Since 2000, the Western Folklife Center has been working with people from throughout the rural west to produce short videos and slide shows about their lives on the land. Using the tools of digital communication, these home-made productions are simple yet elegant; they are not glossy and commercial, but from the heart. From its beginning as the Ranch Communications program, Deep West Video was born in 2005. Some videos have been selected for sale in the our online Gift Shop. Meet the filmmakers, Capture your own story and be a part of our Deep West Videos program.Deep West Video is supported by the W.K. Kellog Foundation, the R. Harold Burton Foundation and the George S. and Dolores Doré Eccles Foundation.
