Harvey Hubbell V.
Harvey Hubbell V is an "itinerant filmmaker" - he has shot from the high-rise roofs of Warsaw to the banana boats of Peru. His documentaries have won more than 50 film and video festival awards, including four Emmys. He wrote and directed the multi-award winning comic documentary Electronic Road Film, which received an Emmy for Outstanding Entertainment Program. Loop Dreams, Harvey's first feature-length documentary, won the Gold World Medal for Comedy at The New York Festivals and three Emmys for Outstanding Entertainment Program, Individual Achievement for Directing, and Program Writing.
Harvey was diagnosed with dyslexia as a grade school-er in the 1960s, back in the cave days of understanding and treating this life long condition. Growing up with this learning curve had a profound impact on how he pictured himself and the world. Harvey's different visual sense found a natural outlet in filmmaking, a medium that gave his out of the box creativity a home as a writer, producer and visual storyteller. His experience also inspired his life long mission to make media that matters, to positively re-frame our cultural approach to education and social equity and shift perceptions of learning disabilities as learning differences.
