About Me

Cinematographer. Filmmaker. Storyteller. 
THE BEGINNING
It was a coincidental sign-up. Without knowing the importance it would take in her life, Penelope chose Film 101 as a final elective in high school. She picked up a camera, and suddenly it all clicked in to place. She knew, then and there, that this was what she wanted to do for the rest of her life. Being behind the camera provided a sense of place and belonging, an instant desire to learn as much as she could about the craft of filmmaking. 
THE PROCESS
Studying the art of filmmaking was largely a collaborative yet independent process. Taking every advantage and every opportunity she could, Penelope gained traction in successfully creating multiple genres of film. Working as a PA for production companies, spending her spare time creating short videos, completing class projects through the use of film, and taking multiple video jobs for the university, Penelope found her voice through the filming and telling of stories. 
THE FUTURE
Passion. Knowledge. Creation. Penelope has an eye to see things in a different perspective and visualize the way a story wants to be told. Her goal is to not only create, but to continue learning, continue collaborating, and continue mastering the craft. Through film, she hopes to show the world the small and wonderful parts of the world that you might not notice.
