Meet The Winners: Jackson Tisi

Continuing in our series of winners’ interviews, Jackson Tisi is talking to shots News Editor Daniel about his filmmaking journey and his powerful film LEON, which won Gold at YDA 2020, in the Passion Project category.

Tune it to learn about Jackson’s path from making skiing videos in his home state of Wyoming, to his current projects blending real stories with narrative filmmaking. We’ll be hearing about the inspiring process of making LEON, the hand-off approach needed to be an authentic window onto someone’s life, and how when it comes to documentary filmmaking, plans are made to be disrupted.

Check out Jackson’s film, LEON
