Picture Farmer Films was founded by George Patterson and Deidra Dain in early 2014. Their combined talent and passion for sharing stories visually offer inspiring messages that move audiences to think mindfully and choose action over accepting the status quo. They particularly enjoy filming stories that bring awareness to the beauty, authenticity, and exquisite treasure found in nature. Through their films, they hope more people will want to conserve our world’s finite resources.
