AN OLD MAN’S GAME

DOCUMENTARY SHORT

2019 Telly Award Winner



Growing Christmas trees may seem relatively simple, but there’s a lot that goes into it. However, for this farmer, though the work is grueling and relentless—it’s a passion. Fighting age and nature, Mel Koelling continues to find a way forward, finding purpose in the enduring value of his work.

This film was created in-house by the Taproot team and directed by his son, Karl Koelling.
