2020 WINNER Broadcast Education Association Festival of Arts International: Award of Excellence

Zero is the story of defeat and how we react to it. Coach Armando Johnson is set to retire as the boys’ basketball coach of Central High School in Springfield, Missouri. Last season his team didn’t win a game. Zero follows the players, the coach, and the parents through a full season in search of a win as tensions mount.

Zero is the winner of the Award for Excellence for student feature documentary film at the 2020 Broadcast Education Association Festival of Arts.

Carbon Trace Productions in 2021

It is so gratifying and humbling to see all these faces because I know each one has an incredible story that we helped tell.

This is our highlight reel with all of the new faces and new stories we have told, despite the many hurdles we faced.  Not only did we learn a thing or two, but we brought student filmmakers along with us. When times get tough at Carbon Trace Productions, I try to refer back to our mission.

Carbon Trace Productions promotes a deeper understanding of people and humanitarian issues while educating students in the art of documentary filmmaking.

FIRST LOOK VIDEO: A Portrait of the Ozarks



For more than a year now,  a small, dedicated group of Carbon Trace Productions staff and volunteers have been making trips to Shannon County, Missouri, two and a half hours east of our Springfield base. The team has been conducting interviews with potential subjects for a sequel to the 1981 documentary film “A Portrait of the Ozarks,” and getting to know folks and becoming more familiar with the region.

This is the  First Look at what will ultimately be a three-year project.

We are raising money to pay for items essential to the project, such as an on-location workspace for the crew and specialized equipment.  https://carbontrace.net/donate/

Many of you have already donated to our project, and for that, I thank you. This is what your donations have helped pay for.

If you have ten minutes, I hope you will take the time to give this video a like on YouTube and/or a share on Facebook and with your friends.
