Hey, I'm Cami!
Los Angeles, California
A number of years ago, I applied to the Los Angeles Police Department. At the panel interview, the lead interviewer started off with "Well…I told my colleagues we have quite the Renaissance woman here...." She was clearly referring to the fact that my resume reflects many of the different journeys I've undertaken in my life. I have been an elf at Santa’s Village, a student, ski instructor, actress, marketing director, student (again), sales representative and filmmaker, but if I had to describe myself only one way, I'd say I'm a storyteller. And I do believe, all my other journeys up to this point have informed and will continue to expand my storytelling as I have more adventures.
I made my first film, a feature-length documentary entitled, STORE in 2004-05. It had a solid festival run winning Best Documentary at both the Victoria Independent Film and Video Festival and the Collingsworth Film Festival in 2006. STORE was offered distribution by Maitland Primrose Group after being placed on Moving Pictures Magazine Best Documentaries of 2006 list.
Additionally, I completed my MFA in Documentary Film from Vermont College of Fine Arts in April 2016. My thesis, Bottom of the 9th a short subject documentary is just beginning its festival run. After shooting 3 potential endings for the film over the past 6 months, I am officially in post-production on Throw Like A Girl! And because life isn’t always linear and tidy, I’m also in pre-production on my next project LIVE…r, which may become a documentary series about organ donation, and about to jet off to Russia to join “The Circus” with the Untitled Circus Project.
