Environmental Filmmaking

Paige Dahlke '18


Out of all the places the world wide web has to offer, you ended up at my web portfolio, and I hope you find what you’re looking for! Here you’ll find all you need to know about my individual major: Environmental Filmmaking! What does my major entail, you might ask? Well, it’s all right there in the title. I have mixed together courses from media, film, and environmental studies to create a cohesive idea. My goal has been to understand how the three areas of study stand alone and how they complement each other. They ultimately come together and help me know more about making environmental documentary films that will cause social change. Film has progressively become a major avenue in which to discuss environmental issues with the public, and by combining my knowledge from different disciplines, I can use it to continue to help get eco-friendly messages across to the public through the revolutionary medium of film.
