about transect

Transect Films creates inspiring videos with purpose. True to our name, we survey the landscape, taking observations through the lens, to build a captivating story for your audience. We specialize in creating stories that are fueled by the spirit of adventure and discovery, with the hope of making the world a better place. Transect Films is a Social Purpose Corporation and a member of the University of Washington Applied Physics Lab Collaboratory – telling the exciting stories of science to inspire audiences.


Faith spent her early years jumping between careers as an archaeologist, scientific illustrator, graphic designer, and video production coordinator at National Geographic in Washington, DC. She has a MS in resource management, and specializes in documentary-style video and photography that focuses on science, culture and nature. She especially loves the projects that get her out and about.


Before joining Transect, Simon worked for the U.S. Senate, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, and the Northwest Straits Commission to advance a wide range of issues, including ocean policy, renewable energy R&D, and citizen-driven environmental conservation. He takes pride in crafting compelling stories that deliver impact for Transect’s partners. Like Faith, Simon is at home in the field with earlier careers as an archaeologist and marine outreach specialist, instilling a love for the natural world and a high tolerance for being dirty, cold, and wet.
