Share Article

Award-winning film production company, Rich Wright Productions, donates time and expertise to tell the story of Ed Jarrett's multiple quests to break his own Guinness World Record for the tallest sandcastle.

Ed Jarrett, set to begin his attempt to break his Guinness World Record for the Tallest Sandcastle (beginning April 1, 2011), stands with the award-winning documentary film producing team of Michelle Leibovitz and Rich Wright of Rich Wright Productions.

Ed Jarrett, Guinness World Record holder for the Tallest Sandcastle, has tapped the talents of Granby, Connecticut-based Rich Wright Productions to produce a documentary of his story – from his first sandcastle endeavor in 2003, which took the “tallest sandcastle” bragging rights from Finland, to his successful attempt to break his own record in 2007, which raised more than $100,000 for charity, to his current undertaking in Farmington, Connecticut to go even higher and raise even more money for those in need.

Emmy Award-winning editor and director of photography Rich Wright along with business partner, award-winning producer Michelle Leibovitz, have agreed to donate their services to produce a documentary about Ed Jarrett’s attempt to break and retain the Guinness World Record for the Tallest Sandcastle.

“Projects like this one don’t come along every day,” says Rich Wright. “It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity. There are so many stories to tell from the building of the Tallest Sandcastle to Saving Walton Pond to the way the community is coming together to support so many charities. We’re thrilled to be partnering with Ed and the rest of the team to document this great story.”

“Rich and Michelle do incredible work,” says Ed Jarrett. “We are so fortunate to have found one another. Their involvement in this project is truly the icing on the cake.”

Rich Wright Productions has produced documentary, marketing and employee communication programs for such clients as Connecticut Children’s Medical Center, ING, Henkel, ASSA ABLOY and NOAA.
