It all started when…

Hello, and thank you for visiting our web site. My name is Melissa Kirkendall and I am the founder of Little Village, Big Mountain.

Little Village, Big Mountain started out as a title for the feature length scripted project we are doing in Ecuador now called The Vastvity Experiment. It comes from a saying the Ecuadorian’s use to describe strength in community to overcome obstacles. It is a different way of saying “It takes a village.”

I believe it perfectly describes the philosophy behind our films as we are a group of creative collaborators working together to create compelling, meaningful and inspiring films about other people working to improve lives in villages all over the world.

If you’d like to collaborate with us, know more about our projects or learn how to be a part of our village, click on the link below.
