Filming Docs (aka Abe Forman-Greenwald)

I've been working as a producer, director and editor in web video, film and TV for the past 12 years. I am currently a Video Producer at BuzzFeed Motion Pictures where I write, direct, produce and edit two short videos a week for BuzzFeed's various video distribution channels which include YouTube, Yahoo Screen and AOL On. 

Before starting at BuzzFeed, I worked as a producer at HuffPost Live, where I produced human interest pieces, news segments, and celebrity interviews with Ken Burns, Deepak Chopra, Ed Begley, Jr., Marlee Matlin, Richard Linklater, Big Boi from Outkast and many others. 

I also directed episodes of the PBS Series "In Their Boots", a short film called "Via Text", produced "The Man's Guide To Love", and directed a feature documentary called "Geeks On Board." Also, I edited "Creature Comforts America" and "The Simpsons Ride" at Universal Studios, Woo Hoo!

Some nice recognition that happened along the way:
