Co-founded in 2007 by Magee McIlvaine, Mo Materson and Chris Moore.
CHRIS grew up in Holderness, NH. A semester in rural Argentina during his junior year of high school opened his eyes to the world. Graduating Phi Beta Kappa in Hispanic Studies, Chris is interested in colonial studies. He spent last summer as a cameraman/producer for The Wild World of Summer, a New England cable TV sports show, and traveled to Venezuela to produce a documentary on President Hugo Chavez.
MO grew up outside of Boston. Graduating with honors in Religion, she recently completed a much-acclaimed thesis on the Catholic Church and its role in the genocide in Rwanda. She has done extensive research on Rwanda and has made many contacts with Rwandans. The group hopes to follow up on this project with a film in Rwanda.
Born in Canada, MAGEE spent his childhood in Eastern and Southern Africa. Attending high school in Washington DC, and college in Hartford, Connecticut, Magee strives to bridge the gaps between his childhood home and his current one. In 2001, he won a fellowship to travel to the tiny kingdom of Swaziland, in Southern Africa, where he directed, shot, and edited a short documentary film on the advantages and disadvantages of a traditional monarchial system of government in the modern world. The project opened his eyes up to the world of documentary filmmaking. He recently completed his thesis documentary on the links between griot (West African oral history and storytelling) tradition in hip hop here in the United States.
