Produced and Shot: PBS Special on the Largest Dam Removal

Over the last two years, I have been working on a PBS Special about the removal of Condit Dam on the White Salmon River in Washington.

Our crew got to do some fun things, including a multi-year timelapse documentation effort, filming the dramatic explosive breach of the dam and lots of underwater salmon filming.  It’s been an incredible effort getting this show finished, a effort that paid off with a sold-out premiere event and strong TV ratings.

Though I’ve produced lots of documentary films and shot lots of TV shows, this was the first TV special that I’ve produced–hopefully the first of many!
