Laura Ozment Schenck, producer
Ever since making my first film in junior high school, I knew that film and television production would be my life's work. Professionally, I have been involved in local and national level television production for the better part of two decades. During that time, I have worked with many filmmakers and television personalities including television pioneer Walter Cronkite, news and public affairs maven Bill Moyers and nationally acclaimed filmmaker David Grubin.
Late in 2001, I left the fast paced frenetic lifestyle of documentary filmmaking in New York City in favor of the more balanced approach Maine has to offer. I was eager to work on the Maine Public Broadcasting Network's QUEST series because of the enormous potential I felt the series held in exposing the wonders of scientific study being performed on a local level.
I have worked on many award-winning films. Highlights include, two productions that won national Emmy Awards, another was awarded the Alfred I. DuPont-Columbia Award for Excellence in Broadcast Journalism and another was awarded the Cable Ace Award for best documentary series.
I currently live in central Maine with my husband and two children.
