All the clips in this short video are moments from one of the 12 feature-length films Melody has directed and/or produced since 2002, long before there were smart phones and 4K.
Melody's documentaries are noteworthy for featuring a rare intimacy with her subjects as she unearths previously hidden worlds. She works mostly solo and has the ability to get people to reveal their innermost thoughts, whether it’s the family of a child who can’t feel pain (A LIFE WITHOUT PAIN/SXSW), a former Vice President of the United States (FRITZ: THE WALTER MONDALE STORY/PBS), a physically healthy person who wants to become an amputee (WHOLE/Sundance Channel) or Eastern European college students who cook and clean for Americans on vacation (THE SUMMER HELP). Melody is also a cinematographer - she shot more than half the footage you see in the demo. She makes films about topics she cares about and is interested in exploring.
