Jumping on the Baby Babbling Bandwagon

Tobey List

    As a co-producer on “Secret Life,” Tobey is able to combine two of her favorite things—film and science! She is delighted to finally redeem herself in the eyes of her high-school science teachers, all of whom thought she was destined for a career in science until she shocked and alienated them all and chose….film. After receiving a degree in Journalism and French from UNC—Chapel Hill, Tobey worked for several years at PBS, where she gained a love for documentary. She then threw all logic to the wind and returned to school, earning her MFA in Film from Columbia University. During her studies, she produced numerous award-winning short films and associate-produced the feature documentary “No Impact Man.” Tobey is a writer and producer for both documentary and narrative film.
