In the spring of 2018, Rulon Wood, professor of film at Boise State, came to Marla Hansen, professor of dance, and myself, to discuss a collaborative project which would utilize the three of us and our respective departments. A grant had just become available from the newly formed School of the Arts with the purpose of encouraging collaboration between departments within the School. We applied for, and won, the grant to fund this project. Each piece of the project was filmed in a different location in Idaho: Bruneau Sand Dunes, forests and rivers near Lowman, and City of Rocks.
