Leaping Frog Films

Buried in Sawdust movie posterHow often does restoration steal the spotlight from problems and disasters? Not nearly often enough, and filmmaker Shelly Solomon has focused the energies of her company "Leaping Frog Films" on getting the word out about the positive things that are happening in our environment. Her film series "Restoration Gone Wild" is a collection of environmental movies focusing on wildlife habitat restoration and native species recovery programs. These include turning a massive pile of sawdust back into a wetlands in Discovery Bay, restoring Pinto Abalones, Olympia Oysters, a watershed in Illahee, community shellfish farming, and a contemplative look at the Elwha River just before the dams came down.

3LeapingShelly recently (Fall 2012) screened films at theaters in Port Townsend and Bremerton, WA. I attended the sold-out event at the Rose Theatre in Port Townsend, and I found Shelly's films to be both informative and fun to watch. Keep your eyes out for future screenings of her work.
