I've been a producer, freelancer, and educator specializing in nonfiction media for over 20 years. I make films together with clients, with other artists, and on my own. I teach video, film, audio production and post, as well, and consult on media projects.
As a teacher, I 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.
PEOPLE + PLACES
The Carnegie Museum of Art's Hall of Architecture commissioned this piece as part of its centennial. Gretchen Niedert produced, directed, and edited. I shot. Gretchen was great to work with, allowing her crew creative freedom within her and the client's vision. This is a trailer for a longer piece. Oh, it was at least as cold as it looks during that winter of shooting!
Have a project in mind? Need a quote for shooting, sound, or editing? Just got something to say?
