“I get to incorporate and build on my videography skills at the Hunt Institute through creating promotional videos for what we are working on with the Creative Team, and Institute as a whole.  Being able to bring the Hunt Institute’s messages and events to life visually is crucial to spreading the word about who we are and what we are working on, and I’m very glad to be a part of that process.”
– Cullen Blanchfield

Cullen has been told that he sees things in people and in the world that others often overlook.  As a filmmaker, he strives to create films that connect with the viewer both mentally and emotionally through his keen awareness of people.  It is this ability that drives him to create impactful stories that can perhaps spark creativity and thoughtfulness from his viewers to create change.  It is his goal to elevate stories through the unique opportunities video presents both conceptually and technically.
