A post with the new film I made for The One Language Project. Many more to come over the next few weeks in different styles – all related to the human/non-human animal connection. In other exciting news, Mass. General Hospital has accepted the proposal to show the portraits of dogs and accompanying owner essays in the Yawkey Clinic in 2013. I am so grateful for this opportunity to share this powerful and healing work in that environment.

One Language Project: Stories which show our kinship with other species

Last week I studied with Bob Sacha at Maine Media Workshops in a multi-media masterclass where we worked on condensing interviews into two minute stories. In the process of the project, I discovered that Robin Elms who performs at-home euthanasia for pets in Maine, would make a wonderful subject for a larger documentary about what care-taking for a pet really means and the implications for how we care-take for one another especially as we grow older.

About naturestage

Miranda Loud is the Founder and Artistic Director of the non-profit NatureStage based in Waltham, MA, and is an interdisciplinary artist - classical singer/organist/filmmaker/photographer and environmentalist. She writes about the vital need for education to include a more heart-centered approach to studying other species that leads to a sense of stewardship. Naturestage creates works that foster empathy and kinship with other species, using the emotional power of storytelling in different art forms, mainly film, photography and music. She is also a public speaker on art and social change. Her current projects include The One Language Project, Park Dreams, The Elephant Project, and Elephantasia which all use different art forms to encourage a mind shift in how we relate to other species by asking "How would the world be different if we viewed other species as someones instead of somethings? If, instead of drawing lines, we drew circles?"
