In our Q2 2018 NEWSLETTER you'll find highlights from our most memorable moments, which includes quality time with our favorite Avengers, interviews with some of the most brilliant cancer scientists in the world and working with Fleet Week, the time-honored annual celebration of the US Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard.

2018 continues to be an amazing and challenging year full of growth for MDC Productions. We continue to expand our partnerships across countless verticals -- working hard to support children battling cancer and other serious illnesses; to raise awareness and funding for cancer research; promote adoption awareness; team up with organizations dedicated to improving the U.S. foster care system and reaching out to state agencies to help introduce a new platform designed to help combat human trafficking. As always, we are proud to support the law enforcement community and all branches of the U.S. armed forces.

This spring we were working hard to cultivate new friendships and form new collaborations, while at the same time staying true to our roots and remaining committed to strengthening our existing relationships with many longtime partners. We were truly humbled to work with Dr. Samuel Waxman, a brilliant oncologist who is held in the highest esteem across all corners of the globe for his groundbreaking contributions to the field of cancer research. We were proud to attend a special Tribeca Film Festival event commemorating the 20-year anniversary of Schindler's List that was attended by Academy Award-winning director Steven Spielberg and famed cast members Sir Ben Kingsley, Caroline Goodall and our dear friend Liam Neeson. Movies like this remind us of the power of storytelling and also our responsibility to learn from past mistakes and to try to do as much good as we can with the time we're given.

It's this passion for trying to understand and improve the human condition that drives us forward as we continually strive to create unique opportunities, plan unforgettable events and produce compelling video content with the power to educate, inspire and mobilize countless more. As always, we are forever grateful to the incredible friends, colleagues, collaborators and mentors we've been privileged to meet along the way.

Special thanks to my teammates Chris Drozdowski, Liz Spranzani, Ashley Faison, John Hedlund, Greg Jolley and Francesco Nuzzi whose combined talent, experience and insight makes all things possible.
