The path to my fixed purpose is laid with iron rails, whereon my soul is grooved to run. Over unsounded gorges, through the rifled hearts of mountains, under torrents’ beds, unerringly I rush! Naught’s an obstacle, naught’s an angle to the iron way! - Captain Ahab, Moby Dick

ABOUT US

Iron Way Entertainment, founded by Kelly Cox & Lucas Longacre, has been directing and producing digital series for Fortune 500 companies since 2006.


They created The Original Fare, an award-winning food adventure show entering its fourth season with PBS, allowing them to get their hands dirty with immersive food journalism: Coffee production in Colombia, subsistence & commercial fishermen in Kodiak, Alaska, and Dirty Bird: The Story of Chicken in America, which continues to amass over hundreds of thousands of views.

 

Iron Way knows how to share the stories of brands they love: Dave’s Killer Bread and their extensive work in Second Chances, Pacific Foods and their commitment to scale & practice, 

even tourism boards who work tirelessly to promote the indigenous ingredients and cultures that make their areas unique. 

 

In 2014, Iron Way made their feature debut with the Microsoft-funded documentary, Big Dream, which followed seven young women from around the world who will stop at nothing to achieve their dreams in science & technology. Big Dream was selected as part of the American Film Showcase and is currently the highest film in demand, bringing the producing team to countries around the world on behalf of The US State Dept. Big Dream also screened at SxSW Edu, UN Women, the Napa Valley Film Festival, and over hundreds of community events around the globe. 

 

Iron Way started in New York City, ventured to the scenic beaches of Southern California, but is now proud to call Portland, OR home base.
