Kelsie is an Australian documentary director and cinematographer based in Utah, who lives to tell stories with honesty and nuance.
She currently makes short docs at KUER’s RadioWest Films (NPR affiliate) focusing on character-driven stories of the American West.
As a visual journalist, Kelsie resonates with projects that exist in the fuzzy space between black and white. She matches her greatest strengths of composition, story and connection with narratives that embrace humanity and challenge preconceived ideas.
Her work has been featured on PBS, The Atlantic Selects, NPR, Slate, NPR’s Science Friday, NPR Utah (KUER) and film festivals around the world. Her work on a doc series focusing on a South African woman with dementia, was recently a finalist in the Online Journalism Awards for ‘Excellence and Innovation in Visual Digital Storytelling’.
