Description

Betting the Farm is the story of a group of Maine dairy farmers who–dropped by their national milk company–are suddenly confronted with the real possibility of losing their farms. Banding together, the farmers launch their own milk company. Farmers Vaughn Chase, Richard Lary, and Aaron Bell–along with their families–struggle to make ends meet as they get the company off the ground. But faced with slow sales and mounting bills, can the farmers hang together long enough for the gamble to pay off? Or will they be left worse off than before?

    Amazing insects made from recycled objects come to life in this science-inspired nature movie from independent filmmaker Steve Belfer of “Spongebob Squarepants” fame. Watch these bugs jump, crawl, buzz, and transform, all set to a cool soundtrack. There are nearly a million species of insects in the world and some of them included in this film are; praying mantis, butterfly, caterpillar, leaf-hopper, and honey-bee. Hand-painted, kinetic sculptures take flight through puppetry, stop-motion, and clever editing.
