Dietrich, Justin, and Will are old friends who have been working on creative projects together for over a decade. Mutual interests in the arts and environmentalism brought them together, but it is their separate passions and talents that allow them to form a potent creative trio. Dietrich is an actor, film editor, and camera operator; Justin is a musician and visual artist; Will is a writer and storyteller. Together, this small team is capable of producing documentary films almost entirely in-house (a little help from their friends never hurts, of course). After years of feeling like they were always working on someone else’s story, they decided to give themselves the project they always wanted: to create a feature film about their beloved James River.
