Description

I scripted, directed, shot and edited this 35 minute documentary for my undergraduate thesis. The best way to solve our transportation challenges is to design our communities in ways that do not create them. This documentary features a series of interviews with planners, local government officials, developers and citizens. In addition, I traveled to Burlington VT, Boulder CO, Portland OR and Washington DC to capture on-site footage and analyze prime examples of land use planning and smart growth applications. The public process is then described so citizens can take what they have learned and implement change in their own communities. My documentary explored the following concepts in relation to solving transportation challenges: -Peak Oil -Transportation Infrastructure -Comprehensive Plans and Zoning Ordinances -Local Government Processes -Transit Oriented Development -Communication and Collaboration
