|Elizabeth Elson is a documentary filmmaker with over fifteen years of experience producing and production managing documentaries for television, non-profits, and private interests.
Her documentary interests are roused primarily by a curiosity about how people choose and negotiate their identities and a desire to uncover what motivates seemingly ordinary people to express themselves in extraordinary ways. Subjects of previous short films have included: New Yorkers who use the outside of their homes as forums for their personal artwork and how three New Yorkers – international artist DJ Spooky, avant-garde composer LaMonte Young, and sonic architects Bill and Mary Buchen – have used sound art to alter spaces in New York City.
Elizabeth’s television credits include Production Managing a five-part series on the New York City criminal justice system for A & E, Executive-Producing a three-part series on prison culture for The Learning Channel, and Executive Producing a three-part series on prison health issues for Discovery Health. Other credits include segment producing for and supervising post-production on an 18-part Annenberg Foundation-funded series on arts collaborations in the middle school classroom and producing for
