A contemporary physician once said, “If you listen to a patient long enough they will tell you exactly what’s wrong with them.”
Mark Twain said, “It is better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than to open it and remove all doubt.”
A theologian once said, “The only people who made Job feel better were the ones who came to his side and said nothing.”
At Rock Fish Stew, we’d rather listen to others than talk about ourselves. So we’ll keep this brief:
We’re a documentary company that approaches projects with an exploratory, storyfinding impulse in which listening and searching are key. For us the greatest thrill is unearthing a story previously unknown. Our methods and outcomes might vary widely, and it might take some time to figure out which ones are best for a given subject. As a collective, we work with words, films, photographs, collected materials – whatever is called for. We craft stories and distribute them in creative ways.
We hope you’ll come along with us, and bring some ideas of your own. You can watch our work evolve at The RFS Journal.
