I've been a producer, freelancer, and educator specializing in nonfiction media for over 20 years. I teach video production courses as a Visiting Lecturer at the University of Pittsburgh, and make films for clients, with other artists, and on my own.
As a teacher, I attempt to convey hard concepts clearly,
and bring the joy of creativity into the classroom.
The same goes for production, with good results:
a Student Emmy out of grad school and numerous
other awards and screenings on TV and in festivals.
Let's not mystify things: documentaries are entertainment.
They simply draw from real life instead of imagination.
My trust is in the vitality of real people, real places, and
actual stories as the stuff of an engaging film.
TRAILER FOR UGANDA FILM
I cut this trailer for a film we were going to call Kony 2021, a revisiting of the civil war-torn lives of Ugandans who were briefly spotlighted by an American viral video campaign in 2012. The pandemic got in the way, and the film has changed. Same general subject, but the film, nearing completion, is now called Four Women of Gulu Town.
