Be a Part of YERT's Feature-Length Documentary in February 2009 by Julie E.

We've completed our travels and are now back at home in Pittsburgh and Louisville, beginning work on our full-length eco-documentary, targeting a release at the end of 2009. To that end, we are looking for volunteers to help us transcribe our 500+ hours of footage. If you'd like to be a part of creating our film and want exclusive viewing of our raw footage or a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the road trip itself, please contact Mark Dixon at and let him know that you'd like to help transcribe. You'll get to immerse yourself in all kinds of cool YERT footage that the world has yet to see...and you'll be helping us in a big way. Thanks in advance!

Please find them at to see the latest videos or to let them know about any environmental issues you know of in the states yet to come: Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana, Wyoming and Alaska.

Looking forward to hearing from you!
