Margo Guernsey produces, directs and writes non-profit and industrial videos for the web, and has two feature length documentary films in process. COUNCILWOMAN, the story of a hotel housekeeper who sits on the City Council in Providence, RI, is in postproduction; and A SONG OF HOPE, a historical documentary about human rights leader Pauli Murray, is in development. Guernsey also teaches documentary filmmaking workshops at NewTV.
Prior to moving to Boston, Guernsey worked as a Producer at WPBT2, Miami’s PBS Station. Guernsey came to filmmaking after a successful career in fundraising and communications for non-profits. Her documentary short, The Bonus March as told by Walter Waters, won Best Producing at the Canes Film Festival/University of Miami, and an Honorable Mention at the Chris Awards, part of the Colombus International Film and Video Festival. Guernsey founded Time Travel Productions in 2012 as a venue to produce documentary films. Her films have received support from Chicken and Egg Pictures, LEF Moving Image Fund, Mass Humanities, and RI Council on the Humanities.
She holds an MFA in film production from the University of Miami, an MA in history from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, and a BA from Brown University. Guernsey is bilingual Spanish/English, and the proud mother of two young children.
