About Ernie

Activist, storyteller, and public servant. With ten years of experience in professional film and video work, I've dedicated my career to understanding filmmaking as truth, documentaries as cinematic fact, and journalism as a blend of the two. The tools of making this content change all the time and I look at keeping up with these progressions as a pre-requisite while keeping the story at the center. I've worked as a producer for live events, field work, documentaries, narrative projects as well as spend time in the editing room, behind the camera, and in the classroom as a art & storytelling educator. I'm always looking for new challenges whether it means being a one person crew or managing a large number of professionals.
