Learn more about Maps for Good

This short film is tells the story of Marty Schnure, a Middlebury alumnus who, with her partner Ross Donihue, set about to map the new Patagonia Park, which has been in development over the past ten years by Conservacion Patagonica. Marty and Ross received a Patagonia Environmental Grant and National Geographic Young Explorers Grant to complete their work in Patagoina. We spent a week in the park mapping new trails with Marty and Ross and learning about the park, which is an exceptionally ecologically diverse tract of land home to all the region’s original species.

This short film is part of a project between Seedlight Pictures and Middlebury College to celebrate their decade-long fundraising campaign that supported a multitude of programs and student endeavors. The culmination of this was a 15-minute short film telling the story of the last decade through the eyes of exceptional alumni making tangible change around the world. We roamed from Vermont to DC, New York, Patagonia, Chile, and Chennai, India, following cartographers, entrepreneurs, researchers and human rights activists in their work. My role in this project was cinematographer, producer and editor of the primary film.
