Chelsea Greene is a filmmaker specializing in documentary storytelling about wildlife and forests. Inspired by her childhood in the woods of rural Vermont, she attended American University for her BA and MFA in Environmental and Wildlife Filmmaking. She has since worked on projects as both a cinematographer and editor that have appeared on Nat Geo WILD, PBS, NBC Universal, CNC, and Maryland Public Television. In 2018, Chelsea was an associate producer, editor, and cinematographer for Trending China, an award winning TV show broadcast on NBC Universal, Bravo and in 96 countries on CNC, that documents life in China through a range of human interest pieces.
Most recently, she finished work on a three year long documentary project with director Kent Wagner called Borneo's Vanishing Tribes. The film details the horrifying destruction of Borneo’s rainforests and how the Dayak people are fighting to save their way of life, forests, and culture from the insatiable palm oil industry. The film is currently on a successful festival tour following its world premiere at the Carnegie Institute for Science as a part of the DC Environmental Film Festival. It recently won the “Compassion Award” from Cinema Verde International Environmental Festival. Wendi Tamariska, one of the main characters of the film, has since gone on to win the Whitley Award, bringing more than $80,000 USD to his organization protecting orangutans and rainforests with sustainable livelihoods.
