About Carbon Trace Productions
Carbon Trace Productions is a documentary project associated with Dr. Andrew Cline's Carbon Trace weblog -- about the future of urban life -- and the Media, Journalism & Film Department at Missouri State University. The production crew is currently finishing work on its first, feature-length project -- Downtown -- a documentary film reporting on the emerging trend of Americans choosing to move away from the suburbs in search of a new American Dream in re-developing downtowns. The team produced the documentary short Shared Spaces in 2015 that was an official selection at the 2015 New Urbanism Film Festival. Pre-production has begun on a second feature-length documentary about the student debt crisis.

Please share your thoughts and suggestions about our project. And share your home movies! We're looking for 8mm home movies from the 50s and 60s depicting life in the suburbs.
