Juliet Brown is a self-shooting Director/Producer of individual documentary films. Growing up in multi-cultural Singapore shaped her interest in ethnographic film. During her Media Studies BA she had her first filmmaking experience as a production assistant in Cambodia, giving a poetic voice to conflict resolution films about the Khmer Rouge genocide.
Julietв’s interest in traditional skills later took her to Maine to apprentice as a wooden boat builder and collect oral histories from characters along the coast for her DVD, Peapods of the Maine Coast. There she built wooden boats and worked as a carpenter. She lived on an engineless 26ft wooden boat and sailed and worked in Bermuda and the Caribbean.
Juliet then worked as an Associate Producer, Researcher and Assistant Editor for Discovery Channel and as a Shooting AP and Editor making shorts about iconic characters in Midcoast Maine.
Her documentary Keepers of the Trail was about traditional winter travel on snowshoes in Labrador, Canada. For a month she pulled a tent and wood stove behind her on toboggans filming in arctic conditions.
In 2011 Juliet completed The National Film & Television School’s Documentary Direction MA. Her graduation film, Noah’s Canoe was short-listed for the Royal Television Society’s Post-Graduate Factual Awards in 2011.В
Ecocide: Voices from Paradise is her first feature.
