Gianna Savoie

Ocean Media Institute
Executive Director

Gianna Savoie is an award-winning documentary producer, writer, and professor with nearly two decades of experience in Natural History filmmaking and a penchant for powerful storytelling that has led her to sink her teeth into some of the most critical conservation issues on the planet.  Trained as an environmental biologist, she pairs her love of science with the art of filmmaking to craft stories that not only inform, but deeply resonate.  Her work has been featured on PBS, National Geographic, Discovery, and the BBC, among others, as well as in theatrical documentaries and in print and web publications. Dubbed The Mountain Mermaid, Gianna has founded the Ocean Media Institute, a non-profit global media collective that serves to enrich and expand the public's understanding of ocean science and conservation through the collaborative creation, exhibition, and open-distribution of innovative visual media and artistic approaches to ocean education.
