About the Actor:

Since 1993, filmmakers Peter and Melanie Rhalter have created films about the fragile landscapes and human history of the American West. Through their independent production company, Random Walk Productions, their mission has been to develop films that inform, educate and engage viewers in comprehensive experiences of people, places and ideas. Random Walk's films offer interpretive experiences that have received numerous awards and universally positive reviews.

An avid backpacker and camper in both mountain and desert environments, Peter's travels have taken him from the Southwest's Deserts to mountain ranges across the West. He has a special love for the Grand Canyon. His interests in western history, geology and the natural world combined with his lifelong pursuits in fine art and photography lead him toward making films on natural history and environmentally-related subjects. He has been awarded gold medals for cinematography and editing.

An award-winning writer and director/producer, Melanie's longtime interests in cultural history and her early career in journalism, public relations and marketing evolved into her work as a filmmaker. Her travels in the American West have taken her from the bottom of Death Valley, through the Southwest's Red Rock country to the Montana plains and the Northern Cheyenne Reservation where she earned the name Buffalo Woman Appears (Wo'es-ta Meh-ne'va). As an independent educator, Melanie teaches and develops cultural and environmental courses for the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County.

From the Contributor:

The President of the Grand Canyon Association declared that "ECHOES THROUGH TIME: GRAND CANYON," is just beautiful, spectacularly done. The outstanding, seasonally diverse photography really sets it apart."

Former Arizona Highways Magazine editor Don Dedera writes, "This beautifully filmed multi-media statement yields compelling rewards to the viewer with effects scarcely attempted before that are in exact good taste. Eloquently written...an extraordinary creation, an insightful, instructive and inspirational work."

The internationally renowned Heard Museum’s Director Martin Sullivan noted, "ECHOES THROUGH TIME asks questions that have not been asked before, allows us to hear the perspectives of the actual people at that (historic) time and helps us understand why people seek out experiences of sacred places like the Grand Canyon."
