Against All Odds Productions designs and executes large-scale, crowd-sourced global projects that combine compelling storytelling with state-of-the-art technology. Pulling together teams of leading journalists and photographers (plus hundreds of thousands of members of the general public) for a day or a week to focus on emerging topics such as the global water crisis, the effect of the Internet on civilization or how the human race is learning to heal itself, the company has produced bestselling-illustrated books, TV specials, apps, exhibits and hundreds of millions of media impressions. Fortune magazine has described Against All Odds as "one of the coolest companies in America."
