Conversation with a Conservationist

July 2021

Producer, Director, Director of Photography, Editor, Composer

This was the beginning of my freelance work as I began to establish myself as a documentary filmmaker and media specialist. For this project, I partnered with the Sally Manzara Interpretive Nature Center in Lake Elmo, Minnesota to uplift the findings of their summer intern, Grace. This project tested my ability to problem solve and create on the fly as I shot verité scenes of Grace working and had to manage my camera equipment in the great outdoors. The work I did on this project laid the foundation for my work in documentary filmmaking.
