Director Drew Ames was inspired to make this film when he first heard about the St. Joseph Stockyards closing. “My grandpa and I sold our Angus cattle there for years. The Stockyards for a century-plus were a foundation for the whole community. It is the end of this great era in St. Joe and historically in America. This story is in our “backyard” and is personal to us, we knew we had an obligation to tell the tale.” The Coin in a Log Creative team has filmed from Missouri to Texas to California to correctly capture this story.
This documentary, “SOLD! – An American Stockyards Story”, is the debut film from Coin in a Log Creative LLC, a St. Joseph, MO based Film and Video Production company specializing in agriculture and industry across the United States.
Their next film will be “Life of a Mushroom; Picked, Prepped, and Eaten” an exploration into cultivating, foraging, and culinary delicacies of the various mushrooms of America. It is currently in production and slated for release in late Summer 2022.
