How I Made It

Friday, April 17, 1:45 pm PST

Zoom here

Join the Stanford Storytelling Project for our Spring Quarter series, How I Make It. Each Friday session will feature a different SSP alum or former staffer working as a professional storyteller. That storyteller will pull back the curtain on one of their productions for outlets like Radiolab, 99 Percent Invisible, NPR, National Geographic, Reuters, and more. 

This Friday April 17, we’ll be joined by Austin Meyer ’14. Austin is a documentary filmmaker, photographer, and podcaster. His films focus on international development, health, and human rights, and have been published by National Geographic, The Atlantic, The New York Times, POLITICO, and Slate among others.

Austin will be sharing how he made The Carpenter, a short documentary set in Zambia. The Carpenter was published in the National Geographic Short Film Showcase, The Atlantic Select series, and screened at the American Documentary Film Festival.
