We are Twisted Stave Media because that is exactly how we approach our projects. We don’t try to mold it to some preconceived notion of what we think it should be, but rather, seek out the nuances that make it engaging and memorable. Whether it’s a full length documentary or a short tutorial, we strive to get at the things that make it unique. In other words, we tell stories that matter.
Check out some of our recent works below for a little taste of what we mean.

I never tire of reading Leopold’s writing, so elegant and utterly simple; so poignant and true. But the above quote has always bothered me a little. Not because I have any particular issue with it but because it is so true, and truth is often hard to face. It’s like when someone uninvitedly points out some fault about yourself that you know to be true but, for the most part, have succeeded in keeping tucked safely away in your subconscious. But now it’s out and like any personal fault suddenly called to your attention, you either deal with it or you hide from it.
I got into conservation media because I’m not the kind to hide from a problem, especially one that might affect my children and theirs, as so many conservation matters are likely to do. As a wildlife biologist I am intimately aware of the “wounds” that Leopold hints at. After making the assertion in the quote above, Leopold goes on to say, “Much of the damage inflicted on land is quite invisible to laymen.” I’ve made it my mission to, not only give voice to the problems that face conservation, but to bring those stories to life.
I believe there is a beautiful story in every conservation challenge. As conservationists, it often seems that we’re swimming against the tide; that the masses, with their cheap utilities and consumer culture, don’t seem to care. Truth is, they don’t care.. At least not yet. They don’t care because they don’t know. It’s our job to bring our message to their attention in an inspiring way. It’s our job to show them the beauty, for it is beauty that will inspire action.
