Myles David Jewell is a freelance filmmaker and content creator who splits time between Brooklyn, NY and Burlington, VT.
He runs Pennington Productions and works independently on both feature documentaries and narrative films.
Experimenting with form and content, Myles feels it is important to have a relationship between theory and practice.
Myles teaches documentary for social change and community based cinema at the University of Vermont. For years, he worked for a small cultural institution, The Vermont Folklife Center where he helps to build out the education program, Discovering Community, as a digital media instructor, media literacy advocate, and educational outreach consultant.
Myles earned a Master of Arts in Cinema Studies from New York University and an Advanced Certificate from The Program in Culture and Media. His scholarship focuses on the tension between fiction and non-fiction and is rooted in Ethnographic approaches to media. He believes firmly in the ethics of representation and collaborative approaches to media production, while his practice fluctuates between minimal resource filmmaking and larger more technical productions.
