Area(s) of Specialty: Jacob A. Dodd is an award-winning independent filmmaker who creates short films in 35mm, 16mm, and Super 8mm.  He specializes in docufiction filmmaking, traditional celluloid cinematography, experimental practices, and Film to HD post production workflows.  In 2009, Dodd completed Darkness There, a visual poem that explores Edgar Allan Poe’s dark romanticism through the blending of Poe’s life and stories with authentic historical artifacts. Dodd’s fascination lies in the linkage of time periods to examine both private and public oral histories. He uses traditional film techniques to bring forth a feeling of nostalgia, a transcendence of time, and a sense of the familiar.   His work has been recognized by the Virginia Film Festival, Athens International Film + Video Festival, Big Muddy Film Festival, Rosebud Film & Video Festival, the James River Film Festival, the Jacksonville Film Festival, and the DC Independent Film Festival.
