Biography of Director Marcy Cravat:

Marcelina Cravat, trained at the Art Center College of Design as a photographer, and The Berkeley Digital Film Institute as a filmmaker, debuts her first environmental documentary, Angel Azul. Making a transition from photography to film came later in life when her love for storytelling motivated her to return to school to pursue a career as a writer/director. Upon graduating she co-founded ARTiDOCs, a small production company specializing in portrait style documentaries on artists. Her love for art and nature make Angel Azul the perfect project for her at this time.
