I believe there’s always something new to learn and I’m always looking for innovative ways to creatively meet the challenges of the industry. Never forget, you need to change as the game changes. However, as much as technology changes, one thing remains the same, it’s all about effectively telling stories of who we are, where we’ve been and were we’re going. Life is very short, take time to look around and breath it all in.
