Hi, my name is Zak Voreh. I’m a broadcast journalism student in the P.I.Reed School of Journalism at West Virginia University. I enjoy meeting new people and hearing life stories. I also have a keen interest in adventure sports like backpacking and free-diving.
I have always been a bit of a movie buff, and that paired with my love of new experiences naturally sparked an interest in documentaries. Two documentary series made a major impact on my life goals; the first is the BBC series Planet Earth , and the second is Restrepo.
Both of these films in my opinion capture the best in documentary film making, and also inspired me to become a documentary film maker , and to write this blog about the history of documentaries and the evolution of the field.
