Behind-the-Scenes Making a Documentary Series | Help Scout’s Against the Grain

Today, on a special bonus episode of 3 Clips, a replay of the live call that host Jay Acunzo held with viewers of his brand new docuseries, Against the Grain, built with the brand Help Scout.
Join Jay (ATG‘s host, writer, and co-director), producer Tyler Bouchard, and DP/editor Travis Wilber as they go inside the creative process and reflect on the journey of making a brand new show, with tons of uncertainty, a bold mission, and a tight budget.

Against the Grain is a documentary series which elevates the stories of business leaders and teams that put craft, community, and customers at the center of what they do. There’s a better way to build businesses than the typical success story of “winner take all”/high growth at all costs. ATG wants to replace that damaging yet stereotypical success story with a better model — one which inspires more people to build businesses based on shared values with their communities and customers.
