Buddy Terry III

Class of 2023

Buddy Terry is a filmmaker and cinematographer, born in Portland and raised in rural Saint Helens Oregon, who draws inspiration from growing up in a small-town. As a producer, Buddy’s creative work aims to challenge ideological preconceptions, and advance craft convention. As a trained anthropologist Buddy holds the philosophy that one’s understanding of the world is directly influenced by their environment, and can be subsequently narrowed as a result. His work ranges from commercial multimedia production to long form ethnography and documentary films, most recently with Reveal, the Center for Investigative Reporting. Buddy is currently a second year pursuing a masters of documentary film at the University of California, Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism.
