Our Culture is Our Strength
Proud to have been involved in the production of “Our Culture is Our Strength” (2021) documentary as the Director of Photography for the Ute Mountain Ute Tribe in Towaoc, Colorado. This film won big in the Telly Awards for video production in 2021, including 2 Golds Awards, one for Best Directing and one for Best Health & Wellness Video. It also won two silver Telly’s for my Cinematography and Aerial Drone Cinematography. This film features beautiful drone footage of the sacred cliffs and natural rock spires on the tribal land. The film features tribe members who share how learning and practicing elements of their ancestral culture not only helps them deal with challenges in their lives, but also helps them find a sense of identity and purpose.
