Humboldt County’s natural beauty is once again garnering attention with the travel guide Frommer’s giving the region’s tall trees a shout-out in a slideshow and National Geographic featuring the short film Redwood about — as you might guess — Redwood National and State Parks on its website.

National Geographic’s team, which is curating cinematic fare for its Short Film Showcase, plucked the work by brothers and filmmakers Will and Jim Pattiz as one of the featured pieces.

“We look for work that affirms National Geographic's belief in the power of science, exploration, and storytelling to change the world,” the magazine’s website states.

Redwood is part of the Pattiz brothers’ "More Than Just Parks" film project, which they say on their website was “born out of their love for the national parks and enthusiasm for engaging multimedia.”

“The goal of our project is to share the wonders of our national parks with as many people as we can, thereby ensuring their continued protection and enjoyment for generations to come,” the brothers write. “We plan to accomplish this goal through visually stunning short films, engaging online interactions, and breathtaking imagery. Eventually, we plan to create short films covering each park.”
