WHAT I DID
I recently produced a video for Rewire.org that combined two passions of mine: mushrooms and hiking. I got connected with a wonderful character who lived out in Washington State's Olympic Peninsula and was a mushroom fanatic. He recently received a science grant to examine the DNA of specific mushroom species and the old-growth forest served as his backyard. I spent a day with him as he led friends through the forest foraging for mushrooms and revealing their mysterious properties that can help save our planet. I produced this piece one-man band style and also wrote an article to accompany the video (https://www.rewire.org/video/mushrooms-steve-ness/).
