Long haunted by the ephemeral nature of live performance, but undeniably formed as a storyteller by her vivid experiences in experimental theater, music, and performance art, Storm Garner has been studying film and video art at Columbia University since 2010, hoping to someday master a more archivable medium. She works regularly in independent film in NYC as a screenwriter, script doctor, production designer, art director, composer, music consultant, producer, and of course actor–in short: she enjoys helping her fellow filmmakers realize their storytelling dreams however she can, connecting talented artists to one another, and continuously learning from a diverse set of creative processes.
