Professional Film & Video
Two main phases here: a set of films for National Geographic that I researched and wrote in the 1980s; and starting in the 1990s, videos that I produced at Oregon State University, usually as producer, director, editor, writer, and often videographer.
Selected National Geographic educational films
From 1985 to 1992 I wrote six films working with the filmmaker James Larison and his wife and co-producer, Elaine. Four of these were for the National Geographic Society (NGS) and intended for secondary school students. For their time, they introduced topics that were new and foreward-looking. Details about them can be read on YouTube.
Selected videos for Oregon State University
Unlike the NGS films (above) that were shot on 16mm film, the selections below were all shot using the newer technology of professional video equipment and computer-based "nonlinear" editing. I was eager to learn all aspects of video production, and fortunately the director of the Oregon Sea Grant program, where I worked, supported my initiative. Starting in the mid-1990s and continuing for 20 years, I was involved in making about two dozen documentary and educational videos. A diverse few are linked below.
