My name is Lynn Weissman, and I'm a Videographer, Editor, and Producer. I love mixing the art and science of video production to tell a good story. I get to be both a geek and an empathetic human being. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I make videos about all kinds of things, though I especially love shooting documentaries, artists, and the stuff of real life and fictional life. I shoot with many video cameras, including a Canon EOS C100 Mark II, 5D Mark III DSLR, a slew of Canon lenses, and a Sony PMW-200 XDCAM. I edit in Final Cut Pro and Premiere CC.
My video projects have won festival, competition, and grant awards; aired on public and cable television, and screened nationwide and in Canada. Whether I'm shooting behind the lens, editing, or producing, I have the remarkable privilege of bearing witness to many extraordinary stories and events, meeting extraordinary people, and the helping to tell their stories.
I launched Weisswoman Productions in 2002, after earning my second Master's degree, in Philanthropy and Media from the Visionaries Institute at Suffolk University, though the generosity of a full merit scholarship from actor Sam Waterston. I hold another M.S. in Public Health from UMass Amherst. My undergraduate studies were in Psychology and Biology at SUNY Albany, where I almost had a minor in English.
Born in Brooklyn, NY, raised in Queens, grew up in Albany, leaned left in Amherst, and might grow old in the Boston area. Spent my formative summers at sleep-away camps (Wel-Met and Camp Leah) up in the Catskills.
I'm an extreme commuter-cyclist and bicycle-pedestrian advocate. My awesome partner, Joel, and I live in Somerville with our rambunctious and sweet identical twin sons.
