An award-winning documentary producer and writer with over a decade of experience in Natural History filmmaking, Gianna’s work has been featured worldwide on Discovery, PBS, Animal Planet, National Geographic, and the BBC among others.
Trained as an Environmental Biologist, she pairs her love of science with the art of filmmaking to craft the stories that not only inform, but deeply resonate. Her pursuit of powerful environmental storytelling has led her high over Himalayan peaks, across our mighty oceans, and deep through the Amazon basin to explore the direct connections between humans and the natural world.
In 2010, Gianna wrote and produced, Wolverine: Chasing the Phantom for the PBS series, NATURE which has won several awards and was recently nominated for an Emmy for “Outstanding Nature Program.” She is currently writing and story-producing, a theatrical feature documentary about the Pacific Ocean, called Our Blue Canoe, due for release in 2013.
In addition to filmmaking, her stories and articles have appeared in publications around the world. And in her quest to “pay it forward,” Gianna also teaches in the MFA program for Science and Natural History Filmmaking at Montana State University in Bozeman.
