FISHER.

I am a storyteller and filmmaker living in Seattle by way of New York City and Los Angeles.

 

My latest design accomplishments include the Netflix feature doc "Dick Johnson Is Dead" (shortlisted for the 2021 Academy Awards) and the narrative-doc hybrid "Slugfest" with executive producers the Russo Brothers.

Recently I wrote, designed, and directed the sci-fi love story "Hello, World"; directed the animated short "The 49th Day", art directed the period feature "Martin Eden", and designed the short films "The Faces Pentaptych" and "I Miss Your Face".

In 2017, along with my creative partner Kristy Richman, I co-created and developed the seven-episode short-form series called "TableTalk" which was distributed by Fullscreen Media.

 

My short "Backtrack" received a jury commendation at Filminute 2016 and my work can be seen in the films "The Sunlit Night", "American Invitation", "Hapa", "Manifest", "Don't Write Me Off", and the NBC series "The Village".
