Archerfish works with a small team of exceptional producers, editors, composers, animators, and writers to deliver short films for a wide variety of clients.
She is currently producing a feature-length science documentary for VICE/Motherboard, with funding from The Simons Foundation. The film follows nine scientists across the world as they search for answers to some of humanity’s biggest questions. Together, the physicists, astronomers, biologists, and neuroscientists, explore the most unknown areas of each other’s work. Along the way, they stumble upon something fundamental about the nature of discovery: Why are seemingly unanswerable questions worth asking? Directed by Peabody Award-winning documentarian Ian Cheney and advised by legendary filmmaker Werner Herzog, the film will be released in early 2018.
