About Me

5D Profile 1My name is Garrett Graham. I was born in Plano, Texas and now I live in Denton Texas. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in radio, television and film and a Master of Fine Arts degree in documentary film making from the University of North Texas. My thesis was published in the spring of 2017.

As a documentary filmmaker I like to seek out those stories of hope and resistance that we need in these dangerous times. I’ve made numerous videos documenting social movements in the North Texas region including my first documentary film, Blockadia Rising: Voices of the Tar Sands Blockade (2013) and my current project, Don’t Frack With Denton (2017).

I am an adjunct instructor at the UNT Department of Media Arts where I’ve taught undergraduate classes in audio production and screenwriting as well as more comprehensive, hands-on courses covering all aspects of short video production. (Specifically, Intro to Audio, Intro to Film, Intro to Screenwriting and Short Film Production)

I’ve worked as an independent videographer with organizations such as Students for a Democratic Society, Rising Tide North America, The Dallas Peace Center, the Z Media Institute, Greenpeace and the Tar Sands Blockade.

I have previously collaborated with filmmaker John Fiege on a documentary film about environmental activism surrounding the Keystone XL pipeline. That film is called Above All Else and it premiered at SXSW 2014.

My long-term goal is to produce as many documentaries as I can in this lifetime and make some small contribution to the survival and betterment of life on our fragile planet. I seek that intersection between signification and significance where our actions become our histories.
