60 Seconds With Documentary Filmmaker Allison Otto

Watch Allison Otto, award winning documentary filmmaker, cinematographer, and visual journalist, share how the most rewarding part of her career is how she can bring about positive change in the world and give people a more nuanced perspective of another person's life. Another fun thing about her job is that there is no typical day – one day she might be filming from the inner circle of Stonehenge at dawn, and another day she could be filming a new species of worm that might give insights into how organisms might develop on Mars. She encourages girls to consider a career in filmmaking because it's important to hear stories from their perspective, too.
