National Park Experience


A Film Series

IMG_3270.JPG

NPX celebrates powerful human experiences in the national parks through 10 short films aimed at the post-cable generation. 

 

Our Mission

Even though millions of Americans love and visit the national parks, there are still entire communities and an increasing number of youth that don't see themselves as part of the national park story. By making these films, we're creating an invitation to every American-- regardless of age, race, religion, politics, or economic status-- to embrace and become part of "America's Best Idea." Because in 2016, the National Park Service turns 100 years old, and we can't think of a better way to celebrate!

Our Films

Our debut film, "Love in the Tetons," is currently screening at special events and film festivals across the country. To see that schedule and a description of this story and other films we're pursuing, click here

Producing a film series takes a village.

Getting to where we are today meant rallying 431 Kickstarter backers, the rock-star company REI, hundreds of supportive friends and colleagues, dozens of NPS staff, two amazing film subjects, a talented and passionate NPX team, proud and encouraging parents, two patient and loving husbands, and one blessedly adaptable little toddler.

We have so many victories to celebrate. But we still have a long way to go. We need to:

  • Find partners who can help finance the next 8 films
  • Secure a distribution platform and funding
  • Keep churning out content
  • Keep building our audience
  • Continue developing our amazing story leads 

WANT TO HELP? Spread the word about NPX through your social media channels, professional networks, blogs, and personal conversations. Know someone at Ford? LL Bean? AmEx? Southwest? Know of a foundation that supports large-scale media projects like ours? An angel donor who wants nothing more than to see parks protected beyond 2016? Tell them about NPX! Funding these films doesn't simply mean funding films. It means sharing important, human stories with millions of Americans who need to hear them. It means ensuring that the national parks stay relevant and protected into their next 100 years. 

But we know we don't have to tell you that. You get it already. 

Email Amy or Dana if you think you have a lead. Thank you for helping to keep NPX in motion!

Behind the Scenes

Behind the Scenes


One of the toughest parts of filmmaking...

... is having to leave so much fantastic content on the cutting-room floor-- awesome quotes, hilarious moments, behind-the-scenes epiphanies, and all those fascinating tangents that just don't quite fit into the final edit. Thankfully, we have this thing called a "blog"-- and it's exactly where we'll be keeping all those little pieces alive. Check out our latest insights here
