The Happiness Machine

I provided the sound and some images for this award-winning documentary about an inventor in rural Iowa who lived a creative life, hoping to pass on to his kids and grandkids what he calls “the gift of place.” The film has received a great deal of critical acclaim and has screened at 30 festivals internationally.
