Let’s Play Ball… in the River?

A water stewardship shoot that made a splash

January 26, 2022 by Jazmine

When you think of Rogue Heart Media you might think of our motto, “Media that Makes a Difference” (which is exactly what we would hope for) but add “fun” or “wicked awesome” to the mix for true accuracy.

We have so many opportunities to work alongside non-profits to help craft meaningful and sensitive stories. We work with underprivileged communities, creative teams, and innovative groups that uplift so many people within our city. Aaannnd we sometimes get to hang out with giant trout mascots and raft down the Spokane River with Spokane Indians Baseball players.

In October of 2021, we donned our outdoor gear, a life jacket, and some silly Spokane Indians Baseball headbands in the name of responsible water stewardship. This project is an example of how doing meaningful work can take a detour to Fun Town. We spent the day shooting with players from the Spokane Indians baseball team and their fishy mascot, Ribby. The mission: to educate the public on the health of our river and how to keep its ecosystem clean, all while partnering with the Spokane Indians Baseball Team for outreach. Beyond lots of laughs, tripping over river rocks, and heading home in damp clothing, the highlight of the day was seeing our fearless leader, Megan, shooting video in one boat while tethered to another, flying down the Spokane River. Proving that Rogue Heartians are always up for a challenge!

We couldn’t be more proud to continue supporting our community through these impactful, yet absolutely delightfully fun ways. For more team shenanigans, check out our 2021 BTS & Blooper reel which features the events of this river shoot quite a bit, along with other fun moments throughout the year!
