A Denver institution in providing services for the poor, homeless and addicted.
The Rescue Mission needed a new way of communicating the important work they were doing to help current and potential financial supporters get closer to how lives are transformed through the organization’s work.
We created a 26-minute documentary following the triumphs and struggles of a group of recovering meth, crack and alcohol addicts training for the Colfax Marathon though the Rescue Mission’s “New Life” rehab program. Titled “Fall Away” based on a song written by team captain Nick Sterner for his son, also a team member going through the program, we followed individuals on the team for over four months and to hear their stories about addiction and how the Rescue Mission is helping to literally save their lives. (The version of the film shown here is shortened from the full edit.)
Work produced by Documentary For Hire Productions, a production company co-founded by Rich Miller and the precursor to studio1143.
