I’ve consulted with TruthMedia Films on two documentaries and numerous interviews and shorts. I’ve edited scripts, prepped interviews, refined stories in post-production and helped on-camera talent edit themselves on the fly. (I’m also really good at calming nervous interviewees.)

In the summer of 2009 I worked with over a hundred people preparing to tell their stories as part of a fundraising campaign. For many of them it was their first experience on camera and fear nearly derailed the project.It amazed me to hear so many people claim they didn’t have a story. There’s always a story to tell if you can gain the trust to be able to ask the right questions.
The first time I spoke to Denise about doing her interview she was in tears. I worked with her to find a story she was comfortable sharing and was there the day she filmed to coach her through the process. She did a great job.
