Click. Draw. Click. Ray’s thighs were burning at the end of that shoot.Todd and Leah are a married couple. And they are in business together as partners in their production company, Inflatable Film. They have created so much good work, but perhaps the greatest work so far, is Big Sonia – their feature documentary about Leah’s grandmother, Sonia – a survivor of Auschwitz – who stands at 4’ 9” and packs a wallop of life, love, motivation and wisdom into her tiny frame. On today’s show, Leah and Todd talk about their craft, what it took to complete Big Sonia – and what it took to complete the circle and get distribution on PBS, where Big Sonia is currently playing across the United States until the end of the year.You can follow Leah and Todd @inflatablefilm and @bigsoniamovie on Instagram.

On today's episode host, Mark Titus and Joel talk about Joel's work as a film producer and activist. Joel's award-winning film, Sonic Sea tackles the inordinate amount of noise under the water in our oceans that are literally killing marine life, like whales.

Since 1980, he has specialized in complex law-reform litigation, arguing cases on behalf of environmental and community groups at all levels of the federal courts, including the U.S. Supreme Court. He has also led several of NRDC’s largest campaigns: to preserve the birthing lagoon of gray whales in Baja California; to protect the California State Park at San Onofre; to reduce underwater noise pollution that threatens ocean wildlife; and, most recently, to halt the construction of the environmentally destructive Pebble Mine in Alaska’s Bristol Bay. He has twice been selected California Attorney of the Year in the environmental category. From 1986 to 1990, Reynolds was an adjunct professor at the University of Southern California Law Center. Since 2012, he has served as chair of the Tejon Ranch Conservancy, one of California’s largest land trusts.

#28 - Dr. Jennifer Galvin, Public Health Scientist and Filmmaker
A public health scientist by training, Dr. Jennifer Galvin left a fast-track academic career path to pursue filmmaking. She had a knack for finding narrative in the numbers and wanted to use her research and storytelling abilities to put a face on societal problems and solutions. She was selected to the American Film Institute's 2004 Catalyst Workshop for science storytelling and screenwriting, and to the 2006 Pan Caribbean Project for Documentaries Residency at EICTV, Cuba. In 2006 she founded reelblue, an independent film production and media company based in New York. Her feature film directorial debut was the prized documentary Free Swim (2009), which continues to travel the globe to reduce youth drowning, promote diversity in ocean-related sports, and ignite community coastal conservation. While she most loves having the camera in her hands, Galvin’s ability to direct, produce, write, and shoot led her to being compared to a Swiss Army knife when named to the 2014 GOOD 100, representing the vanguard of artists, activists, entrepreneurs, and innovators from over 35 countries making creative impact. Her feature documentary The Memory of Fish (2016) was one of three Wildscreen Panda Award Best Script nominees—the highest accolade in the wildlife film and TV industry, dubbed the ‘Green Oscars’; it was also named to “The Definitive List of River Movies” by American Rivers. More recently she directed/produced the award-winning music video On My Mind (2020), starring Storyboard P and vanguard musicians Marcus Strickland, Pharoahe Monch, and Bilal, that debuted on AFROPUNK, and she produced The Antidote (2020), a feature film exploring kindness in America that qualified for an Oscar for Best Documentary. This summer Galvin produced Tuskegee Legacy Stories (2021), a 5-part public health campaign for Ad Council featuring descendants of the USPHS Syphilis Study at Tuskegee to build back trust in medicine. She is currently developing projects spanning fiction and nonfiction. Commercial to indie, documentary to fiction, moving image to print—her motivations remain fueled by the maxim “protect the vulnerable.” Check out more about Jen and her work:www.jengalvin.comwww.reelblue.comSave What You Love with Mark Titus:⁣Produced: Tyler White⁣Edited: Patrick Troll⁣Music: Whiskey Class⁣Instagram: @savewhatyoulovepodcastWebsite: savewhatyoulove.evaswild.comSupport wild salmon at evaswild.com
