Supporting the Arts: Outstanding on Film
Outstanding.Global is all about changing minds, worldwide. We believe in the power of film, performance, words to effect this change. Through the Arts, as counterpart to Open Hearted Leadership Training, we use true stories of those who face the challenges of exclusivity and oppression.
Our first film project is Ric Edelman’s Cheetah. Set in Iran, it tells the story of the unsung heroes standing up and standing out to protect the critically endangered Asiatic Cheetah from extinction.
We’re already a long way into our journey: the screenplay is being written, we’ve amassed a seed fund and now we have on board Oscar and BAFTA award-winning producer Gareth Ellis-Unwin whose company Bedlam Films Productions are developing Cheetah with Outstanding. Global attached as an Executive Producer.

Ric wields his writing as a force for social and environmental change. To give voice to those who would otherwise be silent. He has always done more than put pen to paper. Trees have grown from his words and ancient communities have been empowered to fight for their right to their way of life.
Ric’s drama HEATH is under option with Missing Link Films.
His next project is to adapt his stage play TIDAL WAVES as a 5-part TV series. A probing spotlight on a remote tribal people facing the blast of the 21st century.
