Series Producer & Editor
Michelle Mizner is an Emmy-winning documentary maker at FRONTLINE PBS. As a director, producer, writer, shooter, film and audio editor, her work for the series spans many storytelling forms. She was the producer, writer, and creative director of INHERITANCE, an interactive documentary that earned a News and Documentary Emmy for Outstanding New Approaches: Documentary; a Peabody Awards nomination; and was recognized by the Peabodys with an inaugural “Futures of Media” award. The next interactive film she produced, shot and edited, THE LAST GENERATION, told the stories of three children growing up in the Marshall Islands, a low-lying nation threatened by rising seas. It also earned a News and Documentary Emmy for Outstanding New Approaches: Documentary; was named “Interactive of the Year” by World Press Photo; and was cited in FRONTLINE’s 2018 duPont-Columbia Gold Baton award. Michelle’s work also appears on the national television broadcast. In 2017, she produced and edited INSIDE YEMEN with correspondent Martin Smith. The film was nominated for a News and Documentary Emmy for Best Story in a News Magazine. She has edited multiple films for FRONTLINE and has produced for their podcast series, 'The Dispatch'. No matter the form, Michelle’s main obsession is to find and tell great stories.
