Emmy Award for Driftless Film

The producers of the documentary short, Mysteries of the Driftless, took home an Emmy Award for “Outstanding Achievement in Documentary Programs” at a posh gala in downtown Chicago. Hosts of the event included Tamron Hall, a co-host on the Today Show (NBC); Ginger Zee, meteorologist from Good Morning America (ABC); with special celebrity guest host, television and film actor, Larenz Tate, Rush (USA Network), House of Lies (Showtime) and Gun Hill (BET).

New Film Project Launched

Producers of the Emmy-winning Driftless documentary, Mysteries of the Driftless, embark on a new film project to feature the scientific puzzles, majestic beauty, and abundant outdoor adventure in the Driftless Region. While the first film was produced through a partnership of Mississippi Valley Conservancy (MVC) and Untamed Science, Driftless Environmental Education Project, LLC (DEEP) has replaced MVC for this new project. However, the two producers formerly with MVC are leading the new effort.

Filming has Begun on New Feature-Length documentary

Although the majority of filming for Decoding the Driftless is anticipated to take place in 2016, Producer Tim Jacobson has begun filming, including capturing dramatic footage of Raptor Resource Project’s John Howe and Amy Ries rappelling down 500-foot-high cliffs over the Mississippi River during banding of peregrine falcon chicks. The dramatic story of the successful reintroduction of the peregrine falcon to the Driftless Region will be a key part of the new film.
