The Shape of a River


The Shape of a River

In 2016 MARS teamed up with Ocean Media Institute (OMI) to tell a story about the Yellowstone River. Conceptualized by MARS and creatively executed by OMI, The Shape of a River is an exquisite piece of cinematography illuminating the power and fragility of the Mighty Yellowstone.


This collaborative effort has been featured in the International Wildlife Film Festival in Missoula, the American Rivers and Greater Yellowstone Coalition’s Wild Rivers Film tour and the Wildlife Conservation Film Festival. It’s a powerful outreach tool reaching thousands with moving imagery and heart felt stories. It’s helped to illustrate MARS’ Channel Migration Easement work along the Yellowstone and start dialog about this cherished ecosystem. Click the image to the right or here to view the full film.
