Clay Man

Student documentary project through TUMO in Yerevan, Armenia. I lead a class of 16 students on documentary film techniques and methods to produce a film about a man in a small village in Armenia who makes tonirs (used for baking lavash) by hand. As of now there are no subtitles for this film.

You Can't Shear a Wet Sheep

This is a documentary I've been working on for over a year now. It follows the work of David Kier, professional sheep shearer. We've gone to family farms, classes that he teaches, and also a Sheep and Wool Festival he participates in. We've got a few more visits to go before we can start putting this thing together.
