My name is Warren Gentry and I live in Raleigh, NC. Here is the short bio that I posted. It probably serves as the best introduction for me. Nice to be here!
I have been in filmmaking for over 30 years and have photographed several feature length documentaries. A few of these films have been awarded regional Emmys. I mainly make my living doing short promotional and informational videos for non-profits, corporations and educational institutions. But as time goes by I find more and more that my interest lie in the long form documentary. I have a couple of projects I am working on now and would like to learn something about the art and craft of finding funding for such endeavors. In addition I have traveled to over twenty-five countries documenting indigenous lifestyles and humanitarian efforts to assist these indigenous peoples.
Here is a partial list of films I have photographed.
"February One": The story of the 4 college students that fired up the civil rights movement in 1960. http://www.februaryonedocumentary.com/
"Alamance": A docudrama recreating the first local skirmish between the Queens army and local farmers in North Carolina that was a precursor to the Revolutionary War.
"Melungeon Voices": The story of a mysterious group of mixed race people living in Appalachia. http://www.melungeonvoices.com/
