Commonlink Productions filmed a mini-documentary for the Eco-Village over 2 weeks in August of 2012. The documentary production was complete and available the following month for free download and use across social media platforms like youtube. The film was used by the eco-village to help in recruiting qualified community members, attracting visitors, and participants for their educational courses.
Additional footage gathered by Commonlink Productions was also made available for future video projects. When the eco-village was fundraising 2 years later this footage and the produced mini-documentary became important resources for communicating the Eco-Village's Vision & Mission to wider audiences.
