WeRiseUP The Movie & Movement had recent launch events at 2019 Sundance Film Festival, 2019 SXSW in Austin, TX, and during the World Economic Forum in Davos. WeRiseUP was also invited by San Diego Unified School Districts, during the San Diego International Film Festival, to participate in school programs which brought WeRiseUP to over 20 high schools in San Diego in order to promote meaningful exploration for students into what their role is in creating the future of humanity.

Magazine. Michael Shaun Conaway, Director, CEO of Storyworks, and Alex Melnyk, Producer, President of Storyworks, founded the Boulder-based creative agency and production company, creating films and branding for leading companies such as NASA, Hewlett Packard, Telus, Microsoft, Gap International, and Nike.

With the world in the midst of a tremendous period of transition, our current success models aren’t adequate to support the future that is quickly emerging. WeRiseUP The Movie articulates a new model of success in the world. WeRiseUP curates an intimate inquiry to explore what it will take for humanity to create a thriving future. Transitioning between penetrating dialogue and cinematically stunning visuals accompanied by resonating music this film is a radical departure from the expert-driven documentary, into a profound personal journal of inquiry, reflection, and action.
