About the Instructor

Tiffany Burnett

I work as a digital filmmaker - producing, shooting, and editing video content here in New York City.  I've worked primarily producing travel content for the Travel Channel; but also work as a shooter/producer for various companies like the New York Post, Travelistic, and Current TV. I've found video to be the most effective form of storytelling, and I love the challenge of using something as simple as my camera and laptop to deliver a strong and meaningful message.
