Elizabeth Herzfeldt-Kamprath is the Multimedia Specialist for SESYNC. Her work at the Center focuses on developing and creating video stories that help communicate the important work being done by SESYNC-funded teams and that illustrate the synthesis process to broad audiences.
Elizabeth earned a Master of Fine Arts in Film & Electronic Media with a concentration on Environmental and Wildlife Filmmaking at American University. She has worked on films that focus on the Potomac River, solar co-ops, the Alberta tar sands, and youth in Honduras. Most recently, her thesis film featured a bird rehabilitator in the U.S. Virgin Islands. While her research primarily focuses on environmental filmmaking, she is interested in better understanding effective ways of communicating scientific stories that have a human impact through film.
Elizabeth attended Pacific Lutheran University for her undergraduate studies, where she participated in MediaLab, an award-winning, student-run media organization offered through the School of Arts and Communication. MediaLab gave her the opportunity to work professionally with clients to create promotional and archival videos, as well as to work on two feature documentary films.
