Briana Young

Visual anthropologist Briana Young studied cultural anthropology as an undergraduate at UCLA, and earned her Master's degree through USC's Visual Anthropology program. She has worked on non-fiction productions in multiple forms from cutting edge multi-media series, to feature length documentaries such as Emmy-nominated Superheroes.

Her short film, Screw It, I'll Play Make Believe, has been screened internationally at festivals, broadcasted nationally on The Documentary Channel, and received distribution from Tribeca Film Institutes Reframe Collection. She recently completed a project for Novica, in association with National Geographic, where she spent two months in Ghana filming a series of documentaries on artisans in the region. As she travels the world filming and conducting field work, Young strives to use her camera to tell compelling stories that deepen our understanding of the human experience.
