We are excited to share our latest project with you, documenting and producing videos for Rise, an incredible program that finds brilliant people who need opportunity and supports them as they work to serve others for life
Rise is an initiative of Schmidt Futures and the Rhodes Trust, and is the anchor program of a $1 billion commitment from Eric and Wendy Schmidt to find and support global talent. The goal of the program is to identify and support individuals who have the potential to make a positive impact on the world, regardless of their background or circumstances.
Working on this project has beenĀ a real privilege. We had the opportunity to meet and film some of the most inspiring and talented individuals from all around the world. They come from diverse backgrounds, but what they all have in common is their passion and dedication to making a positive impact in their communities and the world.

One of the things that stood out to us while working on this project is the importance of giving back and making a difference in the world. The individuals featured are not just successful in their own fields, but they also go above and beyond to give back and make a positive impact in their communities. It was truly inspiring to see the impact that these individuals are making and to be a part of telling their stories.
We are thrilled to have had the opportunity to work on this project and to be a part of bringing the Rise program to the world.
We are proud to be a part of such a meaningful and impactful initiative and look forward to continuing to document and share the stories of those who are making a difference in the world.
