Peter Swanson, President

Chief among these is his work as series director on “Water - the Drop of Life.” This six-hour series is a global look at the world’s fresh water supply.

There is no way we could do what we do without some really terrific partners. Here are some of the wonderful people and organizations that help create amazing content.
New Water ReSources
At New Water ReSources, we challenge conventional thinking about water. Through exhibits, media, and behind-the-scenes project development and management, we gently invite people to change their mental models, so that they see new connections and start thinking about and using water differently.
Bridge8 produces engaging animations, infographics and illustrations to enhance the understanding of complex topics.
We focus on Product/Process Visualization for marketing, training, and speaker support. We don’t shoot video, make web pages, or animate robots fighting to the death; we focus on creating visualizations that communicate the uniqueness and often difficult-to-explain features of products and processes.
GlobalEyes Productions produces TV-programs, documentaries and commissioned films on social, human and environmental issues. We produce for broadcasters, corporations, NGO’s and governments.
People are always at the centre of each film. Our style is critical, but with a positive image of individual people and the world. Our films are not about processes, systems or procedures but about the impact they have on people in countries, situations or corporations. We shoot on, under and above the ground from the grassroots and on the work floor. We’ve worked on all continents in boardrooms, palaces, homes, fields, cities and slums.
