Autumn Tarleton - Video Producer, Writer/ Director, Florida
Autumn Tarleton grew up with sand between her toes on the beaches of Clearwater, Florida. After escaping the grasps of adulthood for a few years by hiding in China, Europe, and Central America, and existing off her herbal nutrition and massage therapy knowledge, she decided to attend The Documentary Institute at the University of Florida where she will earn her master’s degree in 2006.
The encouragement of her friends and family led her to find herself in a career where the foundation of digital video production remains but the walls are continuously re-built with whatever she fancies to produce: travel diaries, environmental action videos, and documentaries. In the future she hopes to produce music videos, “mockumentaries” and fiction.
In transit from Gainesville, Florida—home of freshwater springs—to Brooklyn, New York—home of not-so-fresh smelling streets—she hopes to continue producing in the summer and snow-birding in the winter. She enjoys the written word, the sound of music and the German Beer Purity Law of 1516.
