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.
Harriet Berman is a metalsmith who uses recycled consumer tins to make art. We collaborated on this gallery video to explore the earn-spend-consume-discard cycle, embodied in the circles of her teacups and saucers. (Warning to the client who doesn't provide me a deadline: I took about a year to complete the editing, but boy was it fun.)
