Patsy Northcutt created this video for the Global Footprint Network by modifying one of the videos that she co-produced/directed/edited for the Pachamama Alliance Awakening the Dreamer, Changing the Dream Symposium.

I’ve known Patsy Northcutt for over 17 years. She is awesome. Thanks to her skills and creative spirit she helped us turn an initial small-scale shoot into an international production, leading to a wide use of our video. Every production we did with her, she supported professionally from soup to nuts, with care for detail and quality, always on the lookout for synergies with other organizations. Working with her vastly amplified our ability to promote our message.
