DAVID GAYNES, Director / Producer / Camera / Editor

Next Year in Jerusalem is David's third documentary feature. Saving Hubble (2012) tells the story of America's fight to save a beloved scientific icon from becoming space junk. The Hubble Roadshow is the film's unconventional chautauqua-style distribution campaign through which it has been seen in non-traditional venues across the country and at the International Astronomical Union General Assembly in Beijing. Keeper of the Kohn (2005) won the Jury Prize for best documentary at the Vail Film Festival and the Audience Award at the Palm Beach Film Festival and has been seen on television, in theatrical venues and the internet. More Than Skin Deep (short, 2002) was seen on select public television stations. David is an accomplished cinematographer, having recently photographed the award-winning documentary All Me: The Life and Times of Winfred Rembert (Dir. Vivian Ducat, 2011). David is routinely enlisted as a director, cameraman and editor for an array of television, corporate and non-profit videos and films.
