Filmmaking has been at the heart of our relationship since the beginning, which was high school in the late 1980's.  We took the plunge and began making films some years later while Jason was attending law school.  Since then, we’ve been working together, as well as collaborating with others, refining our craft and chiseling a distinct voice.  Outside of our own fiction and non-fiction projects, the experience of working on a wide variety of documentaries, first with Maysles Films and then for many, many years with the Science Bulletins team at the American Museum of Natural History, has been invaluable.  At the museum, Leigh served as Bulletins' Production Manager from 2001 through 2008.  Jason joined the department in 2009 as an Editor and is currently a Senior Producer.  Our academic backgrounds in Media Studies, History, African American Studies, Literature and, like a mosquito buzzing in our ears, the Law, have had an immense influence on the kinds of stories we tell.  We have four wonderful boys, which makes for a loud and rambunctious home that is a lot of fun and difficult to keep clean.
