Brett Kuxhausen

Hailing from the heartland of rural America, I’ve had a lifelong obsession with storytelling; weekly treks to the movies at the big city theater 30 miles away, countless books lit by flashlight under my sheets late at night, a stack of cassette music always shuffling . But after earning a BS degree in biological sciences, and later a MFA in Science and Natural Filmmaking, I found the stories I wanted to tell.

Storytelling, specifically visual media, wields a power to heal in the Age of the Anthropocene. What I film and photograph is an effort to contribute a positive change towards wildlife, conservation, and people.

In the few years I have been working professionally, I have independently filmed and produced a variety of pieces for clients such as National Geographic WILD/RED Digital Cinema, The National Science Foundation, and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution/Ocean Media Institute. Currently, I am lead cinematographer and field producer for the media unit of Mozambique's flagship conservation area, Gorongosa National Park. Here, I work on feature-length films, television specials, and short-form videos for institutions such as National Geographic, PBS, The Howard Hughes Medical Institute, and Mozambique national television.
