Amanda Stoddard is an active member of the 1Revolution team. As documentary film director, 1Revolution was Stoddard’s first film, which was written up by Forbes. A graduate of the University of Utah Film School, Amanda has been an industry professional more than 10 years. She has worked on network television, commercial and theatrical projects including many self-produced shorts. 1Revolution has been a labor of love from the start taking over 3 years to produce with vast amounts of footage and a constricted budget. The film succeeded due to Amanda’s determination and skill, where she often stepped in as a camera op or editor when needed in order to complete the film.
