ABOUT THE FILM
Green Builders, a one-hour high definition special, profiles a cast of green building pioneers who have taken the leap into making their part of the “built environment” a more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly place.
Bob Szuter
NJN Writer/Producer

Bob Szuter works on a variety of long-format NJN productions in the roles of writer, editor, and producer. Most of these projects focus on New Jersey’s history, natural history, and environmental issues. Prior to Green Builders, Szuter wrote and produced A Greener Greater Newark, which profiled the urban greening movement in Newark and was recently nominated for a New York regional Emmy in the Best Environmental Documentary category. In 2006, Szuter co-produced Turning the Tide with Lynn Kosek Walker, shooting in and around the wetlands of the Hackensack Meadowlands and the Hamilton-Trenton Marsh. The show is distributed nationally through American Public Television and was also nominated in New York for an Emmy as Best Environmental Documentary.

Szuter’s 2004 effort, The Highlands Rediscovered, was a high definition documentary exploring the relationship between urban water supply and forestland, using New Jersey’s Highlands as its visual case study. He also wrote the script for Thunderbolts of Millville, which tells the story of how an army air force training base changed a small south Jersey town during World War II. Both programs were later distributed nationally. Another was NJN’s first high-definition program, Touring New Jersey: A Pleasant Land To See, which Szuter co-edited; it was nominated in 2002 for a Mid-Atlantic Emmy Award for Best Entertainment Program.

Bob Szuter has been working in film and video production at NJN since 1987, first as an associate producer, sound recordist, and editor, and more recently as a writer and producer, always under the experienced direction of veteran NJN producer Lou Presti. He attended Brown University, majoring in both American History and Semiotics (now Media/Communications). In 1999, Szuter received the Mid-Atlantic Emmy Award for Outstanding Individual Achievement as a Writer in the Programming category. In July 2001, he was one of twenty producers across the country chosen to attend the first annual PBS Producers Academy Workshop at WGBH, an eight day intensive workshop with some of the leading figures in all aspects of production for PBS.
