“2 Miles” Concept Trailer

For over 120 years, Cleveland’s Train Avenue has existed virtually unchanged. Tucked away in a valley out of plain eyesight, the two mile stretch of road is notoriously known as the illegal garbage dumping spot in the city where tons of trash are routinely discarded without repercussion.

Petumentaries | “The Wendy Effect” (P004)

If a picture is worth a thousand words, how many is a video worth?

Pets give us unconditional love, loyalty and companionship and we benefit tremendously by sharing our homes and lives with them. They are more than just animals – they are family, who often make us better human beings – physically, mentally and emotionally. 

So, when we lose them to old age and/or illness, we find solace in our home videos, photographs and other items to remember them by. This is the foundation for how this service – “PETUMENTARIES by River Fire Films“, was created, making it an invaluable investment for anyone who has ever loved, and been loved by, a pet.
