About Us

Carbon Trace Productions is a documentary project by Dr. Andrew Cline and the Media, Journalism & Film Department at Missouri State University. The production crew recently finished its first feature-length project — Downtown — a documentary film about the emerging trend of Americans choosing to move away from the suburbs in search of a new American Dream in re-developing urban centers. Downtown recently screened at the 2016 New Urbanism Film where it won the Best Urbanism Sociology Film award. The team also produced a documentary short related to Downtown called Shared Spaces — an official selection at the 2015 New Urbanism Film Festival. Production has begun on a second feature-length documentary about the student debt crisis. The team is finishing post-production on a documetnary short about the Trans-Siberian Rail Road focusing on the stereotypes Russians and Americans have about each other.
