AMY J GARDNER
I’m an experienced producer/director and journalist with a background in both digital and broadcast production. I can deliver high-quality videos from pitch to publishing: shooting, scripting and editing.
I’ve worked for Channel 4 News where I made digital documentaries on international affairs stories, ranging from Poland’s LGBT-free zones to Colombia’s disappeared protestors, and the Afghan girls football team. The TV series I produced for US network, Univision, was nominated for a Peabody award. And I’ve recently directed, filmed and produced a half-hour documentary for the Unreported World series on violence against girls in Guatemala.
I’ve lived in Madrid, Miami, London and Lisbon, and love learning about cultures and their quirks. I’m passionate about making human-led and social justice stories that really connect with audiences.
I edit in Avid and Premiere Pro, and shoot on my Sony A7iii.
