Zumafilmz Documentary and Inspirational Film

Zumafilmz is an independent film company that specializes in documentary and motivational films. Currently, we are shooting a documentary called "My Place on the Planet." The focus of the film is life in small towns, emphasizing the important role communities play in American culture. Six towns under the population of 10,00 are being featured. They are: Social Circle, Georgia; Greensburg, Kansas; Anthony, New Mexico; Port Townsend, Washington; Clyde, Texas; and Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania. These choices were made in the effort to select towns that are diverse in location, economic status, and ethnic aspects. In our search, we realized every town has an interesting history, special people and a story to tell. "My Place on the Planet" is really the story of rural America and its amazing people.


We wrapped up filming in December and are blown away by all of the fascinating interviews you gave us. Thank you to everyone who participated and Happy New Year!

Thank you again to everyone in Social Circle, Georgia who made our trip a success!


Enjoying our last two days in Social Circle, GA. Thank you for your southern hospitality!


Another great day of interviewing the people of Social Circle, GA!


Summer vacation time! This year, consider visiting a small town. You will be amazed at what you find. Visit our website for a glimpse of some of the great small towns we have visited filming My Place on the Planet!

It started with a conversasion about what we would like to see, about dialogue we enjoy sharing, and about topics we would like to explore. Because we are small and independent our vision remains clear.


We are half through shooting for My Place on the Planet. In May we shot in the sixth small town, Anthony, NM. In the fall we will get back to each town again for our final shots. The experience of meeting so many wonderful people and of being welcomed in such a warm way all over the country has reinforced my belief in the will of America. I started this project because I wanted to show how rich America is in human capital. Now I am in love with AMERICA.


Planning another great trip to Social Circle, Georgia for June 11-16. Lots of great interviews lined up!


Welcome to the new Zumafilmz page. In the coming days we will be posting photos and videos from our current project, My Place on the Planet. Keep coming back for information about what we are doing.
