|Filmmaker / editor / Codirector and editor, A WILL FOR THE WOODS.|
Filmmaker and editor Tony Hale first discovered digital editing through recording loops of his drum kit. Later, while studying Mathematics at Boston College and working at a Harvard University media lab, he rediscovered this passion in filmmaking. A Will for the Woods marks his first feature and is a continuation of his love for environmental documentary. Previously he has edited and co-directed numerous projects on a range of topics including the Darién forest in Panama; reef, mangrove, and jaguar preservation in Belize; and watershed protection in Costa Rica. Recently he co-edited Do the Math, which follows Bill McKibben, 350.org, and others as they build a movement to address climate change’s "terrifying new math." Among his other favorite projects are a personal documentary exploring his mother’s artwork, the making of OK Go’s “This Too Shall Pass,” and numerous narrative shorts, including Meena, based on the book Half the Sky. Tony lives in Brooklyn, NY.
