Jay Allison

Jay Allison is best known for his own audio documentaries and his encouragement of other audio makers via Transom.org, the Public Radio Exchange, and the Moth Radio Hour. But he's a fine "one man crew" documentary filmmaker as well. (Check out his useful tips for videographers, especially his advice on acquiring certain shots in the field that will come in handy as transitional and cutaway material in the editing room.) Allison's video documentary Castaways: The Boys of Penikese Island originally aired in 1994 on Nightline with a rave intro from Ted Koppel.
